Most Successful Belmont Jockeys

The 1 1/2 miles Belmont Stakes is the longest distance most horses in the field will ever race. Add to this the final stretch of over 1000 feet – one of the longest in North America – and you can see why the jocks need be experienced and understand the pace of the race for a shot of winning. Use up too much of your mount’s energy early and you’ll have nothing left for the end. Go too slow, and you may fall too far behind the leaders to catch up. 

Historically good Belmont Stakes jockeys



Whether you’re betting the Belmont and picking up win-or-lose cash back or a deposit bonus through Bovada or another recommended online racebook, consider the jockeys in your handicapping strategy. The Belmont is a unique race on a unique track, and experience counts to win at Big Sandy.
