3 Horses to Bet Your Money on at Belmont Stakes

Matt KingFeatured ColumnistMay 31, 2012

The Belmont Stakes has become must-see TV with I'll Have Another racing towards potentially the first Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing since 1978. It's time to root for a bunch of old rich people to get even richer.

If you want to get richer though, you have to figure out the right horses to put your trust in and your money on. Obviously you'd be a fool to leave out I'll Have Another. He's proven himself to be the horse to beat and has already cost me enough money in 2012 for me not to bet on him.

For the others, it's a matter of whether or not you want to go straight chalk. The other two favorites are ones you're familiar with from the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, but if you're looking to go outside the box, I've got a name that I think may have some potential.
