T-minus 2 days and counting until the 2010 Belmont Stakes betting action gets underway. When the gate drops this Saturday on the 142nd running of the Belmont odds competition the best horses will be running out of the best lanes and horseracing odds fans should see quite a finish as the finest horses in this year’s Belmont Stakes betting drew the best post assignments and should run unfettered in what should be tremendous race.
Too often horseracing odds fans see the top contenders in a Triple Crown betting event handicapped by getting pinched against the rail in Lane 1, or having to make a Herculean attempt to cut across the field when they draw an outside lane assignment.
But in this year’s Belmont Stakes betting competition the top horses, for the most part have superb post positions and should have a clear shot at the 2010 Belmont odds title.
Ice Box is the early favorite in the Belmont Stakes betting action coming in at 3-1 odds and with good reason. Starting out of Lane 6 the horse could hardly get better track positioning and this horse has proven he’s big time runner with a win at the Florida Derby, a second place finish at the Kentucky Derby and he’s got a big tank for the 1 ½ mile distance.
First Dude didn’t get the dream post position that Ice Box did and will start the 2010 Belmont Stakes betting action way outside in Lane 11. But at 1 ½ miles distance the outside lane draw isn’t all that crucial and this horse has great capacity at this distance. After being edged out of win by a hair two weeks ago at the Preakness betting action, this horse is top form and ready for a Triple Crown betting title and 7-2 odds he’s the second favorite.
Fly Down is the last horse in the top three and enters the Belmont odds contest with 9-2 odds. Fly Down will also has dream post position running out of Lane 5 and could be most exciting horse to watch in this horseracing odds competition on Saturday. While he hasn’t been featured in any Triple Crown betting contests this year he has been en fuego at Belmont wining the Dwyer Stakes event by an impressive 6 lengths.
