Early 2017 Belmont Stakes Superfecta Pick

I’m excited about the Belmont Stakes Superfecta. Based on the early odds, Classic Empire should be a huge favorite. Since I’m not using Classic Empire on top, the below superfecta could pay yuge. I’m only spending $80 on my superfecta play. Check out what I’m thinking based on the early odds!

What Is A Superfecta?

A superfecta is the granddaddy of Belmont Stakes exotic bets, forcing you to pick the first four finishers in order, but by boxing your selections, they can finish in any combination. This also allows you to choose more than four runners, for an increased cost, of course.

2017 Belmont Stakes Trifecta Key Horse Picks:  Irish War Cry 8/1, Tapwrit 10/1

Trainer Graham Motion is one of the better horsemen in the United States. He can really get them ready to run. Irish War Cry ran into the worst part of the track during the Kentucky Derby. That’s why he faded. It also didn’t help that he went wide around both turns. The last time Motion put Irish War Cry into a race after a bad race, he easily won the Wood Memorial. Lightning could strike twice.

Tapwrit has all the looks of a Belmont Stakes winner. Tapit sired Tapwrit. Tapit sired Creator who won the 2016 Belmont Stakes. Not only that, but Todd Pletcher, no matter how Always Dreaming performed in the Preakness Stakes, remains one of the Top 2 trainers in the U.S. The other top trainer is Bob Baffert.
Pletcher’s going to have Tapwrit ready to roll.

2017 Belmont Stakes Trifecta Key Horse Place Picks

  • Classic Empire 3/2 – If the 3/2 chalk beats my superfecta wager, so be it. He’s as deserving of a Triple Crown Race winner as any horse I have seen. He dominated the Derby winner in the Preakness Stakes a couple of weeks ago. It wasn’t even close. He pretty much looked Always Dreaming in the eye and laughed at that horse. But, the Belmont is at 1 ½ miles. This guy ran his heart out at Pimlico. I just don’t see how he comes up huge at Big Sandy after running two tough races like the Derby and the Preakness.
  • Irish War Cry 8/1
  • Tapwrit 10/1

2017 Belmont Stakes Trifecta Key Horse Show Picks

  • Classic Empire 3/2
  • Irish War Cry 8/1
  • Tapwrit 10/1
  • Epicharis 12/1 – He’s a must use because his Japanese connections decided to keep him out of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. You only put your horse in a 1 ½ mile race if you really, truly, believe your horse has a shot.   
  • Gormley 15/1 – The man who trained Zenyatta, John Shirreffs, knows what he’s doing. This is a trainer that sits on his horse for 3, 4, even 6 months if he thinks the horse isn’t ready. Shirreffs doesn’t mess around. If Gormley shows up in the starting gate, take him seriously.  
  • Patch 20/1 – Don’t be surprised if Patch is the Pletcher runner that wins the Belmont Stakes on June 10. After jockey Tyler Gafflione realized that there was no way for Patch to get into the Top 4 on Derby Day, he laid off the one-eyed horse. I believe this Union Rags colt has a ton of talent.

2017 Belmont Stakes Trifecta Key Horse Fourth Slot Picks

  • Classic Empire 3/2
  • Lookin At Lee 6/1 – Oh, I know. He could finish third and blow out my superfecta ticket. But, if I’m putting 2 horses in the win slot, I can’t spread in the show slot. I’m hoping he only kicks up to fourth like he did in the Preakness Stakes.
  • Irish War Cry 8/1
  • Senior Investment 10/1 – Will Senior Investment be the bane of my superfecta ticket the way he was the bane of my trifecta ticket for the Preakness Stakes? Probably. But, like Lookin At Lee, I can’t afford to put him into the show slot.  
  • Tapwrit 10/1
  • Epicharis 12/1
  • Gormley 15/1
  • Patch 20/1
