Belmont Stakes Odds

Belmont Stakes Odds

It was back in 1867 when the Belmont Stakes odds were first posted. The now Classic race, and the third leg of the American Triple Crown, was first held at Jerome Park Racetrack in Fordham, Westchester County, but has since been moved to Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.

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, run five weeks after the Kentucky Derby, and three weeks after the Preakness Stakes.

Belmont Stakes Live Odds

The Belmont Stakes is the kind of horse race that you can’t miss as a bettor. 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 race was shortened to nine furlongs due to the lack of prep races and that it had to move on the calendar due to the pandemic.

Belmont Stakes Morning Line

A handicapper cannot make their Belmont Stakes predictions without access to the Belmont Stakes morning line, which is developed 72 hours out from the race, on the Wednesday beforehand. That is also when the Belmont post positions are announced as well as the Belmont horses odds.

The Belmont Stakes tends to go to either a big favorite (Tiz the Law, Justify, American Pharoah) or a shocking longshot (Ruler on Ice, Tonalist, Da’Tara, Drosselmeyer, Summer Bird). It is good to be prepared for both scenarios, by accepting the favorite could win but having chosen a few longshots to back up your bets.

Because of its placement in the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes often pits tired horses that have run in the Kentucky Derby and/or Preakness against fresh horses that either skipped the Preakness or the entire Triple Crown altogether. Belmont Park has their own prep races so that horses never need to leave Belmont to get ready for the race, which means these horses are live shots to defeat the big names coming out of the Triple Crown. Just make sure the horses are fast enough based on their speed figures.


Playing the Belmont Stakes Odds

The Belmont Stakes is an interesting event, as it has a huge 12-furlong oval track and the course is a tough run as it is on a sandy 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 Belmont betting experience. For those playing the odds at Belmont Park, it’s important to understand that because the track is so big, any race less than 1 1/2 miles will be run around one turn, with the starters beginning on the backstretch of the track, or just on the clubhouse turn in 1 1/4 mile races.

Aside from the track itself, the Belmont Stakes event attracts the rich and famous – the famous race has even seen Queen Elizabeth II in attendance. Models and famous athletes all congregate to Belmont Park to watch, especially if a Triple Crown is on the line.

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:

  • Win
  • Place
  • Show
  • Quinella
  • Exacta
  • Trifecta
  • Superfecta
  • 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 the Belmont Stakes odds betting.

Belmont Stakes Winners


While the Belmont Stakes is very interesting, it’s always great to see Belmont Stakes runners that managed to win all three U.S. horse racing majors – the highly prestigious Triple Crown. Those horses are – in order of most recent – Justify, American Pharoah, Affirmed, Seattle Slew, Secretariat, Citation, Assault, Count Fleet, Whirlaway, War Admiral, Gallant Fox, Omaha, and Sir Barton. The greatest Triple Crown winner of all time is Secretariat in 1973. He set the Belmont Stakes record time at 2:24. 48 years later and the record still stands, which begs the question; will the record ever be broken?

More recently we saw Justify and American Pharoah winning the Triple Crown in 2018 and 2015, respectively. They both hailed from the barn of trainer Bob Baffert, who is the leading active winner of Triple Crown races.

The most recent filly to win the Belmont Stakes was Rags to Riches in 2007. She defeated Curlin, who went on to be a Hall of Fame runner and Horse of the Year. Fillies in the Belmont were common in the old days, but rarely attempted now.
