The horse finished fifth in the Kentucky Derby but may be better suited in Belmont Stakes betting. Here is a look at the chances of Chocolate Candy in Belmont Stakes odds.
Belmont Stakes odds at the online sportsbook could have Chocolate Candy as the third choice on Saturday, June 6th behind Mine That Bird and Charitable Man. The horse has the nation’s best jockey in Garrett Gomez and he seems to have the pedigree to go a mile and a half in Belmont Stakes odds. Chocolate Candy has a trainer in Jerry Hollendorfer who knows how to win, but mainly in Northern California. He has won more than 5,000 races in his career but most of them came on the Northern California circuit. Hollendorfer hasn’t done much in Triple Crown races in his career or in Belmont Stakes odds. His best finish has been a 5th in the Derby.
The pedigree of Chocolate Candy looks solid in Belmont Stakes odds. Belmont Stakes odds information shows that the sire is Candy Ride who won all six of his career races and was the 2003 champion miler in Argentina. Belmont Stakes betting information shows that the dam is Crownette who has seen all of her foals win races. Chocolate Candy has the second best dosage index number in the race at 2.08 which should point him to having no trouble with the mile and a half in Belmont Stakes odds.
Belmont Stakes odds information tells us that last year Chocolate Candy won the Real Quiet Stakes and was 3rd in the Cash Call Futurity at Hollywood Park. He won the California Derby at Golden Gate for his 3-year-old debut and won the El Camino Real Derby. He was second to Pioneerof the Nile in the Santa Anita Derby before finishing 5th in the Kentucky Derby.
Hollendorfer shipped Chocolate Candy into Belmont early and has been pleased so far. “It was suggested to us to train over at Belmont for a while before you run,” said Hollendorfer. “I didn’t want to leave him on the road that long, but it’s worked out OK so far. He’s been very happy here.”
Horse players might want to take a shot with Chocolate Candy in Belmont Stakes odds at the online sportsbook. The horse has the pedigree, jockey and trainer to definitely contend in Belmont Stakes odds at the sports book.
