Belmont Stakes Race Prediction - Belmont Park
California Chrome has been cleared to wear nasal strips for the race. Now he must conquer the longest leg of the Triple Crown, Belmont Park's mile and a half track.
For someone looking to bet on anyone other than California Chrome there's bad news. Art Sherman's colt has not only already beaten most of the Belmont Stakes field and did it in a way that was very impressive. He rushed out of the gate and kept a solid pace throughout the race.
And in the final stretch, California Chrome kicked it into another gear and literally left the field in the dust.
This is why pace and speed are also important. In the past 15 years the favorite has struggled, especially Triple Crown hopefuls as they have lost every time.
If California Chrome takes this year’s Belmont he will be the 12th Triple Crown winner in history, and the first since Affirmed in 1978.
While the post draw isn’t until Wednesday prior to the race, California Chrome will undoubtedly be favored.
Belmont stakes Facts and History
The Belmont Stakes was first run on June 19, 1867, at the Jerome Park race course, an oddly shaped, English-style track that required the Jockeys and horses to run three turns instead of two because of a dip in the middle of the backstretch.
A filly named “Ruthless” won the first Belmont's $1,850 winners purse, outlasting DeCourcey by a head. The race has been run every since, with the exception of 1911 and '12, and the Belmont has established itself as the ultimate test of championship stamina in this country. Its 1-1/2-mile distance now has become a rarity in American dirt races. - Continue

The Chestnut Colt, Palace Malice was the winner at the 2013 Belmont Stakes after outlasting the field at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Palace Malice, ridden by Mike Smith and sent off at odds of 13-1, returned $29.60, $11.20 and $6.70.
The 145th Belmont Stakes was a close race entering the final turn, when Palace Malice put on the jets and separated from the pack. Palace Malice, who finished 12th in the Derby and skipped the Preakness, covered the 1 1/2 miles in a slow 2:30.70 on a fast track following a 24-hour downpour.
The colt owned by Cot Campbell's Dogwood Stable won by 3 1/4 lengths after passing pacesetter Oxbow. Orb made a late move but came up far short and finished third.
The win gave Todd Pletcher his second Belmont win in six years, and vindicated the trainer's support of a 3-year-old who came into the final leg of the Triple Crown with only one victory. The colt was one of a record five entries by Pletcher.
