2020 Belmont Stakes Trifecta Picks & Advice

I recommend a 4 horse Trifecta Part Wheel, keying 2 horses in the first position, 3 horses in the second position and 4 horses in the third. Why?

A 4 horse Trifecta Box costs $24, $1 per combination. But a 4 horse Trifecta Part Wheel using my recommendation is only $8, $1 per combination. The part wheel bet is more efficient. You stand to win more for a much cheaper wager.

You save money because your third horse is excluded from the first key. Also, your fourth horse is excluded from both the first and second keys. Why pay for these horses if they’re not likely to win?

You’ll be making a more efficient bet with higher profit potential. And you’ll be way ahead of the newbie crowd. They tend to bet win, place or show only.

How to Key Horses in a Trifecta Part Wheel

Review the clip from our “How to Bet on Horses” video tutorial below. I’ll discuss this wager and each horse below.

Let’s create our Trifecta Part Wheel keys from the Belmont Stakes Odds table.

Tiz The Law heads to Belmont Park as the heavy favorite. He’s trained by Barclay Tagg. Tiz the Law has 2 recent graded stakes wins this year, including the G3 Holy Bull Stakes and G1 Florida Derby. He also won the G1 Champagne Stakes in 2019.

Now let’s pick one more horse for the first key. Also add this horse to your 2nd and 3rd keys.

Sole Volante comes to the Belmont with a big win at the G3 Sam F Davis Stakes. This gelding was 2nd at the March 7, 2020 Tampa Bay Derby and 3rd at Gulfstream Park’s Mucho Macho Man Stakes on January 4, 2020. Trainer Patrick Biancone has high hopes this horse will be his first Belmont Stakes winner.

Next, we’ll add a third horse to our 2nd key. Also put this horse in the 3rd key.

Max Player was first at the G3 Withers Stakes on February 1, 2020. He also won a MSW at Parx Racing on December 17, 2019.

Finally we’ll add a 4th and final horse to our 3rd key.

The Belmont Stakes will be Dr Post’s first graded stakes race. Previously, he was victorious in an unbridled races at Gulfstream Park on April 25, 2020 and a MSW on March 29, 2020. His last race at Belmont Park was on July 4, 2019, where he placed 4th in another MSW.

How to Make this Bet

There are 3 ways to bet trifectas. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

The simplest is a straight trifecta. It’s also difficult to win. You can only pick 3 horses. These horses must finish in the exact order you specified.

Trifecta Boxes and Wheels are two alternatives. You can add more than 3 horses to either bet. This increases the likelihood of winning in exchange for a higher bet cost.

The following video explains how to place a wheel bet. The procedure is the same for exactas and superfectas. Watch the entire video for help with other bets!

  1. Straight Trifecta Bet – Pick 3 horses to finish in the top 3 positions. Final order matters.
  2. Trifecta Box Bet – Pick any number of horses to finish in the top 3 positions. Final order does not matter.
  3. Trifecta Part Wheel Bet – Select horses to key into each position: first, second and third. Final order does matter depending on how you key each horse.

Efficiency Increases Value

Trifecta Boxes are more likely to win because final order does not matter. A box is less efficient than a wheel because you end up buying more combinations than you need.

Trifecta Part Wheels are harder to win because you must select and key horses correctly. However a part wheel is more efficient than a box. You will invest less bankroll to potentially win more money.
