Belmont Stakes Odds 2017: Betting Tips for Race

In a year without a Triple Crown on the line or even one without the aforementioned Derby and Preakness winners, the Belmont is like a maddening jigsaw puzzle. This year the race will be missing some pretty big names from the previous two stake races, but it won't damper the atmosphere for horse racing enthusiasts. He was a finalist in last year's Eclipse voting for top jockey. It's the first time since 2010 that neither the Derby nor Preakness victor will run.

Pletcher thus took two of the three 2017 Triple Crown races, having saddled Always Dreaming to victory in the Derby.

"It's the nature of this business", Pletcher said. Pletcher's career stats in the Belmont Stakes now stand at 24: 3-5-3. Tapwrit's Belmont was Pletcher's third, after Palace Malice won it in 2013 and the filly Rags to Riches outdueled Curlin in 2007 in what remains one of the most goosebump-inducing sporting events I've witnessed live.

After the race, the mega-trainer said, "It's our home base and I think that's always an advantage". But we felt really good coming in that actually both horses were doing very well. The gelding - with Cloud Computing's connections of trainer Chad Brown and jockey Javier Castellano - wasn't nominated to the Triple Crown, so had to be supplemented to the Belmont for $75,000. Two of those involved oh-so-close photo finishes, when Commissioner missed by a head against Tonalist in 2014 and Destin was nipped by nothing more than Creator's nose a year ago.

"It was everything that we had talked about", Pletcher said. We kind of hoped that somebody else would go for it, but he had to go to Plan B and [jockey] Rajiv [Maragh] did a great job.

Classic Empire was fourth, Practical Joke fifth, Tapwrit sixth, Gunnevera seventh, McCraken eighth, Gormley ninth and Irish War Cry 10th.

Tapwrit, despite his lofty price tag, has been a work in progress since he finished at the back of the pack in a forgettable debut last September 3 at Saratoga Race Course.

Tapwrit captured his first victory since winning the Grade II Tampa Bay Derby on March 11 at Tampa Bay Downs in Oldsmar.

That was followed by two disappointing results. Stamping himself as a Triple Crown contender after powerfully annexing the GII Tampa Bay Derby Mar. 11, the $1.2 million Fasig-Tipton August buy was a tiresome fifth in the GII Toyota Blue Grass S. and ran sixth with traffic trouble in the GI Kentucky Derby May 6.

Pletcher, though, has been enthused with Ortiz's work.

"Unbelievable", Ortiz said after the race. "Today he showed up".

After setting pressured fractions of:23.88, :48.66, 1:14.01, and 1:38.95 through a mile, though, Irish War Cry had enough.

In the Belmont, Irish War Cry broke well from post 7 and again crossed over the horses inside of him to get to the front entering the first turn, but Meantime was only a head back on the outside after the first quarter.
