Belmont Past Performances

You can get the Daily Racing Form's past performances for the Belmont Stakes here. Smarty Jones is drawn outside in post 9 and is the 2-5 favorite in the morning line. He'll probably be bet down to 1-5 or 3-10. To make a profit at 3-10 odds, the probability that the horse wins must be .77 or higher. That's not a bad estimate of his chances -- the Triple Crown is not in the bag yet. The competition is keen. Smarty & jockey Stewart Elliot will probably face a challenge of some sort - Purge, Rock Hard Ten, and Eddington are the realistic threats - and they will have to do things right to win. I think they will, but there's a saying in racing: "There's not a man alive, who's paid off the mortgage at 2-5." Have fun, and hopefully a toast to a deserving Triple Crown Winner!
