The long range weather forecast for the 2018 Belmont Stakes was calling for possible showers on Saturday, however, as of Friday night it appeared there would be dry weather for the race.


Justify is vying for a Triple Crown victory and has won both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes on a muddy track. He was only a -150 price prior to post time.

Bravazo certainly demonstrated that he can run in the mud, finishing 6th at the Kentucky Derby and then 2nd in the slop of the Preakness Stakes.  His odds were set at 8-1 prior to post time.

Hofberg finished 7th in the Kentucky Derby on the muddy track.

That Kentucky Derby ended up being the wettest on record.  The Preakness Stakes also featured significant rainfall.  It now appears the third leg of the Triple Crown will be a dry one.
