A lot of things can happen in three weeks as we approach the Belmont Stakes, in fact, a lot of things can happen in a New York minute, but sports betting runners are starting to make plans to run in the third jewel of the Triple Crown as we speak.

Knowing D. Wayne Lukas’ style, he will in all likelihood bring back Oxbow for another shot at glory. The Preakness winner and the Preakness beaten chalk Orb both left Pimlico on Sunday heading to their respective bases.

Oxbow will bed down at Churhill while Orb will move to Belmont.

It was 13 years since Lukas won a Triple Crown race and he had lost with 31 starters before the success on Saturday. The conditioner has always been found of the spotlight and if the horse stays healthy, he’ll be back in the Big Apple.

Orb’s trainer Shug McGaughey will use a wait and see attitude and watch for his star to tell him where to run next. He came out of the race fine but his trainer wants to see how he responds. He will want to see him bounce back, see that he is sound and has his energy level.

McGaughey has been around the betting sites game forever and he knows the ebb and flow of the sport. If the runner stays healthy, he will likely give the go ahead to run in the Belmont Stakes.

Orb’s owners as legends in the New York industry and both will revel in the idea to run in the Belmont Stakes.

Itsmyluckyday, a solid second in the Preakness, is possible for the Belmont but he may also wait until the Haskell at Monmouth Park, where he is based.

The Belmont Stakes might also lure Revolutionary, Golden Soul, Code West and maybe Dreaming of Julia and Mylute among the possible entrants.

Mylute, ridden by Rosie Napravnik, was nearly 7 lengths clear of the fourth finisher in the Preakness. Orb finished a half-length in front of Goldencents, who may be more comfortable with a little rest back in California.

Dreaming of Julia would be an interesting new shooter. The daughter of A. P. Indy  is 4 for 7 lifetime, was troubled in her last effort in the Kentucky Oaks, but still was inching toward the winner late.

Favored every time, she has a nice history at Belmont.

After breaking her maiden by over 10 lengths, Dreaming of Julia won her second career start at Belmont by over 16 lengths. In her next start, she won the Frizette at Belmont by a game head.

When this miss brings her A game, she is awesome. After being short in her first start of 2013, she won the GP Oaks by nearly 22 lengths with an awesome 114 Beyer Speed Figure.

Pace will be the big subject coming to the Belmont. It was as hot as a pistol in the Kentucky Derby and cold as an ice cube in the Preakness.

The logical horse betting thing to think would be that in the mile and a half Belmont, a horse that comes from far back should have plenty of time to get up in win.

But in reality, runners with tactical speed thrive in the Belmont Stakes.

Pay attention in the days to come.
