The conclusion of the Triple Crown horse racing series is the Belmont Stakes. If a horse has won both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes it is now in contention for horse racing glory. All it needs to do is get around the track at Belmont Park and finish first. Then, a new page will be written in the horse racing history books. Many have tried, many have come close, but more often than not, winning the Belmont Stakes AND the Triple Crown can prove to be very elusive and almost mystical. Only a handful of horses have ever won the Triple Crown in the history of American horse racing, with the last winner in the 1970s. Will history be rewritten this year, or will a potential Triple Crown winner bust? You’ll have to bet and find out!

The track record at Belmont Park is held by none other than Secretariat, the mythical horse of the 1973 horse racing season that changed the sport forever. He is the lone horse in history to have broken the 2 minute barrier at Belmont Park, posting a record 1:59 time that has stood for over 40 years. Is it even possible to come close to Secretariat’s memorable performance? You would think so: surely the advances made in horse breeding, nutrition, and training would produce another top contender. Unfortunately, no one has ever come close to Secretariat’s achievements, and his records have never been broken. Will his record time fall this year at the Belmont Stakes? It would be an incredible feat it happened; and would captivate the hearts and minds of America much like Secretariat did in 1973.
We suggest signing up and depositing at one of our select horse racebooks well before the gates open at Belmont Park. Why? Well, if you’ve ever been at a horse racetrack, you’ve no doubt experienced the last minute rush to the betting window, which inevitably closes before some bettors can get their ticket in. Don’t let this happen to you when it comes time for Belmont Stakes betting. Instead, get your account setup, deposit funds, and then wait until the right moment before the race to place your bets. That way, you essentially circumvent the last minute crowd who leaves their credit card processing to chance (you never know when a sportsbook will lose its financial processing capabilities), and are sitting pretty just in time for the jockeys to be summoned to their horses. Make life easy, not difficult. Plan ahead and you’ll reap the financial rewards.
What happens after Belmont Stakes betting? The close of the Belmont Stakes signifies the end of the Triple Crown challenge, but that doesn’t mean horse racing betting is gone until next year. To the contrary, a number of exciting races can be found around the nation, some which are contested at Belmont Park, Pimlico, or Churchill Downs. Many of these races are “Grade 1” horse racing events, which means only select horses that have met certain criteria can race. The horse racing season essentially ends in November, when the Breeders’ Cup Challenge is held. So don’t worry if your racebook player’s account is loaded after a successful Belmont Stakes: there’re plenty of opportunities after June for making even more money if you can handicap horses correctly. Don’t forget, many online racebooks also offer wagering on harness racing events. Many top racetracks that offer harness racing have important races of their own, that are just as critical to the harness racing season as the Triple Crown is to standard horse racing.
Please be sure to review our list of USA racebook deposit options to fund your sportsbook player’s account. Don’t wait any longer, or else you risk getting lost in the last-minute crowd. Always fund your account a few days before the Belmont Stakes is slated to begin, and THEN make your bets as the race start draw near.
