Exploring the Net we find the obvious, all the experts are in love with Justify at 4-5 odds and his chance of earning the second Triple Crown in three years following a decades long drought. But there are other horses that stand out as potential competition.   SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE

For some horse racing experts like OptixEQ, Tournament Handicapper, Emily Gullikson, TVG On-Air Host and Analyst, Candice Hare, and Video Correspondent and Handicapper for America's Best Racing, Dan Tordjan, Hofburg is their choice to win at 9-2 odds.  These were second shortest after Justify.

Joe Drape (New York Times): "This colt deservedly is going to take a lot of money. He is lightly raced, bred for the distance and in expert hands."

Melissa Hoppert (New York Times): "A Hall of Fame trainer, a star New York jockey, and a sire, Tapit, who has produced three of the past four Belmont winners. If there’s an upset, this is likely the one who is pulling it off."

Noble Indy at 30-1 odds was showing up in many of the experts trifectas.

Drape says of Noble Indy: "This colt should keep Justify and Restoring Hope company into the stretch. He has been fierce in the lane before. He is not the worst long shot on the board."

Below are your 2018 Belmont Stakes odds.

Justify 4-5
Hofburg 9-2
Bravazo 7-1
Vino Rosso 8-1                     
Tenfold 12-1  
Gronkowski 12-1                            
Blended Citizen 15-1                
Noble Indy 30-1                        
Free Drop Billy 30-1
Restoring Hope 30-1
