Three Horses Beat Chrome
June 4, 2014 by staff
Three Horses Beat Chrome, California Chrome’s bid to win the Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes on June 7 has captured the attention of both the media and casual sports fans, and that’s a great thing for horse racing.
But serious horseplayers have never needed a Triple Crown possibility to know the value of the Belmont Stakes. This final leg of the Triple Crown has an excellent record for producing profitable winners.
Three times in the last five years, the winner of the Belmont Stakes has done so at a price between $25-$30 for a $2 win bet. I refer to Summer Bird in 2009 ($25.80), Drosselmeyer in 2010 ($28) and Palace Malice in 2013 ($29.60).
I want to focus on these three horses and their potential counterparts in the 2014 Belmont Stakes field. I certainly don’t mean to exclude Ruler On Ice, who cashed at a whopping $51.50 in 2011, but he was counterbalanced by Union Rags, who won at a short $7.50 price one year later.
