Oxbow Preakness StakesWithout a Triple Crown prospect waiting in the wings, there is no overwhelming favorite on the Belmont Stakes odds. Orb (Odds To Win Belmont Stakes: 3 to 1 at BetOnline Sportsbook) is the most likely horse that could go on and take a second leg of the Triple Crown. Of course, Orb was the horse that won the Kentucky Derby, and he was the overwhelming favorite to win the Preakness. He had a terrible run at Pimlico though, and he was boxed out of any real chance to ultimately claim the second leg of the Triple Crown. Orb though, is probably still the best three-year old horse in the world right now, and unlike at the Preakness, where we weren’t overly wild over his horse racing odds, we think that this is a very respectable price at 3 to 1. The Florida Derby and Kentucky Derby winner could very well add the Belmont Stakes to his resume as well. Orb is going to go out of the very solid No. 5 post. Posts don’t matter nearly as much in the Belmont as they do in the other races in the Triple Crown, but at least this way, there is no excuse for Jockey Joel Rosario to get his colt pinned in along the rail like he did at the Preakness.

Horse Racing BettingIt’s not all that often that we see a Kentucky Derby winner and a Preakness Stakes winner running up against each other in the Belmont Stakes, but that’s exactly what we have this year. Oxbow (2013 Belmont Stakes Race Odds: 13 to 2 at BetOnline Sportsbook) went wire to wire at the Preakness Stakes in a truly amazing run in a truly unique situation. Jockey Gary Stevens, one of the oldest men to ever get onto a horse in a Triple Crown race, did a fantastic job getting Oxbow to the front of the pack at the Preakness, and he was really never challenged. This is going to be a fantastic challenge for Oxbow though, as few probably thought that he could actually win the second leg of the Triple Crown, let alone to run in the third leg at 1 1/2 mile. Does Stevens have one more magical run in him? We don’t like his odds, but we do definitely think that Oxbow is a lot better than our original projections from the Derby and the Preakness.

Horse Racing OddsThe most interesting horse that is in this field in our eyes is Vyjack (Belmont Stakes Betting Lines: 25 to 1 at 5Dimes Sportsbook). Vyjack had an absolutely atrocious run in the Kentucky Derby, finishing 18th amongst the 19 horses. As a result, most assume that he isn’t going to be able to run against the big boys in a Grade 1 race. We aren’t so sure though, whether Vyjack was just a victim of 1) the extended field and 2) Mother Nature taking over and making the track at Churchill Downs sloppy as could be. Vyjack won each of the first three races of his career, and he was competitive in the Wood Memorial. In spite of the fact that Oxbow and Orb are both in this race, there aren’t a heck of a lot of other horses that scare us, and the field is nowhere near as good as the one was at the Derby. If Vyjack gets off to a good start in this 1 1/2 mile circuit and can cover the distance, he might be the horse that surprises all.

If you’re a strong proponent of betting on some history happening at the Belmont, the horse you want to bet on is Unlimited Budget (Belmont Stakes Odds: 10 to 1 at BetOnline Sportsbook). Not only would this filly be just the fourth filly (and the second in the last 108 years) to win the Belmont Stakes, but if she wins, Jockey Rosie Napravnik would become just the second female jockey to ever win a Triple Crown race. Don’t just discount Unlimited Budget because of the fact that she is a she. Yes, she only finished third at the Kentucky Oaks earlier this year, but she ran against what might have been a more competitive field at Churchill Downs than when the boys ran against each other. Trainer Todd Pletcher is taking a big chance by running Unlimited Budget “The Test of Champions” against the colts instead of against the fillies. We’ll have to see how it pans out. There won’t be a tougher horse to handicap here than Unlimited Budget.
