Update: Final positions determined, Classic Empire out with abscess.

12 horses are scheduled to run this Saturday at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. This race has plenty of great betting opportunities despite the absence of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winners. Remember, every race presents an opportunity to win. Play the ponies right and ignore the hype.

Win – Looking at Lee

A solid 2nd at the Derby and 4th at the Preakness means you should also be “Looking at Lee”. 🙂 Now he’s well primed to win the Belmont, having raced against top competition this season. Fun fact: He’s finished top 3 in every Graded Stakes race since September 17, 2016, except for a 4th place stumble at the Preakness. With Always Dreaming and Cloud Computing looking to other races, this is Lee’s chance to prevail.

Place – Epicharis

Epicharis hasn’t won a Graded Stakes event this year. But that doesn’t make him a risky bet this Saturday. He finished second at the Grade 2 UAE Derby on March 25, 2017 to Thunder Snow. Before that he won the February 19, 2017 Hyacinth Stakes in Tokyo. Many think he’d be lucky to hit the board. I’m more optimistic on this horse and have already witnessed him defeat better USA thoroughbreds.

Show – Senior Investment

This 3 year old colt has more races to his credit than both Looking at Lee and Epicharis. However he’s more inconsistent than his competitors. He either places top 7 or wins. On January 27 he was 7th at a Fair Grounds race. 3 weeks later on February 18 he won at Oaklawn Park. That cued him up to finish 6th at the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby. True to form, he came back April 15 to win the Grade 3 Lexington at Keeneland. Then he reverted to the mean to finish 3rd at the Preakness. So let’s call him a fabulous candidate for a Trifecta or Superfecta Wheel, but too flaky for a win, place or show.

Alternate – Classic Empire – Out With Abscess

Update: Classic Empire is out, I recommend Irish War Cry as alternate.

Classic Empire has disappointed me, being a heavy favorite for both the Kentucky Derby (4th) and Preakness (2nd). His past performances foreshadowed immense potential, including victories at the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile, Breeder’s Cup Futurity, and Arkansas Derby. He was third at the Holy Bull Stakes on February 4, 2017, behind Irish War Cry and Gunnevera. I honestly don’t know what to expect with Classic this Saturday, so he’s relegated to Alternate. I would add him to any Exacta, Trifecta or Superfecta Box or Wheel bet. But a Win, Place or Show pick seems too risky to me.

Giddy Up Horse Bettors! The final leg of the Triple Crown is here. Though both the Derby and Preakness winners are out, there’s still plenty of money to be made. Here’s my 2017 Belmont Stakes Quinella Box pick.

Bob Seltzer’s 2017 Belmont Stakes Quinella Box Picks

  • Box: Lookin at Lee, Epicharis, Irish War Cry, Tapwrit, Twisted Tom, Gormley
  • Alternates: Meantime, Senior Investment

Total Cost: $30, $2 per combination or $15, $1 per combination
Note: A Quinella Box is really just adding more horses to a basic Quinella bet

What are Quinella Box Bets?

Quinella Box Bet: Pick any number of horses to finish in the top 2 positions. Final order does not matter.

Bob’s Advice: Manage Your Money Smart and Bet Smarter!

Quinella Boxes are more likely to win because you can pick more than 2 horses and order does not matter. A box is less efficient because you end up buying more combinations than you need. This isn’t a good long term betting strategy. It is only helpful in races like the Belmont with more than 10 competitors. As of today, there are 14 horses scheduled to run. Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming and Preakness winner Cloud Computing will both be in the barn. It’s anyone’s race to win.

The Triple Crown is officially out of contention because Always Dreaming didn’t win the Preakness. It’s no surprise he’s sitting the Belmont out. Other racing opportunities beckon this summer. Long shot Cloud Computing finished the Preakness strong, upsetting many bettors’ trifecta and superfecta tickets. This horse was my Preakness Quinella Box bet alternate. Unfortunately I didn’t include him either. Shucks. 🙁

Now only a few horses have actually run all 3 Triple Crown events, including Classic Empire, Irish War Cry and Lookin At Lee. I should note Classic Empire has been one of the favorites in each race. But his presence hasn’t been felt yet at the finish line.

Does that mean a dark horse could prevail? Yes and that’s why I’ve included a couple less probable horses in my Quinella Box.

A 6 horse Quinella Box costs $30, $2 per combination. Some tracks offer $1 Quinellas. That means your 6 horse box costs $15, $1 per combination.
