Belmont Stakes: American Pharoah Captures The Triple Crown Championship

Belmont Stakes: American Pharoah Captures The Triple Crown Championship

American Pharoah: Test of the Champion chalk

Can he run in the slop? Can he beat speed horses on a fast track? Can he win without a perfect trip? Can he win with the lead? Can he go four wide and track down the field? Can he win from a far outside post? Can he win starting on the rail? The answer from American Pharoah has been an emphatic YES to every one of those previously asked questions. Can he bounce back with a third brilliant run in five weeks and handle the mile and a half at Big Sandy are the final two Triple Crown questions. If the answer is yes to the first question, note that the Ruler of the Racetrack has looked superb and comfortable since arriving at Belmont Park on Tuesday, the distance will not be an issue for him.

Frosted and Materiality attempt to ruin the Rulers' coronation 

Opening with low odds, which have been slowly sinking ever since, American Pharoah is monster chalk on the sportsbook wagering board at TopBet. There are however seven other runners who are also in the biggest race of their life. Frosted, who pulled away late to win the G1 Wood Memorial in his final prep before the Derby was a hard charging fourth though never a threat to AP in Kentucky. Following a fantastic duel with Upstart (18th in the Derby) in the G1 Florida Derby, Materiality had a rough start out of the gate at Churchill Downs but fought back bravely to finish sixth during the Run for the Roses.

Belmont Stakes Prediction: The last time the odds on favorite won the Test of the Champion, Afleet Alex (Sire of Materiality) won the Preakness and then romped home in the Belmont Stakes back in 2005. A mix of rested and new shooters have paid off handsomely in the past as the average odds of the Belmont winners are 17-1 since 2000. We understand that there are major hurdles still  to be crossed but everything we said about American Pharoah three weeks ago still holds true today. The Ruler of the Race Track will win the Belmont Stakes and capture the Triple Crown.
