There is no Triple Crown at stake this week, but the Belmont Stakes is a fascinating and complex handicap. Host Adam Burke enlisted the assistance of horse betting expert Brian Blessing to break down the 10-horse field for Saturday’s race. The guys looked at favorites Tacitus and War of Will and wound up talking themselves into some of the double-digit shots on the card.
They talked about the key betting angles and tips to remember with the longest race that most of these horses will run in their careers. They looked at some exotic wagering angles and talked about all 10 of the horses and looked at strengths and weaknesses. Finally, the guys discussed the Acorn Stakes very briefly, with an interesting field for Saturday afternoon’s filly race.
