The 2020 Triple Crown racing series for the top three-year old thoroughbreds in the nation gets underway this Saturday with the running of the Belmont Stakes. This race also highlights a full day of major graded stakes racing at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. 

The best way to get in on all the betting action is at America’s Bookie online sportsbook and racebook. Known as America’s most trusted bookie, this online betting site continues to set the standard in the industry.  

With a strong commitment to making your online sports betting experience a safe and enjoyable one, America’s Bookie offers a wide array of betting options for every sport and sporting event. This is especially true for a horse race as big as the Belmont Stakes. 

This year’s Triple Crown racing season has been turned upside down because of the coronavirus health crisis. The Kentucky Derby had to be postponed until Saturday, Sept. 5 and the Preakness Stakes has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 3.  

The Belmont Stakes is traditionally the final leg of the series and the toughest test these three-year old’s face at a length of 1 ½ miles on dirt. This year’s race will kick things off at a shorter distance of 1 1/8 miles around the dirt track at Belmont Park. 

The first way you can bet this race at America’s Bookie is through the futures odds posted in the horse betting section of the sportsbook. Right now, the field is expected to feature nine contenders for the first jewel of the 2020 Triple Crown.  

At the top of the list is trainer Barclay Tagg’s Tiz the Law as the -140 favorite. This three-year old New York-bred colt is also a +225 favorite to win the Kentucky Derby on that futures board. The second-favorite to win the Belmont Stakes is Tap It To Win at +500 betting odds. This three-year old Florida-bred colt is trained by Mark Casse. He is coming off a recent win at Belmont on June 4 in a 1 1/16 mile Allowance Claimer. 

A few other contenders on the Belmont Stakes’ futures list include Dr. Post (+700), Sole Volante (+800) and Modernist (+1400). 

By the time Saturday’s post time rolls around, you will also be able to bet on a few head-to-head matchups at America’s Bookie sportsbook along with a few special prop bet options covering different aspects of the race. 

Moving to the site’s extended racebook for horse betting, America’s Bookie offers fast and easy access to more than 75 different Thoroughbred and harness racing tracks across the nation and around the world. If a track is running a daily card, you can bet on all the races through the racebook section of the website. 

Mirroring a day at the track, you will have a full array of betting options to choose from, including the basic Win-Place-Show wagers to all your standard exotics such as exactas, trifectas and the Daily Double. Payoffs are based on actual track odds when the horses leave the gate. 

This year’s Belmont Stakes kicks off an entire summer of horse racing at America’s Bookie. Saving the best for last, this year’s Kentucky Derby should be bigger and better than ever. The list of strong contenders to win the annual “Run for the Roses’ at Churchill Downs is rather deep. Tiz the Law has the inside track as the Belmont favorite in the first step towards the Triple Crown.
