Bet On The Belmont Stakes

BELMONT_STAKE-395With no Triple Crown winner on the line, the Belmont Stakes loses only a little bit of its shine, but it will nonetheless garner a lot of interest from the racing world. Both the Kentucky Derby winner as well as the Preakness winner will be in the field of fourteen, the largest for the race since 1996, at Belmont Park, and with wet conditions expected, it should be an open and exciting race.

Even though the Belmont Stakes won’t be seeing an attempt for the Triple Crown, it will still be a captivating race. Winner of the Kentucky Derby, Orb, is the leading favourite with the bookies prior to the race, but it will be a tight one to call in a reasonably well balanced field, and he will have to run a strong race to repeat his two and a half length victory at the Kentucky Derby.

Perhaps first among Orb’s main contenders is Preakness winner Oxbow, who will be out to show that his win was not a one-time thing. He beat Orb comfortably in the Preakness, Orb actually finishing fourth in that race.

Orb’s trainer, Shug McGaughey was aware of the fact that the race wasn’t going to be an easy one for his horse, but was in any case happy with his charge’s chances: There’s probably a few in there that don’t figure, but they’ve got just as much license to run as Orb or Oxbow or anybody else. I’m not going to worry about it because it makes this a good, solid field.”

Sandwiched between Orb and Oxbow is Revolutionary, who is the second pick for the race at this stage. Revolutionary finished in third behind Orb in the Kentucky Derby, in conditions similar to those that are expected at Belmont on Sunday, and may be a factor for the race.
