Belmont Stakes Wagering at Sports Gambling

Belmont Stakes wagering will take place on Saturday, June 6 as the odds will be set for what promises to be an outstanding and yet unusual field of horses.

Belmont Stakes wagering fans are yet to know whether the filly that won the Preakness Stakes, Rachel Alexandra, will be posted on the Belmont Stakes odds board.

With three weeks between the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes wagering, it is hoped the Rachel Alexandra will enter action against the Belmont Stakes odds for a final showdown in the Triple Crown series against Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird, who she beat out by less than a length in the Preakness.

What made the Preakness Stakes results even more interesting is that the jockey that rode Mine That Bird to victory in the Kentucky Derby, Calvin Borel, chose to ride Rachel Alexandra in the Preakness!  This sets up a great story line for Belmont Stakes wagering if the filly makes the race.

If Rachel Alexandra enters Belmont Stakes wagering action she will do so as the first filly to win the Preakness Stakes since 1924 and the first filly to win a Triple Crown race since Rags to Riches won the 2007 Belmont Stakes wagering event.

While Mine That Bird and Rachel Alexandra will receive a lot of Belmont Stakes wagering attention, a host of other horses will enter Belmont Stakes wagering action looking to redeem themselves for coming up short in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes.

Pioneer of the Nile was one of the favorites in both of those races but came up short.  The Belmont Stakes wagering run will he his last chance to prove himself as a true top notch horse that won the Santa Anita Derby as the best colt to come out of California.

Friesan Fire, Big Drama, and surprising Musket Man are other horses that bring potential to Belmont Park.  Flying Private finished 4th in the Preakness after finishing dead last in the Derby, showing that legendary trainer D. Wayne Lucas can still bring a horse along with momentum for the Belmont.
