Belmont Stakes odds handicappers will give a thorough evaluation of Uptowncharlybrown for Belmont Stakes betting consideration on June 5.
Uptowncharlybrown is more than a fancy and catchy Belmont gambling name as he has solid credentials in his own right with 5 career starts that have resulted in 2 wins and 2 shows with total earnings of $99,200. Uptowncharlybrown is also well rested as he has not run since April 17.
Uptowncharlybrown is owned by Fantasy Lane Stable and is trained by Kiaran McLaughlin with a well known jockey Rajiv Maragh getting the mount. Uptowncharlybrown is by Limehouse and La Iluminada..
Uptowncharlybrown last ran on April 17 at Keeneland in the Lexington, a Grade 2 race, and finished 3rd as he rallied from being as far back as 11th at the quarter pole and 9th at the halfway mark.
He hit the stretch at 6th. Uptowncharlybrown broke slowly from the gate and was bumped but the strong close is what has gained him respect and attention with those who will wager the horse betting odds.
A strong close is the key to success with the Belmont Stakes odds as the race is the longest of the Triple Crown series at a mile and a half in length.
Uptowncharlybrown broke his maiden at Tampa when he won the first horse racing gambling run of his career on December 26 in a race that was 6 and one half furlongs in length.
He also scored a win on January 16 at Tampa in a 7 furlong run. He added to his resume with the Belmont Stakes odds by finishing 3rd in the SF Davis, a Grade 3 race at Tampa.
This will be the first horse racing betting mount for Rajiv Maragh aboard Uptowncharlybrown as Garrett Gomez got the last one at Keeneland.
McLaughlin said that workouts are going well. He said the distance is a question mark but it is for all of the horses that take the gate at the Belmont Stakes.
“I wish the Belmont were today instead of next week,” said the trainer. “He’s ready to go so we’re happy.”
