2013 Belmont Stakes Betting

The Belmont Stakes betting always becomes more exciting when a horse enters the race still with an opportunity to win the Triple Crown, having won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes beforehand. The prospect of a Triple Crown winner usually raises the profile of the race and generates far more publicity. This of course stimulates more interest in the betting market and can radically alter the Belmont Stakes odds.

The Antepost odds for the Belmont Stakes usually reflect the performances of the runners in the both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, plus the many trial races that are run all over the USA in the preceding weeks of the race. However, no matter who wins past winners of the Preakness Stakes have a poor record in the Belmont, with Point Given being the last horse to win both races in 2001.

Betting markets of course are designed to make profit for bookmakers but at the same time they do provide reasonable guidelines to the prospects of the Belmont Stakes runners as well as the leading contenders for the race. It is therefore worth noting those horses with good performance experience over the race distance of 1½ miles.

We shall be assisting readers in this as well by giving them important details of how the start draw can affect the race, the significance of the jockey bookings, as well as the form of each horse in our Belmont Stakes form guide. We also offer a few FREE pointers in our Belmont Stakes tips page. As always in a race like this there will be several Belmont Stakes FREE Bet offers available for race punters to utilise on any available bet.
