This year the New York Racing Association proudly plays host to yet another running of the Belmont Stakes, an adrenaline rush that is considered by many to be the most exciting 2 minutes in all of Sports. In keeping with tradition, the crew at Belmont Park has pulled out all the stops: a luxurious, star studded horse racing event is planned, with all the best horses, trainers, and jockeys vying for the Belmont championship.
The Belmont Stakes is also the third and final leg of the Triple Crown, horse racing's darling event that has only been won by a handful of amazing horses. This is the race that makes or breaks Triple Crown hopefuls. In years past, it has proven to be an unpredictable race. In 2008, Triple Crown hopeful Big Brown dropped out, opening up the field for any horse to win. The tale of the tape revealed upset winner Da’Tara steaming down the home stretch and into Belmont Park history, grabbing the win against long odds. No one expected Da’Tara would finish in the top 5, let alone trot away with the winning prize money.
Over the years, Belmont Stakes betting has been nothing short of thrilling. In the 1970's, the Triple Crown events saw the likes of Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed; the three most recent winners of this racing triad. In recent times, many horses have come close to completing the hat trick at The Belmont Stakes, only to leave their Triple Crown dreams on the track. Big Brown, War Emblem, and others come to mind. These two horses sailed through the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, only to fall short at Belmont Park.
Even if the Triple Crown isn't being contested, the action at Belmont Park is still formidable. In some years, the handle at the Belmont Stakes has been well into the millions of dollars, making this event especially important for horse owners looking for both riches and bragging rights.
