  • The 2019 Belmont Stakes will be run on Saturday, June 8 at 6:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
  • Sean Zerillo offers some strategies to help pick the right combination for exotics, including his trifecta and superfecta plays.

The Belmont Stakes is the third jewel of the Triple Crown, and typically my personal favorite racing day (and weekend) of the year.

War of Will has a chance to win two of the three legs of the Triple Crown series, with an argument that he also would have been making a move in the deep stretch on a disqualified Maximum Security in the Kentucky Derby.

Trainer Bill Mott (Tacitus) also has a chance to win two of the three legs after Country House was moved up to first place following that Derby incident. Mott previously won the Belmont Stakes with Drosselmeyer (2010).

This is a great betting race for single race exotics. Here’s how I’m playing them:

2019 Belmont Stakes Odds

No. 1: Joevia (30-1)
No. 2: Everfast (12-1)
No. 3: Master Fencer (8-1)
No. 4: Tax (15-1)
No. 5: Bourbon War (12-1)
No. 6: Spinoff (15-1)
No. 7: Sir Winston (12-1)
No. 8: Intrepid Heart (10-1)
No. 9: War of Will (2-1)
No. 10: Tacitus (9-5)

2019 Belmont Stakes Trifecta, Superfecta Plays

I think we’re in for a chalky Belmont Stakes this year, with No. 10 Tacitus (36%) and No. 9 War of Will (33%) winning this race nearly 70% of the time based upon the implied morning line odds.

I think it should be closer to 80%.
