Belmont Stakes odds will include the Preakness Stakes show horse First Dude, who lost by less than a length to Lookin and Lucky to become a Belmont Stakes betting favorite.
The Belmont online Stakes wagering lineup is also expected to include Ice Box, Drosselmeyer, Dublin, Fly Down, Game on Dude, Make Music for Me, New Madrid, Setsuko, Spangled Star, Stately Victor, Stay Put, and Uptowncharlybrown.
First Dude is receiving a lot of horse racing gambling consideration and respect after his outstanding run in the Preakness in which he led for much of the way. He went neck to neck with Lookin at Lucky down the stretch in a thrilling sprint to the wire.
First Dude is trained by Dale Romans, who was also the trainer for Paddy O’Prado, the show horse for the Kentucky Derby that finished 6th in the Preakness Stakes. Paddy O’Prado will not be on the Belmont Stakes odds board.
Ice Box and First Dude should enter the Belmont Stakes as the co- horse racing betting favorites. Ice Box finished a strong and impressive second in the Kentucky Derby.
Ice Box had a strong finish in the Derby after encountering early trouble which is an ideal strategy for the marathon one and one half mile long run at Belmont Park, which is the longest run of the three Triple Crown horse races.
First Dude will get plenty of action with gamblers playing the Belmont Stakes odds after the Preakness Stakes performance that won the respect of handicappers everywhere.
“My horse ran super,” said Romans of First Dude. “It was an excellent race. I couldn’t be happier with him. A mile and a half race is a speed race. If he can go out there with a little slower fractions, he’ll be tough to catch.”
Romans said that First Dude will be shipped to Belmont Park at the end of this week in preparation for his run with the horse betting odds in a race that has a total purse of $1 million.
