The History of Betting on Horse Race Winners at the Belmont Stakes

Betting on Horse Races: Belmont Stakes PicksThe Belmont Stakes is a make or break race and therefore very famous for those who enjoy betting on horse race winners. If a horse manages to win the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, it still has to win the Belmont to claim the US Triple Crown. Of the twenty six horses that have come into the Belmont eligible to win the Triple Crown, only eleven could go on to win the Belmont Stakes.

People who are familiar with betting on horse race winners know the Belmont Stakes as the most demanding of all the Triple Crown races. Horses with wins in the other two Triple Crown races come into the Belmont with immense pressure to win it. In fact, not one horse has managed to win the Triple Crown since 1978, even though many have come tantalizingly close. For handicappers and racing aficionados who are used to betting on horse races, the Belmont Stakes can be nail biting.
