It will be the 141st running of the Belmont Stakes and will be covered by ABC television. Let’s look at some more online sports betting facts regarding Belmont odds.
2009 Belmont Stakes odds will not have a Triple Crown at stake this year. Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby while Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness. 2009 Belmont Stakes odds will take place from Belmont Park in Elmont, New York with a purse of $1 million dollars on the line.
2009 Belmont Stakes odds will definitely have Mine That Bird as one of the favorites, regardless of whether Rachel Alexandra runs or not. Mine That Bird’s sire, Birdstone won in Belmont odds back in 2004. Last year it was Da’ Tara winning in Belmont odds as the heavy online betting favorite Big Brown was pulled up, finishing last.
Two years ago it was Rags to Riches winning in online betting Belmont odds. The 2006 winner was Jazil while Afleet Alex won in 2005. Birdstone’s win came in 2004 while Empire Maker won in 2003. Sarava won in 2002, the highest price winner ever in Belmont Stakes history. Point Given ran away with the Belmont in 2001 while Commendable won in 2000.
2009 Belmont Stakes odds will not be as popular as in 2008 since there is no Triple Crown at stake but they could present nice value. As many as ten horses look to be in the 2009 Belmont Stakes odds field. Rarely does a full field of horses ever run in the Belmont since the race is so long and so tiring. The Belmont limits the field to 15 horses but almost never are there that many horses that are entered. Online sports betting information tells us that sometimes it is tough to find as many as 10 horses that are even capable of going a mile and a half. It used to be that horses were conditioned to run farther but in today’s horse racing world the horses don’t run as often or as far so we may never see a full Belmont field again and we won’t with 2009 Belmont Stakes odds.
The contenders for this year’s Belmont include Mine That Bird, possibly Rachel Alexandra, Dunkirk, Chocolate Candy, Flying Private, Luv Guv, Charitable Man, Summer Bird, Mr. Hot Stuff and Miner’s Escape.
