Today is the 144th running of the Belmont Stakes betting action will get underway and oldest of the Triple Crown betting races will celebrate another historic chapter in its existence. Since there will be no Triple Crown winner crowned at the Belmont odds event this year that doesn’t mean that there won’t be plenty of compelling horse racing odds action.
This year there are several horses that standout in the Belmont odds. The two winners of the first two Triple Crown betting have to be considered in any discussion about a possible Belmont Stakes betting winner. But this year neither Super Saver the winner of the Kentucky Derby horse racing odds action, nor Lookin’ at Lucky, the winner of the horse racing odds event at the Preakness will be running in the third and final leg of the most prestigious event in horse racing.
Instead this year’s Belmont odds field will consist of some lesser known horses than in the past. As is the trend in recent years in horse betting if a horse has no shot at winning the Triple Crown many owners are now pulling their horses to rest them for more lucrative races later in the year.
Nonetheless there are still several high profile horses that will contend for the Belmont betting title. First Dude is a horse that was looked on somewhat favorably by the horse racing odds makers in the first two legs of the Triple Crown betting but never ran to his potential. Here on the longer track there should be a lot more room to operate and this horse should have his best chance at winning at Triple Crown at Belmont.
Make Music for me is another horse that might raise some eyebrows when the Belmont Stakes betting finally gets underway. This southern California-based horse is accustomed to running the synthetic surfaces out west but should adjust just fine to Belmont. In a field of lesser known horses in this year’s Belmont odds competition, this is horse to keep an eye on.
Drosselmyer is another horse that hasn’t garnered much attention in popular horse betting but with a watered down field and 1 ½ mile this horse has a great chance to make its mark in big stakes race.
