Despite the fact that the two horses (Super Saver the 2010 Kentucky Derby winner and Lookin At Lucky the 2010 Preakness Stakes winner) which won the first two legs of the Triple Crown are not racing today, there is an exciting list of potential 2010 Belmont Stakes Contenders for bettors to get interested in.
Among the top 2010 Belmont Stakes Favorites are Ice Box listed at 9 to 4 odds and First Dude listed at 9 to 2 odds. Ice Box is the morning line favorite but the horse racing betting experts polled by Sports-Odds.com today all agree that First Due will get considerable betting action as the day progresses closer to race.
There are a few 2010 Belmont Stakes Contenders that bettors should consider that could end up in the money and that offer horse racing bettors decent payouts should they win. The first such horse is Dave in Dixie at 20 to 1 odds on the morning line. Dave in Dixie drew the first post position and is being ridden by Calvin Borel, a veteran jockey notorious for winning in the Triple Crown and for loving the rail.
Another one of the 2010 Belmont Stakes Contenders that need a series look is Fly Down at 5 to 1 odds on the morning line. John Velazquez will get the mount from the fifth post position. Velazquez is an experienced jockey that is looking to redeem his disappointing 2010 Triple Crown racing performances.
