    Belmont Stakes (6/10/16)

    By Dan Zucker
    The 148th Belmont Stakes takes place on Saturday from legendary Belmont Park. Run at 12 furlongs (1.5 miles), which is longer than both the Derby and Preakness, the Belmont has been coined the test of Champions bringing many a Triple Crown contender to his knees.

    And while there is no American Pharoah, the 2016 Belmont Stakes is shaping up to be quite the betting race. The full field of 13 starters is headed by Preakness Winner, Exaggerator, just one of two starters to have raced in both the Derby and Preakness (Lani was the other).

    In 2015, over $80mm was wagered into the variety of wagering pools with an all sources handle on the day of $134mm, that's just north of the total Nevada handle on the 2016 Super Bowl. The point is this, liquidity brings opportunity and if you enjoy the track a couple of times a year, consider playing Belmont day (Breeders' Cup being the best wagering event in horse racing).
