Last Updated 58 seconds ago | Commercial content | 18+

Which Belmont Stakes Horses are considered to be contenders for the next race in 2021? Well, you’ve come to the right place, as we’ll reveal our top Belmont picks and point you towards the favourites.

There is much at stake in winning the prestigious Triple Crown. With the Belmont race track being the last of the three races, it is always exciting to look at the participating horses. As only a handful of horses who have managed to win it, everyone is on the lookout for the next star horse.

For the first time, the Triple Crown took a lead as the first race at the Belmont Stakes. Tagg’s Tiz the Law won the Belmont Stakes 2020, as the first New-York bred horse since the 80s.

As the last leg in the coveted Triple Crown series, following on quickly from the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, the Belmont Stakes is the race in which potential all-time greats are crowned.

While the best three-year-olds in the country are considered to be at their peak for the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs, in New York, they are having their third Grade 1 run. Just five weeks over a gruelling mile-and-a-half around Big Sandy, this is as much of a slog as anything else.

While 13 horses have won the Triple Crown, many more have faltered at the final hurdle at Belmont Park. It has led to it being christened “The Graveyard of Champions”. We hope to see someone add their name to the list of greats alongside Secretariat and American Pharoah.

In fact, the only one of Belmont Stakes entries with a direct ticket for the competition is the horse which manages to win the first races. This leaves the remaining 11 places to the horses which have gathered enough points from the competitions leading up until the race.

The selection is tough but it also ensures that the race one of the most exciting races of the season. To add additional fuel to the excitement, Belmont Stakes entries cannot be older than 3. So, many of the Belmont Stakes Horses will only have a single chance to participate.

It’s easy to see why the event generates a lot of betting interest. Punters from all over the world are waiting with anticipation to see if this will be the year a horse wins the Triple Crown. They are also hoping to get a portion of Belmont Stakes payouts.

 Belmont Stakes 2020 finishing order:

  • Tiz the Law
  • Dr Post
  • Max Player
  • Pneumatic
  • Tap It to Win
  • Sole Volante
  • Modernist
  • Farmington Road
  • Fore Left
  • Jungle Runner

At this point in time, however, there is still limited information on the participating Belmont Stakes Horses. We can, however, make reasonable predictions, based on the contenders’ current performance. But first, we’ll take a look at what happened last year at the Belmont race track.

Belmont Stakes Predictions 2021

Since it will be a while before we know which Belmont Stakes horses are going to be in the lineup, at this point we can only make informed guesses. There are certain Belmont Stakes contenders which have so far stood out. Some of them even have the potential to repeat the unbelievable Secretariat Belmont Stakes success.

As you might know, Secretariat is a legend of the sport who not only managed to win the Triple Crown, he is also an undefeated record holder. The horse has set a record in all three races. What’s amazing is the fact that the record has remained unbroken for more than four decades. So which one of the Belmont Stakes Horses could come close to Secretariat Belmont Stakes Record?

Tiz the Law

Well, for starters, there is Tiz the Law. The two-year-old has recently impressed with his incredible performance at the Champagne Stakes (Grade 1). The track was obviously fit him well, and since Champagne Stakes takes place at Belmont Park at the Belmont Stakes race track.

Maxfield

Godolphin’s Maxfield, trained by Brendan Walsh, will unfortunately not run. His recent victory at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (Grade 1) was a very encouraging sign. However, connections acknowledged there is a lot of work ahead, but he is for sure a horse to pay attention to and a trip to Belmont this year was scratched from the calendar.

Green Light Go

Finally, the third pick in our list of Belmont Stakes Horses is Green Light Go. Trained by James A. Jerkens, the horse has shown stellar performance this season, with wins at Bel MSW and at Saratoga Special. Coming into 2020, we will be looking closely at the two-year-old’s performance. Hopefully, we will see him in the Belmont Stakes lineup.

One thing is for sure, each of the contenders so far has had excellent performance. We’ll see if that is enough for a Triple Crown.
