Belmont Stakes odds on June 7th are going to have Big Brown heavily favored as the horse attempts to become only the 12th Triple Crown winner.
If you are considering a wager on Big Brown in Belmont Stakes betting you might want to look at recent Belmont Stakes odds history.
Belmont Stakes odds history has shown that Triple Crown hopefuls don’t do very well in the Belmont Stakes. Even horses that looked like sure winners in Belmont Stakes odds have gone down in flames. Big Brown sure looks great in Belmont Stakes betting but so have quite a few other horses. Recently there have been horses that have looked just as good as Big Brown or better that have lost in Belmont Stakes betting.
In 2002 it was almost a given that the Triple Crown drought was going to end. War Emblem had so dominated the competition that his Belmont Stakes odds were very low. What happened in the Belmont though is that he stumbled out of the gate and never recovered. 70-1 longshot Sarava ended up winning the race. Sarava was the biggest longshot in Belmont Stakes odds history that ended up winning the race. War Emblem was a front-running horse and the stumble cost him the race in Belmont Stakes odds.
In 1987 it was a given that Alysheba would win the Triple Crown and be victorious in Belmont Stakes odds. The horse had already taken care of Bet Twice in both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. Alysheba got turned around in the stretch though and ended up losing to Bet Twice in Belmont Stakes odds. Eleven years later it looked like Real Quiet would win in Belmont Stakes betting but a nice lead evaporated in the stretch and Real Quiet lost by a nose to Victory Gallop. The jockey on Real Quiet was Kent Desormeaux. He will try and avoid what happened to Real Quiet in 1998 Belmont Stakes odds with the Triple Crown favorite Big Brown. The next year was the year that definitely should have ended the Triple Crown drought. Charismatic was not the most powerful horse but he was a good closer and he had the Belmont won in Belmont Stakes odds only to break his leg in the stretch and miss Triple Crown glory.
