2023 Belmont Stakes | 50th Anniversary of Secretariat
Saturday, June 10 at 6:50 pm ET
Belmont Park, Elmont, NY


Forte will Go off the Favorite but the Odds will Rise above +250

Forte, the 5/2 morning line chalk, will enter the starting gate the favorite, but the odds will drift. Questions surround Forte and the field is much deeper than oddsmakers realize.

Horseplayers have a lot of different ways to go. Also, Forte will have not raced for close to 10 weeks when he breaks from the Belmont starting gate. So the favorite’s odds will drift to +300.


Angel of Empire will Go off Second Choice

The buzz is out on Angel of Empire. The Kentucky Derby favorite after Forte scratched, Angel is fresh and has the closing kick to win the Test of Champions.

Brad Cox gave Angel of Empire a short freshening after the Derby. For sure, Angel goes off the second choice. Don’t be surprised if the Derby’s third place horse doesn’t end up a co-favorite with Forte.


Tapit Trice’s Odds will Rice from a +300 Morning Line to +500

Tapit Trice showed nothing in the Derby. More alarming than that is the works leading up to Belmont Stakes leave much to be desired.

Some horseplayers will jump on Tapit Trice. However, the Belmont will be his fifth race of the year without a real break. So many more horseplayers will go a different direction than back the second morning line choice.


National Treasure will Go off Third Choice at +400

Bob Baffert has is detractors but the greatest trainer in history also has his fans. After Baffert’s National Treasure won the Preakness, the Bob bandwagon got fuller.

No doubt, many horseplayers will study the past performances and conclude that National can wire the Belmont the same way he wired the Preakness. The odds on the Baffert runner will drop from the +500 morning line to +400.


Arcangelo’s Odds will Drop from +800 to +500

Jena Antonucci isn’t a name trainer, which might be the reason Arcangelo is 8-to-1 on the morning line. Form and talent trumps the trainer’s name.

No doubt, horseplayers will jump all over the Peter Pan winner. Closing against soft fractions to beat a front runner of Bishops Bay’s quality doesn’t happen often. Arcangelo will be this year’s Belmont Stakes’ wise guy choice, dropping from +800 odds to +500, maybe even lower, before the gate break.
