Belmont Stakes 2020 Picks and Predictions

Dual Grade 1 winner Tiz the Law is the 6-5 favourite in the 2020 Belmont Stakes, and deservedly so. The New York-bred star, who was a big winner over this course last year as a juvenile, should be used on top in most bets, and could even be singled in multi-race wagers. Choosing who to fill in beneath him is a matter of selecting which horses bring the most value.

Tap It to Win is coming off two straight victories this year, has a win over the track by five lengths and is well-positioned on the rail. Max Player has already won over the 1 1/8-mile distance here in New York and has had plenty of time to recoup with a phenomenal bullet workout on June 3. Dr Post was a stakes winner in April for Todd Pletcher and appears to be improving all the time.

  • $20 Win, #8 Tiz the Law
  • $5 Exacta, #8 Tiz the Law with #1 Tap It to Win and #9 Dr Post
  • $1 Superfecta Box, #1 Tap It to Win, #3 Max Player, #8 Tiz the Law, #9 Dr Post

In the chance that something goes awry with Tiz the Law and you want to be covered with some possible huge payouts, bettors can try the following:

  • $10 Win, #1 Tap It to Win and #3 Max Player
  • $2 Exacta, #1 Tap It to Win, #2 Sole Volante, and #9 Dr Post over #8 Tiz the Law

Belmont Stakes Day Bets

As race day draws closer, handicappers will be keeping an eye on updated Belmont odds on the contenders and will be considering multiple betting options such as Win, Place, and Show as well as exotics such as exactas, trifectas, superfectas, and multi-race wagers.

The first Pick 4 will be on Races 2 – 5, starting with the Woody Stephen Stakes (G1). Here is a possible ticket for the first Pick 4, with a base wager of 50 cents.

  • Race 2 – 1, 3
  • Race 3 – 1, 5, 6, 7
  • Race 4 – 1, 5, 6
  • Race 5 – 2, 8

Ticket Price: $24

The second Pick 4 is on Races 7 – 10, including the Belmont Stakes.

  • Race 7 – 3, 4, 10
  • Race 8 – 1, 7
  • Race 9 – 2, 4
  • Race 10 - 8

Ticket Price: $6

The Pick 3 starts in Race 1 and rolls through every race until Race 9. As such, you can bet on races 1 – 3, then 2 – 4, 3 – 5, through 9 – 11.

The Pick 3 from Races 9 through 11 could look as such:

  • Race 9 – 1, 2, 4, 7
  • Race 10 – 1, 2, 8
  • Race 11 – 1, 9, 11

The other major race on the card is the $300,000 Acorn Stakes (G1) for sophomore fillies. #1 Gamine is unproven in stakes company but is a $1.8 million purchase and unbeaten in two starts. She drew the rail, while #8 Perfect Alibi on the outside is making her 2020 debut after being a Grade 1 winner in New York last year. She has not run since finishing fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) at Santa Anita in November. Bob Baffert trains Gamine, and Mark Casse trains Perfect Alibi.

How to Bet the Belmont Stakes

Betting on the Belmont Stakes usually comes down to selecting a talented three-year-old who can both go the full distance and isn’t too tired from the rigorous prep schedule in the spring. The Belmont is notorious for recent upsets, with double-digit payout winners regularly outlasting the favourites down the stretch.

It is a myth that closers perform better in the long straightaway at Belmont; in reality, speed is often king as controlling the pace over the extra-long racetrack configuration results in plenty of winners. A late-running closer often struggles in the lane compared to a horse who has been either leading or is sitting just behind the pace to pounce.

It is wise to evaluate how the track is playing, given that on some major race days the track and be harder and faster. Weather plays a role in picking a Belmont winner as well since the track can play either fast or slow depending on the amount of rain.

  • Belmont Stakes Live Odds

    Whether you are making a future bet or waiting for the live odds on raceday, you can bet your Belmont selection to Win, Place or Show as a single bet, a combination of two places or right across the board. After making a Win bet, think of a Place or Show bet as a "saver" and consider the odds. Horses at +300 or lower should be bet only to win, up to +600 to Win and Place, and +700 and above to Win and Show. 

  • Belmont Stakes Multirace Exotics

    On race day, Belmont Park will be offering some type of multi-race bet that will include the Belmont Stakes, most likely Pick3, Pick4 and Pick5, where you try and get the winner in three, four or five straight races. Usually when making these kinds of bets you want to "key" on one horse as a single Win bet in one of the races, and then choose two or three other horses in the other races to fill out the bet.

    To key one horse and use three others in a $2 Pick3 bet would cost $18: (1 x 3 x 3) = 9 x $2=$18.    

  • Belmont Stakes Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta Wagering Odds

    Exactas, trifectas and superfectas are bets where you pick the first two, three or four horses to finish in order in the race. While you can make these all straight wagers with single horses in each spot - for example 2/3 in that order in an exacta, 2/3/4 in a trifecta or 2/3/4/5 in a superfecta, the better strategy is to "box" these kinds of bets to give multiple combinations on the same horses.

    All-time Belmont Stakes Winners

    When it comes to the subject of the best horses ever to win the Belmont Stakes, 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat is always the first name that comes up. Not only did he set a record in winning the race by an incredible 31 lengths, but he also set the race record time at 2:24. Given that the second-fastest time in the 45 years since then is a full two seconds slower, it's a record that may never be broken. 

    More recently, American Pharoah in 2015 scored an emotional win when he took the Belmont after sweeping the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, becoming the first horse in 37 years to claim the US Triple Crown. Just three years later, Justify replicated his stablemate's feat, completing the Triple in 2018.
