Belmont Stakes Betting: Orb is Horse to Beat Again

After winning a fifth-straight race as the favorite at the Kentucky Derby, Orb was a mammoth 3/5 favorite at the second leg of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes. However, a tough Post 1 draw saw Orb get stuck on the inside and not be a major factor in the race, finishing fourth.

Oddsmakers still believe in the colt as he is an opening 5/2 favorite to win Saturday’s 145th Belmont Stakes, the longest of the Triple Crown races at 1 1/2 miles. Oxbow, who won the Preakness at 15/1, is a 6/1 third-favorite. Revolutionary, third at the Derby, is 5/1.
