Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird is one horse that will have an impact on Belmont odds but others like Rachel Alexandra and Charitable Man could also make a mark. Let’s take a look at some possible contenders in 2009 Belmont Stakes odds.
2009 Belmont Stakes odds at the online sportsbook would favor the filly Rachel Alexandra if she is entered in the race. She could be come the first filly to ever win two legs of the Triple Crown is she wins in 2009 Belmont Stakes odds. She came out of the Preakness in good shape and she might be entered in Belmont odds. “I’m very pleased with her,” trainer Steve Asmussen said, “She’s acting well, and everything checked out this morning. She’s very special.” A total of three fillies have won in Belmont odds, the last of which was Rags to Riches just two years ago.
Regardless of whether Rachel Alexandra is entered in 2009 Belmont Stakes odds there is no question that Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird will be in the field. He finished a fast closing second in the Preakness. “I was happy with his effort,” the trainer Chip Woolley said. “He laid it all on the line but just didn’t have enough to get there. I just wish we had a little better trip.” Mine That Bird may be a better choice in 2009 Belmont Stakes odds at the sportsbook because of the added distance. “The Belmont distance is definitely in our favor,” Woolley said. “There won’t be as many horses entered, which will relieve some of the traffic problems. He can cruise around there and maybe have to make a shorter run. Before coming here, I told everyone the Belmont was the race I was really looking forward to.”
