NEW PLAYERS Bet the Triple Crown online & legally with TVG. Sign-up today and we’ll double your first deposit, instantly.

June 9th sees New York host the landmark 150th running of the Belmont Stakes and it would be very fitting should we witness a 13th Triple Crown champion. Betting will get going in earnest after the Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May and by the time the Belmont Stakes is run two weeks later, we should know our Belmont favorite.

As well as rumour regarding which horses are going well at home, the previous two legs of the Triple Crown will do more than most races to shape this market, especially if something wins at both Kentucky and Maryland.

Bolt D’Oro, Good Magic, Beautiful Shot and Untamed Domain are all now stars of this generation and have a chance of arriving at Belmont with a winning chance.

Bet Types

With a TV audience of over 20million, many bet the Belmont Stakes as a way to feel like they are getting involved in the event personally and there are a number of ways to do this. The three main bet types are the ‘win’, ‘place’ and ‘show’ bets. Here’s an explanation of what they mean:

WIN
This one speaks for itself; your chosen horse must win for you to get paid.

PLACE
To win this bet, your horse needs to finish in the first 2.

SHOW
This time, your horse must be in the top 3 to win the bet.

The payouts you can receive depend not just on how much money is in the pot, but also on the degree of difficulty. Naturally then, the highest payouts are on win bets, the second highest on place bets and, given that it is the easiest to get right, the lowest payouts are on show bets.

If you want to make things more interesting when betting the Belmont however, you can try something a little different. Maybe you really like the look of two or more horses in the race but can’t choose between them, an EXACTA bet may be for you.

With the exacta you are basically predicting which horses will finish 1st and 2nd and, if you get it right, this can lead to a big payout. If you’re not so sure that you can predict this accurately you can also box your bet to give yourself a better chance. You will pay double the amount to do this, but it means that your chosen two horses can finish 1st or 2nd in any order.

Placing Your Bets

It’s a great thrill to feel like we’re taking part in the Belmont Stakes by betting, especially walking up to the teller to collect your money when you’ve backed the winning horse. You don’t have to get to New York to achieve this though, so betting right here online is the way to go and you can check out our betting page for more information.

Choosing Your Bet

Reading a race program to find out each animal’s form, their work out times or what sort of race conditions they prefer is one way of doing it but remember to check in here for more info on each horse as we near post time.

Make sure when it comes to the Belmont you check out more than form though. Breeding will play a part, as those by horses who have proven stamina in their bloodline may hold an advantage in what is a true test of a thoroughbred on a deep surface over a mile-and-a-half.
