Bet on Belmont Stakes options will include one of the highly touted beaten favorites of the Kentucky Derby who will have fresh legs for Belmont Stakes gambling. Dunkirk could be one of the best sleeper/values to bet on Belmont Stakes action with as he was a highly regarded horse prior to the Triple Crown season that has taken time off since his 11th place finish in the Kentucky Derby.
Dunkirk has 4 starts this year entering Belmont Stakes gambling action with 2 wins and 1 place and total earnings of $193,200. Dunkirk’s poor showing at the Kentucky Derby was blamed on the sloppy track. Those who will bet on Belmont Stakes racing should keep that in mind as another poor track would certainly diminish his chances.
After Dunkirk fared so poorly in the Kentucky Derby, his trainer, Todd Pletcher, felt that there was no need to run the Preakness and therefore it was decided to rest the horse up for a bet on Belmont Stakes action instead. Pletcher believes that the horse has done well in workouts leading up to bet on Belmont Stakes racing action this Saturday.
Jockey John Velazquez will get the mount on Dunkirk, which will only enhance the horse’s appeal to those looking to make a bet on Belmont Stakes racing. Velazquez is no stranger to success and winning a bet on Belmont Stakes action as he rode filly Rags to Riches to the winner’s circle in the 2007.
Velazquez is one of the most respected jockeys in America and Pletcher believes he gives Dunkirk the best chance to pick up a win for those making a bet on Belmont Stakes racing.
Prior to the Kentucky Derby Dunkirk had finished second in the Florida Derby, first in an Allowance at Gulfstream Park, and first in a Maiden Special Weight at Gulfstream Park. The Belmont is a golden opportunity for redemption after the Derby letdown.
