There will not be a Triple Crown on the line in Belmont odds since Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby while Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness. Let’s look at the possible newcomers in Belmont Stakes odds.
Belmont Stakes odds will see some new horses that did not race in the Preakness. Dunkirk and Chocolate Candy, who both raced in the Derby, will be entered in Belmont Stakes odds. Dunkirk was the second betting choice in the Derby at 5-1 but finished a poor 11th. Trainer Todd Pletcher has said he has come back from that poor finish well though and is ready for Belmont odds. "I didn't think I needed to gauge anything, but it was nice to see him go out there and breeze well," Pletcher said. "He was against the bridle, doing it very easily. He looks like he's in form."
Chocolate Candy finished fifth in the Kentucky Derby but the added distance of the Belmont may help him in Belmont Stakes odds at the online sportsbook. He could also get Garrett Gomez in the irons which might also help his chances in Belmont odds. "We're particularly happy with the way he's handling Belmont racetrack," trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said. "We're optimistic that he's doing very well."
Another horse to watch in Belmont Stakes odds at the sportsbook could be Peter Pan winner Charitable Man. Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said that the horse could be pointed to Belmont Stakes odds. "It is probably the thing to do," "He's a fresh horse, he's a very nice horse, and will get the distance. If we wait until the Dwyer [July 4], you never know what might happen if a Quality Road shows up, or a Regal Ransom shows up, or others show up."
Other newcomers in Belmont Stakes odds at the online sportsbook could include Miner’s Escape, Mr. Hot Stuff and Summer Bird. Already in the Belmont Stakes odds field is Derby winner Mine That Bird. The status of Rachel Alexandra is up in the air for Belmont Stakes odds. It is possible that Flying Private and Luv Gov could also be on the Belmont odds board at the sportsbook.
Newcomers can sometimes be the way to go in Belmont Stakes odds. Horses that raced in both the Derby and Preakness can be worn out for Belmont Stakes odds since racing three times in a short period of time is difficult.
