What: Belmont Stakes
Who: Revolutionary (to win, key Revolutionary first and second in the trificta with Orb, Will Take Charge, Frac Daddy, Palace Malice and Overanalyze.
Where: Belmont Park
When: Saturday, June 8

The Grade 1 $1,000,000 Belmont Stakes has drawn a huge field after the Derby and the Preakness winners didn’t scare anybody away and online sports betting players will have value options.

Orb will likely go favorite but I don’t thing he will be hammered. His trainer Shug McGaughey has been positive about the way his charge has been going but not as confident it seems before his impressive Derby.

Five in a row is a pretty nice streak but it came to an end when Oxbow took advantage of a lonely Preakness lead.

This guy was on the deepest part of the track for the most part in the Preakness as being inside was not the place to be Preakness Day or the previous day.

Legit trouble the other time at Belmont and he may not have cared for the rail that day either. Since the last, he has been galloping steadily to stay in shape and would expect him to run much huge today.

In the June 2 drill, this guy went 4 furlongs in :48.30 on the very quick main track getting his last quarter in :23.35, galloping out 5 furlongs in 1:00.48, 6 furlongs in 1:13.77 and 7 furlongs in 1:28.85. It was done in company with Hymn Book, who is a Grade 1 winner that has earned nearly $900,000.

Will Take Charge has a right to run better here, as he did not get a great trip in Maryland.

Freedom Child is an interesting online betting runner. This $350,000 purchase reveled in the off going in the Peter Pan drawing off as he pleased.

He is trying to become the first Peter Pan/ Belmont Stakes winner since A. P. Indy in 1992 and he has trained solidly since his last race and obviously likes the Belmont strip.

In the 6/2 gallop, this guy reportedly was very strong while the exercise rider under a strangle hold. With a clean break, look for this Child to be sent hard in an attempt to repeat.

If you are looking for a horse betting longshot play, you could do worse than taking a shot at Frac Daddy.

Hung out to dry from slot 17 at Churchill, Daddy has had issues.

He grabbed a quarter January 26 and he also has had a throat ulcer issue but those issues appear to be behind him.

He was a late definite for this race based on the way he has been training. The move on the 25th was 2 ticks the best and tied with a gate drill posted by Conquest Titan, a non-starter with a classy bottom side.

The drill on the 5/31 was a tick the best over stakes placed runner Trelawny.

His trainer has confidence and he had this to say in the DRF, Ken McPeek: “He’s training as well as I’ve ever seen, it’s like Lucas says, you can’t win it unless you’re in it.”

This is not McPeek’s first rodeo as he saddled Sarava to win the Belmont 11 years ago at 70-1 so he’s looking for that déjà vu feeling.

In a wide-open race, look for Revolutionary to run them all down. He can be much closer to the pace today, he has won on the road at Fair Grounds and was getting to Orb in the Derby.

His rider, Javier Castellano, has been up for 2 of his three wins and he should be picking them up and laying them down in the drive.

Bet Revolutionary to win and key him first and second in the trifecta with Orb, Will Take Charge, Frac Daddy, Palace Malice and Overanalyze.
