Here is a little trivia about the three races:
The name "furlong" dates back to early Anglo-Saxon times, it originally referred to the length of the furrow in one acre of ploughed open field.
Kentucky Derby: 1 1/4 miles = 10 furlongs
The Preakness Stakes: 1 3/16 miles = 9 1/2 furlongs
The Belmont Stakes: 1 1/2 miles = 12 furlongs
One furlong = 1/8 mile
