Belmont Stakes field

Bettors flipping the calendar now stare at June’s biggest landmark, the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes June 10 at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. The Belmont Stakes field for 2024 was initially set at nine horses.

The date sneaks up on many fans because there will be no Triple Crown winner this year. Victories by Mage in the Kentucky Derby and National Treasure in the Preakness Stakes ensure that the Triple Crown will remain not swept since Justify did the trick in 2018.

With or without a Triple Crown at stake, however, the Belmont is a major destination in thoroughbred racing. As the race closes in, handicappers ponder the probables list entering the final week.

How big is the Belmont Stakes field?

The Belmont Stakes field is typically 8-10 horses. Last year’s Belmont Stakes field featured 9 horses. This is a much smaller field than the Kentucky Derby, which usually runs 20 horses, but is about on par with the Preakness – which usually runs 8 horses.

Horse racing wagers and bets

In addition to the traditional “straight” wagers (Win, Place, Show), fans can also attempt to cash big in the various “exotic” pools. Exacta (first two), Trifecta (first three) and Superfecta (first four) wagering are all offered, and cashing a ticket in any of these pools can produce a bigger payday.

  • Win: Bet on the horse you think you will win the Belmont Stakes.
  • Place: Get paid the place price if your horse finishes first or second.
  • Show: A show bet pays the least, but you win and get paid the show price if your horse finishes first, second or third.
  • Exacta: Predict the first two horses in the correct order.
  • Trifecta: Predict the first three horses in the correct order.
  • Superfecta: Predict the first four horses in the correct order.
  • Super High Five: Predict the first five horses in the correct order.

The Belmont Stakes betting odds are finally determined by the pari-mutuel system at the track which means your potential payout depends on how much money is in the pot overall, divided by how many bets are placed. The odds will fluctuate in the build-up to the race and never more so than in the final few moments before post time.
