Betting on the 2017 Belmont Stakes – Odds, Tips, Picks

Lookin at Lee Belmont Stakes

The 149th running of the Belmont Stakes will take place this weekend at Belmont Park in Elmont New York. The Belmont Stakes is the third leg of the Triple Crown. There will be no triple crown winner this season with Always Dreaming coming away with the Kentucky Derby and Cloud Computing taking the title at the Preakness. The Belmont is known as the 1.5 mile “test of the champion”. Let’s take a look at some of the best betting odds for the 2017 Belmont Stakes:

Classic Empire 3/1:

The big favorite in this race. Trained by Mark Casse, and rode by Julien R. Leparoux. This horse can fly! Look for Classic Empire to be one of the leaders from the very beginning. Getting out to a quick start may be a huge factor for Classic Empire. You can bet on this horse at 3/1 odds to win the 2017 Belmont.

Senior Investment 5/1:

Kenneth G. McPeek feels Senior Investment is more than ready to bring home the title here at Belmont. Senior Investment can really run, and deems to be meant for the track at Belmont. When you are looking at making your Belmont Stakes bets, consider Senior Investment at 5/1 odds.

Epicharis 6/1:

A very active horse that is trained by Kiyoshi Hagiwara. Epicharis finished 2nd in March to Thunder Snow, and took the title at Hyacinth Stakes in February. Is this the time for Epicharis? That’s the question, but no doubt – in the mix is where this horse will be.

Lookin at Lee 6/1:

This horse has been around for all three of the Triple Crown races thus far. Arriving on June 1st to Belmont, Looking at Lee has had some great practice runs. Look for Corey Laneria and the L and N Racing company to be in the mix when push comes to shove at the end of the Belmont. You can bet Looking at Lee at 6/1 odds.

Tapwrit 6/1:

Tapwrit is an unknown treasure in the world of horse racing. The 3 year old colt is trained by Todd A. Pletcher. You may have heard of him; as he has been winning races on a consistent basis. Tapwrit has not fared great in his last two runs, with a 6th place and a 5th place after winning in Tampa Bay. Tapwrit is listed at 6/1 odds to win the Belmont.

There you have it. We want to wish you the best of luck with all your Belmont Stakes betting. We have given you the odds for a few of the favorites. In the end, our bet to win the 2017 Belmont is Looking at Lee at 6-1. This should be a fun race, that will run pretty face. The weather appears to be nice for this weekend, so should be a great day to race! Best of luck!
