There is no question that Miner’s Escape is a longshot in Belmont Stakes betting but there are a few things to like about the horse.
Belmont Stakes odds information tells us that Miner’s Escape was never better than 4th in his three starts as a 2-year old. Earlier this year he broke his maiden at Gulfstream Park and then went on to win the Federico Tesio Stakes at Pimlico on Kentucky Derby day.
Miner’s Escape’s sire is Mineshaft who was the 2003 Horse of the Year. Mineshaft has sired seven stakes winners including Casino Drive and Cool Coal Man. Miner’s Escape’s dam is Novel who was unraced but both of her foals have been winners.
In the Frederico Tesio Stakes at Pimlico, Miner’s Escape was coupled with Toby the Coal Man as an entry for Nick Zito. Since Zito trains Miner’s Escape he just can’t be automatically thrown out in Belmont Stakes odds. Zito won last year’s race with Da’ Tara at big Belmont Stakes betting odds and in 2004 he won with Birdstone in Belmont Stakes odds. He has had a total of 20 horses in Belmont Stakes odds. In addition to the two wins in Belmont Stakes odds he has finished second six times and third three times. “We’ve done well in the Belmont, been consistent, so why not,” Zito said, “I don’t have Secretariat with these two (Brave Victory is the other), but I don’t have to. You never know. Mine That Bird is definitely the horse to beat, no one can say he’s not.” It is also possible that Nowhere to hide could join Miner’s Escape and Brave Victory in Belmont Stakes odds.
