The Belmont Stakes betting action is just a week away and while the official field won’t be announced for a few more days it’s not hard to make an accurate guess as to what the field for this horseracing odds jewel will look like. With several big name horses already declaring they won’t run in the Belmont odds contest the field of possible contenders has been narrowed and without further ado, the probable field of 12 entrants for the 2010 Belmont Stakes betting action:
Drosselmeyer is all but certainly going to run. This is a horse that has a lot of name recognition but has failed to live up to the hype. He’s won just one career horseracing odds race and was recently beaten at Belmont Park by a mile in a graded stakes race he was heavily favored in.
Make Music for Me finished fourth in the Kentucky Derby betting on a rain soaked track. There is nothing special about this horse.
New Madrid is likely to be included in the Belmont odds competition. This horse faces long odds in the sports betting as its claim to fame is a 6th-place finish in the Arkansas Derby betting.
Game on Dude is a legit Belmont odds contender. After winning the Lone Star Derby this shot has an outside chance of winning Belmont.
Stately Victor has the pedigree and the hype but so far has been a disappointment in the 2010 horseracing odds action. An 8th-place finish in the Kentucky Derby odds action is hardly a ringing endorsement.
Stay Put is long-shot by any stretch of the imagination. It’s most notable finish in the 2010 horseracing odds action is a 5th place finish at the Louisiana Derby.
First Dude is a horse that has come on strong of late and has a real shot at winning the Belmont Stakes betting; finished second at the Preakness, though the 1/12 mile track might be a challenge.
Spangled Star is a very long shot that most sports betting fans have probably never heard of; finished 3rd at the Withers Stakes.
Ice Box could the horse to watch in the Belmont Stakes betting action. This horse came second at the Kentucky Derby, losing by a hair, and has great capacity at the 11/2 mile distance.
Fly Down is also a top contender after winning the Dwyer Stakes on May 8th at Belmont Park; very good looking horse.
Yawanna Twist. Uptowncharlybrown and Dave in Dixie round out the Belmont odds field as recognizable names but long shots just the same with no great finishes so far this year. This takes the Belmont Staked Betting entries to Eleven) 11).
