Will Forte's latest reign at the top of the odds board finally bear fruit? Or will National Treasure add a Belmont Stakes win to an impressive 2023 showing that includes a thrilling victory at the Preakness? James Bisson looks at the most up-to-date odds for the 2023 Belmont Stakes.
There might not be history at stake by the time the 2024 Belmont Stakes rolls around, but horse racing betting sites know that the final leg of U.S. horse racing's most famous triumvirate will still draw plenty of wagering interest.
The final jewel of the U.S. thoroughbred horse racing Triple Crown becomes the hottest thing going when one horse has won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes; it has happened 36 times, most recently in 2018 when Justify completed the Triple Crown.
That said, it's far more common for there to be separate Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winners, leaving the Belmont Stakes without the added drama of a Triple Crown chase. That's what happened in 2023, when Arcangelo prevailed from the No. 3 hole at 8-to-1 odds.
To help you make your Belmont Stakes picks, we're looking at the best Belmont Stakes odds among the top contenders for the final leg of the Triple Crown (odds via our best horse racing betting sites).
