Belmont Stakes Betting

In 2015, the Triple Crown was was won by American Pharoah, Victor Espinoza and Bob Baffert -- they captured the 147th running of the Grade 1, $1.5 million Belmont Stakes on Saturday at Belmont Park.

After the 2016 Preakness Stakes, the chance for a Triple Crown was ended by Exaggerator's win over Nyquist. We were hoping to see a great match race between these two brave colts but an elevated fever has forced Nyquist's connections to pull him from racing at Belmont. Of course, the question on everybody's mind will be whether Exaggerator will win the Belmont Stakes or if another horse win the white carnations. See you on Saturday, June 11th!

Did you know that betting favorites have won about 44% percent of the Belmont Stakes? Odds-on favorites are a less productive 12-for-30 and the last five were defeated.

The last odds-on favorite to win the Belmont was the last Triple Crown winner, Affirmed in 1978. Big Brown was favored to win the Belmont Stakes and become a Triple Crown Winner; however, he finished in last place.
