Picks and Ponderings: Belmont Stakes Preview

It’s almost here — my favourite race of the Triple Crown, the Test of the Champion, the Belmont Stakes.  Over at Picks and Ponderings, Paul Mazur and I go point-counterpoint on the entire field of thirteen.

The horse in the field who has my #CurlinBabies heart is of course Exaggerator.  It would be so much fun to see

But, particularly without Nyquist in the field, Exaggerator will be short-priced to the point of underlay.  That hits especially strongly given Exaggerator’s closing style, something that typically does not suit the Belmont so well.

So, though my heart may be with the Preakness winner, my head says to focus on others who present far more betting value.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read our preview of the Belmont Stakes, and let us know what you think in the comments!
