It was back in 1867 when the Belmont Stakes odds were first posted. It was first held at Jerome Park Racetrack in Fordham, Westchester County, but has since been moved to Belmont Park, Elmont, New York.
The Belmont Stakes current odds are no longer available this year, as the event was concluded on Saturday. As it stands the 2021 Belmont Stakes odds aren’t available. However, as they become available we’ll list all the odds from the top-rated horse racing betting sites.
The Belmont Stakes is otherwise known as The Test of the Champion and is the third race in the Triple Crown, which also includes the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. Belmont Stakes betting entails wagering on the mile-and-a-half race, except this year it will be a mile-and-an-eighth. Also, while it’s normally the third race in the Triple Crown, it will be the first this year as the horse-racing schedule is rearranged due to the lockdown.
The 2020 Belmont Stakes was run on Saturday, June 20th and was won by the favorite Tiz the Law – winning the race in a time of 1:46:53.
The current Belmont Stakes odds aren’t available right now. The odds are subject to change, so it’s worth checking back with this page regularly to see the movements in the market and make sure the odds are the most up-to-date Belmont Stakes live odds. This page was last updated on June 23, 2020.

Alternatively, we’d recommend going with one of the major providers like MyBookie, which is a well-established sportsbook with years in the industry and a huge community following.
Belmont Stakes Picks and Predictions
Based on the current odds for the Belmont Stakes, Tiz the Law is the clear favorite. He’s won four of his five career races and has started the year excellently, winning two out of two. With much of the top-tier competitions dropping out due to injury or choosing to race elsewhere, it really paves the way for Tiz the Law to win it.
The runner will be on home territory, as a New York-bred and trained horse. With little in the way of competition, we don’t see the current Belmont odds changing too much before the weekend.
The only other real competition comes in the form of Dr. Post, who is an older runner and may struggle to stay in contention with the stamina of the younger runner in Tiz the Law. Given the Belmont Stakes current odds, this is probably the only other runner worth wagering on as a win bet.

Playing the Belmont Stakes Odds
The Belmont Stakes is an interesting event, as it has a huge oval track and the course is a tough run as it’s on a dirt surface. This makes for an interesting betting market, as it’s a real task for oddsmakers to produce odds.
The unpredictability of the event adds to the overall betting experience. For those playing the odds at Belmont Park, it’s important to understand that the run is at a distance less than a mile and a half, otherwise known as “one-turn” races. Meaning that 99% of the races run on the dirt will be on turn events, with the starters beginning on the backstretch of the track.
Aside from the track itself, the event attracts the rich and famous – the famous event has even seen Queen Elizabeth II in attendance a few years back.
What are the Types of Belmont Stakes Odds
Much like all other horse racing betting odds, the Belmont Stakes offers the full range of betting punters would expect to see at any horse racing track meet. The types of bets bettors will find are:
- Daily Double
- Pick 3, 4, 5, 6
The odds for the Belmont Stakes are similar to other Triple Crown betting markets, but the sheer volume of bettors interesting in the event makes it easy to justify Belmont Stakes’ odds betting.
All-time Belmont Stakes Winners
Let’s first take a look at the Belmont Stakes 2019: We must congratulate Sir jockey Joel Rosario who and trainer Mark Casse, who worked with the winner Sir Winston. Sir Winston placed first in the 151st Belmont Stakes by making a bold move at the top of the stretch, beating the favorite Tacitus by a length.
While the Belmont Stakes is very interesting, it’s always great to see runners that managed to win all three U.S. horse racing majors – the highly prestigious Triple Crown.
Looking much further back, we look to one of the greatest Triple Crown winners of all time Secretariat in 1973, setting the race record time at 2:24. 47 years later and the record still stands, which begs the question; will the record ever be broken?
