Belmont Stakes Tips & Betting Predictions

The Belmont Stakes is the final leg of the Triple Crown, which includes the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.

Often the most exciting due to a potential Triple Crown winner, the Belmont Stakes attracts a huge New York crowd to watch the best three-year-old middle-distance thoroughbreds in the US.

We will have tips for the 2019 Belmont Stakes when the field is released.

2018 Belmont Stakes result

Justify became the second horse in four years to win the Belmont Stakes and Triple Crown for trainer Bob Baffert.

The China Horse Club-owned colt went straight to the front and had a stablemate outside it to block any challengers. That left Justify out in front by itself and he was never headed in the run to the line.

Jockey Mike Smith was overcome with emotion and it was the result bettors were hoping for. Justify close off as the 3/5 favourite after touching 9/10 earlier in the betting.
