Belmont Stakes Picks (2011)

Our Belmont Stakes picks for the 2011 race come relatively easy.  We love Animal Kingdom and Shackleford.

Both these horses have been consistent in the Kentucky Derby and The Preakness.

Shackleford nearly won the Derby after leading for 90 percent of the way.  With a shorter track for the Preakness, he managed to just beat out the Derby winner Animal Kingdom. 

Shackleford would pay out $600 for every $100 bet with a win at the 2011 Belmont Stakes race.  Animal Kingdom would pay close to $300.

When it comes to this year’s Belmont Stakes picks, it really is all about Shackleford vs. Animal Kingdom.  In the 22 times when the Derby winner went up against the Preakness victor, the Preakness champ won 10 of those times, while the Derby champ won only five times.

We have to go with Animal Kingdom here though.  With an extra 1/16-mile (the comprised the Kentucky Derby Churchill Downs track) Animal Kingdom would surely have won by a couple lengths in the Preakness.

Shackleford drawing the number 12 post position is a handicap.  Hence the 6 to 1 long odds.

Horse Racing Odds – 2021 Belmont Stakes Longshots

The third jewel of horse racing’s Triple Crown takes place Saturday with a field of eight horses set to take their shot in the Belmont Stakes. Opening odds for the 153rd edition suggest a wide-open field, which in turn can lead to an upset special. The number of longshots is diminished by the small field, but like we saw in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, anything can happen.
