About Belmont Stakes

The Belmont Stakes is usually the longest of the three Triple Crown races. However, in 2020 it will be reduced from its normal 1 ½ mile distance to 1 1/8 miles. That will help trainers and runners manage a revised schedule brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. The prize purse has also been reduced by a third to $1 million. There will be no fans at Belmont Park in New York to watch the 2020 Belmont Stakes, but the race should attract a huge TV audience.

About
Belmont stakes
The finest three-year-olds in America will battle it out for glory when the Belmont Stakes gets underway on Saturday, June 20. The Belmont is normally the final leg of the Triple Crown. However, the coronavirus crisis has turned the racing calendar on its head this year, and the Belmont will actually be the first major race of 2020. The Belmont Stakes is usually the longest of the three Triple Crown races. However, in 2020 it will be reduced from its normal 1 ½ mile distance to 1 1/8 miles. That will help trainers and runners manage a revised schedule brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. The prize purse has also been reduced by a third to $1 million. There will be no fans at Belmont Park in New York to watch the 2020 Belmont Stakes, but the race should attract a huge TV audience.

The 152nd Belmont Stakes has a post time of 6.45pm ET on Saturday, June 20. It is open to three-year-old thoroughbreds. Colts and geldings carry a set weight of 126 pounds, and fillies carry 121 pounds. They will race around the left-handed dirt track at Belmont Park for 1 1/8 miles, and all the leading sportsbooks in the business will offer Belmont Stakes horse odds.
In a typical season, the best three-year-olds battle it out to storm to the top of the Kentucky Derby leaderboard. They earn points by winning key prep races like the Arkansas Derby, the Blue Grass, the Louisiana Derby and the Santa Anita Derby, and the best runners qualify for the Kentucky Derby. The result of the Kentucky Derby determines the Preakness Stakes odds. The Belmont Stakes is held three weeks later, so racebooks and bettors are already familiar with the Belmont Stakes horses.
This year, Belmont Stakes predictions will be tougher, as it runs first. Sportsbooks have therefore taken inspiration from the existing Kentucky Derby leaderboard before releasing the current Belmont Stakes odds. Nadal, Tiz the Law and Charlatan sit at the top of the Kentucky Derby leaderboard, so it is easy to see why they rank among the Belmont Stakes favorites.
Nadal is an unbeaten colt from the Bob Baffert stable. He heads the Kentucky Derby leaderboard after he surged to victory in the second division of the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby on May 2. That race also took place over 1 1/8 miles, which should stand him in good stead for this year’s abbreviated Belmont Stakes. Nadal also won the Grade 2 Rebel Stakes in March.
Charlatan won the first division of the Arkansas Derby, taking him to three wins out of three. He also represents Hall of Fame trainer Baffert, a three-time Belmont winner. Charlatan and Nadal are unbeaten in seven combined starts.
Barclay Tagg’s Tiz the Law has won both starts this year, including the Grade 1 Curlin Florida Derby on March 28. He was bred for the Kentucky Derby: two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Tiznow is his broodmare sire, and he is the son of hot young stallion Constitution. Tiz the Law has proved popular in the horse racing experts’ Belmont Stakes picks thus far, but there will be many quality runners among the Belmont Stakes entries, and it should be a terrific battle.

Tiz the Law, Nadal and Charlatan are the early favorites for the Belmont, but the odds will change in the build-up to the race. Keep checking the Belmont Stakes live odds as the race approaches to see the line changes. The revelation of the final Belmont Stakes lineup, the position draw and the volume of bets going on the various horses to win the Belmont will have an impact on the latest Belmont Stakes odds. The likes of Maxfield, Basin, Sole Volante and Dr Post were initially long shots in the Belmont Stakes betting online, but there is plenty of time for that to change.

You might see 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.
Last year, Tacitus was the 9/5 favorite in the Belmont Stakes odds 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.
Last year, 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 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. A 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. A 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 BetOnline, Bookmaker and Bovada, as they are reliable, trustworthy and guaranteed to pay you any winnings you might earn.

The Belmont Stakes will be held on June 20, 2020, at Belmont Park in New York. It will be the first leg of the Triple Crown series, running before the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes for the first time as a result of schedule changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tiz the Law, Nadal and Charlatan are among the favorites for the Belmont Stakes after impressing so far this year. However, 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.

The 152nd edition of the Belmont Stakes will run at 3pm ET on June 20 at Belmont Park in New York.
