Belmont Stakes handicapping on Rachel Alexandra, the filly that took the Preakness Stakes, is still a possibility for Belmont Stakes wagering action on June 6.
Rachel Alexandra and Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird both prepared for a potential Belmont Stakes handicapping rematch last Wednesday with workouts at Churchill Downs since posting a 1-2 finish in the May 16 Preakness Stakes as the filly held off the late charging gelding by less than a length to enter Belmont Stakes wagering action as the public choice if she runs.
Rachel Alexandra had what would best be described as a Belmont Stakes handicapping checkup run at Churchill Downs as she galloped a mile on a fast track. Mine That Bird prepared for Belmont Stakes handicapping action by galloping a mile and a half on the Churchill Downs track.
After that workout trainer Bennie “Chip” Woolley Jr. said that Mine That Bird would take a few days off to rest for the Belmont. Everyone in Belmont Stakes handicapping is hoping for a rematch between the winners of the first two Triple Crown races.
Rachel Alexandra is called the best filly that would ever enter Belmont Stakes handicapping action and is also being touted as “horse of the year”. Mine That Bird, meanwhile, earned a lot of credibility for his strong second place run in the Preakness Stakes.
He will enter Belmont Stakes handicapping as one of the favorites as he seems to run well late and come on strong down the stretch, which is a perfect style for the mile and a half Belmont Stakes handicapping run, which is the longest race in the Triple Crown series.
Many handicappers speculated that if the Preakness were as long of a race as the Belmont, Mine That Bird would have caught Rachel Alexandra and passed her before the wire, which is why the gambling public wants one more race between them!
