Which Belmont Stakes Horses are considered to be contenders for the next race in 2020? 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.

This year will mark the first time that the Belmont Stakes will be the first Triple Crown race. The race has been rescheduled to Saturday, June 20th and all eyes will be on the horses running the first leg of the Triple Crown.

The Best* Belmont Stakes Horses to Bet On 2020

Belmont Stakes contenders are each considered to be in their peak form. The race is the final piece in the Triple Crown puzzle. This is the title given to three-year-old Thoroughbred horses who manage to win the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.

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.

This year will be totally different however, since the race will for the first time be first leg of the Triple Crown. We therefore have no direct Triple Crown races to look to when assessing the performances of the runners.

Preliminary line-up for the Belmont Stakes 2020:

  • Tiz the Law
  • Tap It To Win
  • Mischevious Alex
  • Nadal
  • Charlatan
  • Basin
  • Sole Volante
  • Shivaree
  • Dr Post
  • Max Player
  • Ny Traffic
  • Modernist
  • Farmington Road

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 2020

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.

Belmont Stakes Winners 2019

As usual, the race was packed with excitement. When it came to Belmont runners, all eyes were turned towards War of Will and Tacitus. Trained by Mark Casse, War of Will had previously won the Preakness, which made him the biggest favourite among Belmont Stakes horses. Both of the Belmont runners did well early in the race. However, by the end of the race, Sir Winston was the one to take the lead and take the win.

Sir Winston is, in fact, also trained by Mark Casse. However, being in the shadow or War of Will, Sir Winston was not considered to be among the top Belmont picks. Instead, he was often considered to be “the other” horse trained by Casse. And what a magnificent way to prove everyone wrong.

Ultimately, War of Will finished nine, seemingly worn out by his performance at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. This meant that Mark Casse ended the Triple Crown season bagging two wins. Incidentally, Sir Winston was the one to bring Casse his first-ever Belmont Stakes win.

So, this is how all the Belmont Stakes horses placed in the 2019 race. We will also include the Belmont Stakes payouts for each of the placed.

  1. Sir Winston, Mark Casse ($800,000)
  2. Tacitus, Bill Mott ($300,000)
  3. Joevia, Gregg Stasco ($165,000)
  4. Tax, Danny Gargan ($90,000)
  5. Master Fencer, Koichi Tsunoda ($45,000)
  6. Spinoff, Todd Pletcher
  7. Everfast, Dale Romans
  8. Intrepid Heart, Todd Pletcher
  9. War of Will, Mark Casse
  10. Bourbon War, Mark Hennig
