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.

All Odds To Win The 2013 Triple Crown Below

Beating the Kentucky Derby odds, the Preakness Stakes odds, and the Belmont Stakes odds in the same year has been virtually impossible. In fact, for the better part of the last 3.5 decades, there hasn’t been a horse that has pulled off the remarkable feat. Now, one horse will have a chance to put his name amongst all of the fantastic horses in the history of the sport that have won the three biggest races of the year in succession, if he can just figure out how to tame the 1 1/2 mile run at the Belmont Stakes in three weeks.

Here is a full list of horses that have won the Triple Crown…

Full List Of Triple Crown Winners
1978 – Affirmed
1977 – Seattle Slew
1973 – Secretariat
1948 – Citation
1946 – Assault
1943 – Count Fleet
1941 – Whirlaway
1937 – War Admiral
1935 – Omaha
1930 – Gallant Fox
1919 – Sir Barton

Every single year, the horse that beats the Kentucky Derby odds have a chance to get the job done to become the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978. This year, there really only seem to be two horses that are given any chance to win the Triple Crown.

The first is Orb. The fact that this horse is only 20 to 1 to win the Triple Crown are probably some pretty nice odds. Figure if Orb goes on to win the Kentucky Derby at 4 to 1, he will probably be right around an odds on favorite to win the Preakness Stakes and certainly be an odds on favorite if he ultimately wins both of the first two legs of the Triple Crown. Just doing the simple math proves that if you like Orb, you should be betting on him to win the Triple Crown, perhaps even more so than you are betting on him just to win the Kentucky Derby.

The other logical horse to back is Verrazano. This is a horse that has only run four times in his entire career, but at least all four of those races came as a three-year old. Verrazano is an undefeated horse, and you have to love that about him. Interestingly enough, of all of the horses in the Kentucky Derby field, the one that is the favorite to win the Triple Crown is Verrazano. The logic must be that this is an undefeated horse, and it is very unlikely that Orb comes to the Preakness Stakes if this race is lost. There is a good chance that Verrazano will go to the Preakness Stakes if he doesn’t win the Derby.

Full List Of Triple Crown Losers
2008 – Big Brown
2004 – Smarty Jones
2003 – Funny Cide
2002 – War Emblem
1999 – Charismatic
1998 – Real Quiet
1997 – Silver Charm
1989 – Sunday Silence
1987 – Alysheba
1981 – Pleasant Colony
1979 – Spectacular Bid
1971 – Canonero II
1969 – Majestic Prince
1968 – Forward Pass
1966 – Kauai King
1964 – Northern Dancer
1961 – Carry Back
1958 – Tim Tam
1944 – Pensive
1936 – Bold Venture
1932 – Burgoo King

However, we know that these aren’t the only two horses that have a shot at claiming the Run for the Roses. It is going to take a horse that has the speed and the distance to be able to win the last two legs of the Triple Crown, and that’s something that is going to be awfully difficult to find. Perhaps a colt like Java’s War might be in good shape. He’s 185 to 1 to be able to get the job done, and there is no doubt that if he finds a way to win the 1 1/4 mile race, he will once again be favored at the Preakness Stakes. This is the type of horse that has a really tough time winning the Belmont Stakes, though. We know that Java’s War is going to try to win any race that he is in from behind, as he puts in his best work in the final quarter mile of any run that he has.

And then of course, there is the other possibility that there won’t be a Triple Crown winner. If you think that there is any horse that has a shot at doing it, you can get 7 to 1 odds, but in all likelihood, this will be another year without a Triple Crown triumph. When you consider the fact that there are so many more quality horses now than there were 25 years ago, it’s no wonder why it is so difficult to win the Triple Crown. Add in the fact that there have only been 11 three-year old colts to ever win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes, and it goes without saying that the best bet might be taking the -1100 that a horse won’t win all three legs of the Triple Crown.
