Triple Crown Betting: If you’re looking for the best advice for horse racing gambling, you’ve certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook we’re previewing the Belmont Stakes, which takes place from June 9th through June 11th, 2016 at Belmont Park in Belmont, New York, featuring Nyquist, Mohaymen, Mor Spirit and Gun Runner.
Last year, American Pharoah went on an unforgettable run in the Triple Crown. All eyes were on him as he went to the final leg at the Belmont Stakes and American Pharoah was able to pull off the improbable by winning that race as well. That was the first Triple Crown winner in decades and it would be very exciting if another horse can follow in those footsteps. We’ll know soon enough as the Belmont Stakes will be held on June 11th, 2016, at Belmont Park in Belmont, New York. If any horse wins the first two legs at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness they will likely be favored to capture this race, although doing so on a longer course is easier said than done. That is something to remember when the odds are released as different horses perform better at different distances in horse racing gambling.
The Belmont Stakes is the third and final leg of the Triple Crown, preceded by the the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. At 1.5 miles in length, this race is by far the longest of all three Triple Crown races. It’s also the oldest event of the three esteemed races, debuting in 1867. The field at the Belmont Stakes is limited to 16 horses. American Pharoah came into the 2015 Belmont Stakes as the heavy favorite and having already won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. He captured a wire-to-wire victory at Belmont to become the twelfth horse in history to win the American Triple Crown.
American Pharaoh was ridden by experienced jockey Victor Espinoza throughout the Triple Crown last year in horse racing gambling. If he is on one of the horses at the Belmont Stakes that could be a clue that the horse is one of the favorites. The odds will get easier to decipher after the first two races but there have been a few horses that have stood out early in the year.
Nyquist has captured several Grade 1 and Grade 2 wins against good competition and could be in the mix. Mohaymen is another one that has turned some heads and these two could be the favorites as long as they both perform well in the first two legs. There is less certainty beyond them, but horses like Gun Runner, Mor Spirit and Swipe could also be contenders.
Few knew American Pharoah would be a Triple Crown winner before the Kentucky Derby started, but by the time the Belmont Stakes came around it was the prohibitive favorite and pulled through with the convincing victory. The challenge to the horses this year will be following in those footsteps, and hopefully there is a new horse in the Triple Crown Race at the Belmont Stakes in June in horse racing gambling.
Horse Racing Quick Pick: Mohaymen looks strong and could come away with the victory.
