Triple Crown Betting Factors at SBG Global Sports Betting
Since there have only been 11 horses that have ever won in Triple Crown wagering in all three races, that tells us that winning the Triple Crown is never a fluke. What factors are important to look for in identifying at Triple Crown betting winner?
Triple Crown betting factor number one to look at is stalking speed. You want a horse that has enough speed to stay with the pace. Rarely does a winning horse come from way back to win in Triple Crown betting. Sir Barton, War Admiral and Count Fleet won the Kentucky Derby in wire-to-wire fashion. Citation and Seattle Slew were second early on while Affirmed (the last Triple Crown winner) was third early in the Derby. The Preakness the speed shows up even more in Triple Crown betting. Sir Barton, War Admiral, Count Fleet, Citation, Seattle Slew and Affirmed were first or second at every call during the Triple Crown betting Preakness race. Secretariat was sometimes slow early but then turned it on and crushed all opponents. That is really what it takes to win a Triple Crown. It takes a dominant horse. Early speed is not essential but stalking speed is in Triple Crown wagering.
As you consider other Triple Crown betting factors you want to remember that stalking speed is also important in the Belmont. Many Triple Crown betting handicappers forget all about speed in the grueling Belmont but what they should remember is that closers almost never win this race. A horse has to have taken the lead or be in a close stalking position well before the stretch run if they want to win the Belmont in Triple Crown wagering. Triple Crown betting handicapping must include stalking speed, even in the Belmont.
You also want to remember that Triple Crown betting handicapping the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont should be done independently. Most of the time you won’t have a horse going for the Triple Crown so you must do your Triple Crown wagering on a race by race basis. Look at each race separately and consider the leading contenders in Triple Crown betting based on your handicapping of the individual races, not the overall Triple Crown.
