Belmont Stakes Bettor's Guide: Your complete guide to the final jewel ...


The 146th running of the Belmont Stakes, a Grade I event for 3-year-olds and the final jewel in thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown, will take place Saturday, 6:52 p.m. at Belmont Park.

NO. 1 MEDAL COUNT (20-1)

Trainer: Dale Romans

Jockey: Robby Albarado

5-3, Kentucky Derby, 8-7½

4-12, Blue Grass, 2-1¾

4-4, Transylvania, 1-1¼

Didn't have cleanest of trips in Derby when eighth after a solid second in Blue Grass Stakes over the Polytrack. Maybe just a better horse on synthetics and grass than on dirt. Regardless, horse is bred to run all day and may appreciate marathon distance of Belmont. Romans and Albarado each have a Preakness win, but neither has won the Belmont.
