The third and final leg of the horse racing Triple Crown has arrived. This Saturday will see the 154th running of New York’s horse racing classic, and Belmont Stakes odds have opened for betting. It doesn’t lack for storylines either with Kentucky Derby sensation Rich Strike running after skipping the Preakness. To help handicap the eight-horse field, we’ll look Belmont Beyer Speed Figures to analyze which horses have run the strongest in their top-two performances and most recent race?

All eyes will be on Rich Strike after the Derby longshot made an incredible run out of nowhere to win after not even having enough points to enter the initial field, needing a scratch to draw into the starting gate. With no history of similar speed in his previous runs, it’s anyone’s guess what caliber of race Rich Strike will run here. The length of the Derby perhaps suited his hard close. If so, the even longer Belmont could represent another ideal situation, but what if the early pace isn’t as suicidal as it was in the Derby?

We The People enters as the favorite and has drawn the inside post. Speaking of horses with speed out of nowhere, he ran a 103 at the Peter Pan Stakes. But, his only other Grade 1 stakes race ended in disappointment with a seventh-place finish in a field of nine at the Arkansas Derby.

We will see Belmont Stakes filly with Nest! She has performed well in two Grade 1 starts, finishing second at Kentucky Oaks and first at Ashland Stakes. However, both came in filly-only fields and her BSFs look a step behind the top of this group.
