Belmont Stakes Weather: Horses That Run Best on Sloppy Track

Belmont Stakes Weather

When it comes to the Belmont Stakes weather, a muddy track could be in the forecast  You will want to follow Gambling911.com closely as odds are likely to fluctuate rapidly throughout the day on Saturday.  There is a 50 to 60 percent chance throughout the day.  Update:  Mud horse Shackleford was at just over 8/1 odds late Saturday with rain.

A sloppy track would favor Shackleford (currently at 6/1 odds) although only a single horse has won the Belmont in the race’s long hundred plus year history from his post position.  The longer track does not favor Shackleford so any adverse track conditions are a plus.

Half of the Belmont Stakes entries have never run on a muddy track and only two have won on mud – Ruler On Ice and Monzon.  While Monzon is a huge long shot whose post position has never won a Belmont Stakes race, Ruler On Ice will start from a very favorable position among the first five that have had Belmont wins in 70 races.  The No. 3 post is responsible for 13 Belmont winners in fact. 

Belmont Stakes odds were available at BetDSI.com.  Odds below were as of early Friday afternoon. 

The only change to the odds has occurred with Animal Kingdom, and only a slight change at that, from +230 earlier to +200.
