We went into the Belmont Stakes full confident in Tiz the Law after we won taking him in the last race – Florida Derby. We went with our top three horse picks for the day and we were able to come away with a clean 3-0 sweep. Let’s take a look back at the Belmont Stakes Results and review the KofSports picks from Saturday.

Belmont Picks:

Belmont Stakes Race 8 4:15 Post Time

Win Bet on Gamine (1) 1/1 ML

Gamine is a large favorite here ands a lot of that can be contributed to the connections on this horse. Anytime you see a Bob Baffert horse, you can expect that horse to be very live in the race. Baffert has an amazing 32% win rate and that is a great investment. It is great that this horse drew the rail in this race as he enjoys going right to the front. Take the money when you can.

Win Bet on Oleksandra (2) 7/2 ML

We are going to do a play on a little underdog here to try and get a price. Oleksandra will get Joel Rosario on the mount and this horse will need good early speed in order to win this race. If there were more horses expected to go to the fromnt and cause an early speed duel, this horse would be 2/1 on the morning line. A lot of times when you get races like this where horses aren’t used to going to the front, you can sometimes get horses on the front that aren’t accustomed to it, which can cause the early speed that we need. Oleksandra is coming off a very strong effort at Santa Anita in her last race which was coming off a 7 month lay off. I think she needed that race as a freshening and this race should be a perfect spot. Let’s try to get a price here.

Win Bet on Tiz the Law (8) 6/5 ML

We are law abiding citizens today in the big Belmont Stakes race! This is not the first time we’ve bet this horse as we also hammered him in the Florida Derby. Typically whichever horse wins the Florida Derby is the favorite at the Belmont Stakes as is the case here. Law should be very fresh here and will be looking to sit a nice stalking trip behind the early runners as he did in the Florida Derby. I knot it sucks picking a 6/5 favorite in the big race but he is well worth the price here.

Win Bet on Gamine (1) 1/1 ML – This one was an EASY blowout winner to start the day. Where were the other horse in this race? Where there even any other horses racing or was it just Gamine? If you only saw the end of this race, you literally wouldn’t believe that there were any other horses in this race. BLOWOUT WINNER.

Win Bet on Oleksandra (2) 7/2 ML – Looking back at this pick, Kyle Covers nailed this one right on the head. Oleksandra did exactly what we expected and sat back on the early speed then closed down the stretch. That’s the style runner Oleksandra is. This one was close but Oleksandra kept closing and came away with the victory by a slim margin. We needed this one for a little excitement since the other two picks were absolute blowout winners. This was a fun one to have money on and win in that fashion!

Win Bet on Tiz the Law (8) 6/5 ML – Obey the Law and take the money when you can. A lot of other horse handicappers tried to get cute in this race and take other horse just to try and prove smart people wrong. Smart people, like us, took the free money by hammering Tiz the Law for the second time this season. This probably won’t be the last time that we bet Tiz the Law after this blowout performance on the big stage.
