Zerillo: My Betting Card for 2019 Belmont Stakes Day
12:47 p.m. ET
In a small field, I like the No. 3 Grumps Little Tots (12-1) to hit the board at a price. I’ll take some action across the board, use him on top in an exacta over the No. 4. Outshine (9-5) and No. 3 Dream Maker (6-1),and also use the three together to begin both a pick three and daily double.
Pick: 3 over 2,4
1:22 p.m. ET
No. 4 Rushing Fall (4-5) is the horse to beat here in a good field. I’ll single her in multi-race wagers, and play an additional daily double with Race 5.
