The final leg of the U.S Triple Crown Series is underway. The 2019 Belmont Stakes will take place on June 8, 2019, in the race track of Elmont Park, Belmont, New York. The same with the other two major horse racing tournaments that make up the Triple Crown Series, the Belmont Stakes is graced by three-year-old colts which will all compete to win the prize at stake in Grade 1 category.
Moreover, as you may have already known, the Preakness Stakes has recently concluded last May 18, 2019, in Pimlico Park and it was War of Will who won the said competition. With his emphatic and inarguably win in the Preakness, he is now ready to compete in the “Run for the Carnations” on Saturday.
While the exciting vibe is filling the air of Elmont Park, this is the first that the Triple Crown Series will not expect a Triple Crown winner this year. This is due to the fact that the first leg of the series which is the Kentucky Derby had faced the most controversial season this year. Looking back, it was Maximum Security who won the first place in the Kentucky Derby but a few minutes after he was disqualified due to a “bumping at the pole incident”. With this reason, the second finisher Country House took the Kentucky Crown.
Following his disqualification, Maximum Security declares an exit right away avoiding the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. On the other hand, Country House wasn’t able to compete in the Preakness because he was sick and needs a lot of time to recover. This is why the horse racing community can’t expect a Triple Crown titleholder this year. Remember that in order for a colt to be a Triple Crown title holder, he must win the three horse racing tournament namely Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes.
While it is true that all horse racing fans can’t expect a Triple Crown winner this year, the Belmont Stakes ensures that they will still give a great show. This is for the reason that the betting games and categories haven’t changed despite the issues of the previous racing games. All racing fans can still expect the great value of odds and prizes at stake are still on the run.
As of this time, the list of the Belmont Stakes horse racers was all set and final and everyone is looking forward for an excellent racing show. Betting Guides are also available for everyone to look which horse racer may give the highest value. Like the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, the Belmont Stakes still offers the “Win”, “Place”, and “Show” betting categories. If you want to bring your betting game to a more exciting and interesting level, you can also partake in Exacta, Trifecta, Superfecta, and Quinella betting categories.
