After the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, and the Preakness at Pimlico, horse racing bettors and fans focus on the Belmont Stakes horse racing odds.
The Belmont Stakes in 2018 will have a lot of drama, as Justify goes for the Triple Crown. Justify is listed as the odds-on favorite to win the Belmont Stakes, but he will be getting more competition than he got in the Preakness Stakes, as the field is expected to be larger. Justify is trained by Bob Baffert who won the Triple Crown with American Pharoah in 2015. Baffert had failed Triple Crown attempts with Silver Charm in 1997, Real Quiet in 1998 and War Emblem in 2002. Justify will be trying to become just the 13th Triple Crown winner. Justify is coming off a win in the Preakness but the victory was not dominating and Justify looked like a horse that could be running out of gas. The Belmont Stakes will be his third race in five weeks and he will be going a grueling mile and a half.
Bravazo, for trainer D. Wayne Lukas, finished sixth in the Kentucky Derby and he was closing fast in the Preakness to finish second. Lukas was very happy with the peformance of Bravazo. “I just loved the way he ran. We’d like to have won it, but I think we needed another 15 yards and maybe we could have gotten it done,” Lukas said after the race. “After studying the video we were running the fastest of any of them at the end.” The added distance of the Belmont should help the horse. “He’s a tough little horse and I think his pedigree will let him run that far,” Lukas added. “So we’ll take him on and see what happens.” Other horses expected to challenge Justify include Tenfold, who finished third in the Preakness and Derby horses, Vino Rosso, My Boy Jack, Solomini, Hofburg and Free Drop Billy. Horses that didn’t run in the Derby but could be entered in the Belmont include Peter Pan Stakes winner Blended Citizen, Peter Pan runner-up Core Beliefs and Gronkowski who was pulled before the Derby.
Another horse that could challenge Justify is Audible, who finished third in the Kentucky Derby, but we may not know for a while if the horse will be entered. He is trained by Todd Pletcher who has won the Belmont three times, but the horse is owned by the same group that owns Justify and they may not want to send Audible in the Belmont.
