2016 Belmont Stakes Betting Preview

2016 Belmont Stakes Betting PreviewThis Saturday horse racing enthusiasts will get to see whether Exaggerator, the winner of the 2016 Preakness Stakes will be able to win the 2016 Belmont Stakes at 5:32PM CDT.  The draw for the post positions was held this past Wednesday by the New York Racing Association and Exaggerator will break from Gate 11 as the favorite to win the last race of the Triple Crown.

This year, there will be no Triple Crown Winner as the Nyquist, the winner of the Kentucky Derby finished second during the Preakness Stakes behind Exaggerator and will not be running in the Belmont due to an high white-cell count in his blood after the Preakness.

For those who are thinking about placing a bet on the Belmont Stakes at their favorite online sportsbook, you should consider Stradivari as a possible option to win or to place with a 501 odds to win according to BetOnline.ag.

Of course, if you want to bet on the favorite then Exaggerator has the best odds to win with a 9-5 odds to win.  This 3 year old colt trained by non-other than Kith Desormeaux and ridden by Kent Desormeaux giving him a 35% chance of winning the Belmont Stakes.

The Belmont Stakes is a race that is slightly longer than the preceding races in the Triple Crown at 1.5 miles and of all of the horses that began in the Kentucky Derby, only Lani and Exaggerator will have run all three races.
