2024 Belmont Stakes Betting Picks

The final Triple Crown race of the season takes place on Saturday with the Belmont Stakes. Known as “The Test of the Champion” the race will be held at the famed Saratoga Race Course instead of Belmont Park this year due to renovations. Saratoga is an iconic horse racing venue and home of the Travers Stakes, one of the most prestigious races on the annual calendar. Normally, the Belmont Stakes is the longest race of the Triple Crown schedule at 1.5 miles. But because of the change in venue, the 2024 Belmont Stakes will be 1.25 miles instead.

Let’s look at top Belmont Stakes Betting favorites for Saturday, June 8, 2024.

2024 Belmont Stakes Bookmaker Overview

The Triple Crown will not be at stake on Saturday. Mustic Dan won the 2024 Kentucky Derby while Seize the Grey won the 2024 Preakness Stakes. Still, a top field is listed on the board for a race that is classified as one of the American Classics, along with the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.

Trainer: Ken McPeek

Jockey: Brian Hernandez Jr.

Owner: Lance Gasaway, 4 G Racing & Daniel Hemby.

Mystic Dan goes back to the 1 ¼-mile Kentucky Derby distance, winning the Run for the Roses with a perfect ground-saving trip and a 100 Beyer Speed Figure. At the 1 3/16-mile Preakness distance, Mystik Dan was unable to run down pace-setter Seize the Grey, and now looks to turn in a third big effort in five weeks, with Seize the Gey and Derby runner-up Sierra Leone in the field.


Trainer: D. Wayne Lukas

Jockey: Jamie Torres

Owner: MyRaceHorse

Seize The Grey, the Preakness winner is a contender that’s shown incredible improvement, going wire-to-wire in the Preakness to win by two lengths and picked up a 100 Beyer Speed Figure. That performance came after the colt picked up a first stakes win in the Grade 2 Pat Day Mile on Derby Day, the first graded stakes win of Torres' career, after running seventh in the Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes.

Sierra Leone had a great run in the Kentucky Derby, rallying from 18th to finish second by a nose to Mystik Dan, part of a three-horse blanket finish with Forever Young, credited with a 100 Beyer Speed Figure. A $2.3-million yearling purchase, Sierra Leone came from way back to win the Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on April 6, after winning the Grade 2 Risen Star at Fair Grounds.


Trainer: Mike Maker

Jockey: TBA

Owners: Paradise Farms, David Staudacher

The Wine Steward had the lead in the stretch in the Grade 3 Peter Pan at Aqueduct, but was unable to hold off Antiquairan, finishing second by ¾-length. It was the latest in a series of near misses that resulted in second place finishes after challenging late, including in the Grade 3 Lexington Stakes and the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity, both at Keeneland.


Trainer: Whit Beckman

Jockey: Ben Curtis

Owner: Ribble Farms

Honor Marie was last in the Kentucky Derby after six furlongs, before rallying for a respectable eighth-place finish at 14-1. Ran second behind Catching Freedom in the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby at Fair Grounds on March 23, having won the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs four months earlier.
