If you’re placing a win bet on the Belmont Stakes, this might be a good day to check out advanced will pays for other wagers leading into the last leg of the Triple Crown.
That is because the Very Best 2 options — Tacitus (5-2) and War Will (9-2) — continue to hover over their projected morning line odds as of 1:15 p.m. ET. They could stay there, also, as federal pools seemed to market with on-track wagering showing just north of $1.9 million in win stakes placed.
Numbers are still effective at changing, so we’ll continue to monitor what has amounted to some balanced bag board to your 1??1/2-mile Belmont up until post time in 6:37 p.m.
Tacitus, a son of Tapit trained by Bill Mott, enters the Belmont. This year he won a pair of Tampa Bay Derby, the Wood Memorial and Grade 2 stakes.
The Preakness Stakes winner for trainer Mark Casse, war Will, is going to be the only horse to operate in all three legs of the Triple Crown. He’s also a winner of Fair Grounds’ Lecomte (G3) and Risen Star (G2) this year.
