Belmont Stakes Betting Favorite To Beat Justify – Hofburg +450
Hofburg is the closest challenger to Justify at the Belmont after Audible was pulled. He is listed as the second favorite to win the final race of the Triple Crown.
Belmont Stakes Smart Pick To Beat Justify – Bravazo +800
Bravazo is trained by the legendary D. Wayne Lukas. The colt finished eighth at Louisiana Derby and a disappointing sixth at the Kentucky Derby. But Bravazo was a close second finisher to Justify at the Preakness. Does he have enough in the tank to beat the Belmont favorite?
Belmont Stakes Long Shot Pick – Blended Citizen +1600
He had a great race last time out with a 1½-length victory in the Grade 3 Peter Pan at Belmont Park on May 12th.
Blended Citizen was an also-eligible in the Derby this year. He failed to draw in that previous Friday when the full draw of twenty held strong until post time. The Belmont Stakes will be the 11th race for the colt.
