Belmont Stakes Line Up

In this, the most unique of racing seasons, the Belmont Stakes — traditionally the last and longest of the three Triple Crown races for 3-year-olds — will for the first time ever, lead-off the classic season while running at the shortest distance of the three jewels.

A field of 10 was entered in the Belmont, which this year has been shortened to 1 1/8-miles from its usual mile-and-a-half Test of a Champion.  The Post-Position draw for the Belmont was held at twelve noon today (Wednesday).

Here then is the field in Post Position order with Jockey and Morning Line odds:

1. TAP IT TO WIN                John Velasquez         6-1

2. SOLE VOLANTE              Luca Panici                 9-2

3. MAX PLAYER                  Joel Rosario               15-1

4. MODERNIST                   Junior Alvarado        15-1

5. FARMINGTON ROAD    Javier Castellano      15-1

6. FORE LEFT                     Jose Ortiz                    30-1

7. JUNGLE RUNNER          Reylu Gutierrez         50-1

8. TIZ THE LAW                 Manny Franco           6-5

9. DR POST                         Irad Ortiz Jr.                5-1

10. PNEUMATIC                 Ricardo Santana Jr.   8-1

So that’s a brief look at the field for the Bizarro World, 2020 Belmont Stakes.

On Friday the Daily Racing Blog will take a closer look at each of the runners, and see if we can find a contender who can upset the venerable favorite TIZ THE LAW.

So be sure to stop back and compare your picks with ours.
