About Belmont Stakes

The Belmont Stakes is one of the world’s most prestigious races and it always attracts a phenomenal field of superstar three-year-olds. It typically serves as the final leg of the Triple Crown, following on from the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. In 2020, the Belmont actually became the first leg of the Triple Crown after the coronavirus pandemic turned the season it its head, but it is expected to return to its usual spot in 2021. That would see the 153rd Belmont Stakes held on June 4, 2021. 

About
Belmont stakes
The odds for the 2021 Belmont Stakes will be released once the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes have taken place. Three-year-olds that perform well in those races will be among the favorites to win the Belmont. The Belmont Stakes is the longest of the three Triple Crown races, as it is run over 1 ½ miles at Belmont Park in New York. A horse must find deep reserves of stamina to win the race after a busy spring schedule. It is rare for a horse to win the Triple Crown, but American Pharaoh pulled it off in 2015 and Justify followed suit in 2018. We will keep you updated with Belmont Stakes odds as soon as the sportsbooks release them. 

The leading contenders for the next running of the Belmont Stakes will emerge over the course of the three-year-old season in 2021. Horses that performed well in their two-year-old season in 2020 will garner a great deal of attention. Leading sportsbook Bovada has already named Jackie’s Warrior, Get Her Number, Freedom Fighter, Calibrate, Cazedero, Dr. Schivel and Sittin On Go as the early favorites for Kentucky Derby glory in 2021 after they all impressed in their juvenile seasons. Yet the key contenders will be unearthed in 2021, based on how they fare in a number of important Group 1 races.  

The favorite has won 42% of the time during the history of the Belmont Stakes. Tiz the Law bolstered that trend when he won at morning line odds of 6-5 in 2020, beating a field of nine other runners. Secretariat was the lowest priced winner when he secured victory at odds of just 1-10 back in 1973. Afleet Alex was priced at just 23-20 when he surged to victory in 2005. The next nine favorites failed to win the race, until American Pharoah won at 3-4 in 2015. The next favorite to win was Justify at 4-5 in 2018, and then Tiz the Law became the 64th favorite to win the Belmont in 152 races in 2020. 
If we exclude the 2020 race – which was held before the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness – 19 of the previous 25 Belmont winners had competed in one prior leg of the Triple Crown. It is generally a race that sees late closers struggle. The inside posts have generally been favourable in recent years, although Tiz the Law came out of No. 8 in 2020 and the previous winner, Sir Winston, has a post position of No. 7. Of the current crop, Baffert and Todd Pletcher are the most successful trainers, with three wins apiece, while Nick Zito has two wins under his belt.

You might see horse racing odds on the Belmont Stakes presented in three different formats” fractional, American or decimal. Fractional odds are the most common when it comes to horse racing. The easiest way to explain how to read the odds is to use an example. 
Tacitus was the 9-5 favorite in the Belmont Stakes odds in 2019. That set of fractional odds informed bettors how much they stood to win by betting on him. The number on the left tells you the amount you will win by wagering the amount on the right. If you see odds of 9-5, it tells you that you will win $9 for every $5 you wager. A $5 bet at 9-5 would therefore earn you a $9 profit. You also get your stake back if you place a successful bet on the Belmont Stakes, so your return would have been $14. 
In 2019, Sir Winston was a 12-1 underdog in the morning line odds for the big Belmont race. That told bettors they would win $12 for every $1 they wagered. A $10 bet on Sir Winston at those odds would have netted you $120, whereas a $10 bet on Tacitus would have netted you just $18. In the end, Sir Winston defied the odds to secure a famous victory. 
Fractional odds of 12-1 would be rendered as +1200 in American format. It tells you the profit you stand to earn from a $100 bet if successful. In this case, bet $100, earn $1,200. A fractional price of 12-1 would be rendered as 13.00 in decimal format. Then you simply multiple your stake by that figure to calculate your return. A $10 bet at 13.00 earns you a return of $130 ($120 profit and your $10 stake back). Fractional odds of 9-5 become +180 in American format and 2.80 in decimal format.

You can bet on the Belmont Stakes at hundreds of different betting sites. It is a hugely popular race, and most sportsbooks therefore offer horse racing odds on the Belmont. However, it can be difficult to find a trustworthy, reliable racebook that will treat you fairly and pay you out on time. Check out our list of top sportsbooks to find the best horse racing sportsbooks for Belmont Stakes field and odds. 
Most of our A+ and A rated sportsbooks will offer Belmont Stakes odds and ends, and you can trust them to pay out on time. Many of them will also offer great bonuses, so find your perfect match at SBR before you bet on the Belmont Stakes. Remember that the 2021 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes results will have a huge impact upon the Belmont Stakes odds. 

You can choose from a number of different Belmont Stakes bets after browsing the Belmont Stakes horses and odds. The main types of horse bets include win, place, show, exacta, quinella, trifecta, wheel bets and box bets. A win is a straightforward wager on the horse that will win the race. Check out the Belmont Stakes odds and post positions before placing this wager, which is also known as a single or a straight bet.  
place bet is a wager on a horse finishing either first or second in the Belmont. A show is a wager on a runner finishing either first, second or third. An exacta requires you to specify which horse will win the race and which horse will finish second, in that exact order. The return on this form of Belmont Stakes wagering is decided on a pari-mutuel system, rather than via classic Belmont Stakes odds. A quinella allows you to pick two horses, and they have to finish first and second in any order.  
trifecta involves picking the winner, the runner-up and the third placed horse. You can also opt for a superfecta, which offers the potential for a huge profit if you can successfully predict the winner, runner-up, third placed horse and fourth placed horse. You can also opt for box bets or wheel bets, which allow you to group horses together and place combinations of exactas and trifectas within that box, or wager on a particular horse against the field.


The Belmont Stakes is one of the biggest races of the year and all the leading sportsbooks in the business will offer betting on it. Make sure you stick to our A+ rated sites, such as BetOnlineBookmaker and Bovada, as they are reliable, trustworthy and guaranteed to pay you any winnings you might earn. 

The 153rd Belmont Stakes will be held on June 4, 2021, at Belmont Park in New York. It will be the final leg of the Triple Crown series, running after the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. It formed the first leg in 2020, but it will revert to its usual position in 2021. 

The betting odds for the Belmont Stakes will really take shape after the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes have run. Horses that perform well in those races, and other Group 1 races in 2021, will be among the favorites.  
The odds will move around in the build-up to the big race, so keep checking the line movements at SBR before placing a wager, and then check out the morning line odds on the week of the race. All odds are predictions until the morning line odds are published, and then payouts are determined on a pari-mutuel basis, where the money wagered goes into a pool, the racetrack and racebooks take a cut and the remainder is divided among bettors with winning tickets. 

The 153rd edition of the Belmont Stakes is likely to run at 3pm ET on June 4 at Belmont Park in New York. The official post time will be revealed closer to the event, and we will keep you updated with everything you need to know.

Tiz the Law picked a comfortable victory over Dr Post and Max Player in the 2020 Belmont Stakes. There were no spectators in Belmont Park due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but a large TV audience watched the action unfold. Tap It to Win took an early lead, while Tiz the Law raced in a stalking position a few lengths back, before launching his move on the turn, overtaking the frontrunner at the start of the stretch and going on to land an easy victory. Barclay Tagg became the oldest trainer in the race’s history, aged 82.
