Belmont Stakes 2019 odds, field, complete betting guide

An inside look at how the 2019 Belmont Stakes will shape up:

Joevia (30-1)

Trainer: Gregg Sacco

Jockey: Jose Lezcano

Current Form: Dialed back to 1 1/16 miles and won a 100k, wire to wire at Monmouth. Tired badly previously in the longer Wood Memorial.

Worth a wager? Most likely candidate to inherit the lead, then yield it, in a field of closers. Distance an issue. Loves it wet, trouble is there’s no rain in forecast. Last of 10.

Everfast (12-1)

Trainer: Dale Romans

Jockey: Luis Saez

Current Form: Career 1-for-11 but nearly shocked the racing world, placing second to War of Will in the Preakness after falling 22 lengths behind.

Worth a wager? Thought trainer Dale Romans had no business running him in the Preakness. I was wrong. Longer distance should entice betting public. Ugly spring preps tell us no. Ninth.

Master Fencer (8-1)

Trainer: Koichi Tsunoda

Jockey: Julien Leparoux

Current Form: Broke last of 19 at Churchill Downs before launching a nice run at 58-1 to get within four lengths of Maximum Security.

Worth a wager? Jockey Julien Leparoux after the Derby, “I needed another furlong.” Japan bred lost weight making trip overseas but raced well in Derby. Gets more ground. Gets outkicked. Eighth.

Tax (15-1)

Trainer: Danny Gargan

Jockey: Irad Ortiz Jr.

Current Form: Taxing trip (mud/traffic) riding the dreaded rail in the Derby and finished an invisible 15th. Only a length back of Tacitus in the Wood Memorial.

Worth a wager? Do we throw out the Derby and look back to his performance in the Wood? Trainer Danny Gargan after Tax’s last work: “He looked like a million dollars out there this morning.” Fifth.

Bourbon War (12-1)

Trainer: Marring Hennig

Jockey: Mike Smith

Current Form: Never fought, running evenly midpack in the Preakness after taking an exorbitant amount of money at the windows, including unfortunately, this handicapper’s.

Worth a wager? I’ve soured. No-show had trainer Mark Hennig confused. “He wasn’t tired after the race. Held him for a bath and he bit me in the stomach. He was angry.” I’m angry too. Sixth.

Spinoff (15-1)

Trainer: Todd Pletcher

Jockey: Javier Castellano

Current Form: Ran to his odds of 52-1 in the Derby but was parked wide nearly the entire trip. Close second in the Louisiana Derby previously.

Worth a wager? No, he wasn’t going to win the Derby with a clean trip. Toss it nonetheless. Wins were earned sitting just off the pace. Javier Castellano will have him in the early mix. Seventh.

Sir Winston (12-1)

Trainer: Mark Casse

Jockey: Joel Rosario

Current Form: Slow from the gate, he rallied boldly from 11 lengths back to place second in the Peter Pan at Belmont. Earned a triple-digit fig for his effort.

Worth a wager? Truest stretch runner in field will be hiding early then try to outkick Tacitus and War of Will. Trainer Mark Casse: “He’s truly a 1 ¹/₂ -mile horse.” At this price we’re in. Winner.

Intrepid Heart (10-1)

Trainer: Todd Pletcher

Jockey: John Velazquez

Current Form: Won his initial pair then showed third as favorite in the Peter Pan, about five lengths back of Sir Winston after a stumbling start.

Worth a wager? Had time to recover from the bad break but never did. Love Sir Winston, so he must be considered after the gate trouble. Todd Pletcher adds blinkers. Fourth.

War Of Will (2-1)

Trainer: Mark Casse

Jockey: Tyler Gaffalione

Current Form: Showed his true ability powering off the pace to take the Preakness. Positioned to pounce in the Derby, but “the incident” at the top of the stretch forced him to check out.

Worth a wager? Fiasco forgotten. We all witnessed what “WOW” can do when given a clean lane. Casse said he’s put on 40-50 pounds since. Looms large late. Second.

Tacitus (9-5)

Trainer: Bill Mott

Jockey: Jose Ortiz

Current Form: Made it three wins in a row in the Wood Memorial. Took impressive streak to Kentucky and made a late run for fourth (third via DQ) in the Derby.

Worth a wager? Solid effort at Churchill considering where he rallied from in the sloppy conditions. Bill Mott: “He ate a lot of mud.” M/L favorite is bred for distance. Third.
