This week’s look at the Triple Crown will focus on the trainers. Who has been able to prepare their horse to go the 12 furlongs over the sandy Belmont surface.  

D Wayne Lucas trainer of the Ethereal Road who currently sits at 8 to 1 according to our partner JazzSports has won four Belmonts with the most recent in 2000.  

Todd Pletcher, a former Lucas assistant has won three and will saddle Mo Donegal who is 2 to 1, and the filly Nest who currently sits at 9/1.

Kenny McPeek won the 2002 edition and will saddle 11 to 2 shots, Creative Minister.  Lastly is 2019 winner Mark Casse who has a longshot Golden Glider at 25 to 1.

Next up will be the Belmont Stakes on June 11th and we will get to see Rich Strike, yes the Kentucky Derby winner. We spoke to our partners at Jazz Sports and they report that Skippylongstocking has dropped from 25 to 1 down to 18 to 1.  

Creative Minister and Barber Road have risen slightly. Rich Strike is taking the most action after his Kentucky Derby victory.
