The Different Types of Belmont Stakes Betting Game

As mentioned, the Belmont Stakes betting game offers various categories that you can choose and play where you can show your best betting prowess. The “Win”, “Place”, and “Show” are the most common and easiest way of placing a bet. On the other hand, if you want an extra-added fun and exciting betting game, there are other options you can take. Let’s tackle them one by one.


In order to win this betting game, you must pick the horse racer which can emerge as the first place or second place in the right and exact order.


This will demand your ability to pick those horse racers which will place first, second, and third in the right order.


This one is the same with the categories listed above where you need to pick four horses which can finish in the right order, but you have to pick four entries.


This one’s a bit challenging since you need to select five horse racers to win in the right order. However, what makes this betting category different from the first three categories is that you can box your Exacta bet. Which means that if you are able to pick two horse racers in your five selection and they finish first and second exactly, then you can still win. Same with Trifecta and Superfecta, you can also box them if you want in this betting category.

So, as you take part in the upcoming Belmont Stakes, it is inevitable that you’ll find each odd close to one another. Take note that the horse racers who will run in Elmont Park by June 8 were superstars of different horse racing tournament and it is expected that everyone will show off their best saddling skills.

Moreover, War of Will which was the recent Preakness Stakes winner is also expected to get the best and highest betting value. This is due to the fact that he had shown undebatable win in the racetrack of Pimlico Park last May 18 unlike for the Kentucky Derby which had deemed a very controversial season this year.

On the other hand, while the exciting vibe is now filling the arena of Elmont Park, it is also expected that there will be no Triple Crown Winner this year. Even if War of Will is still going to win the Belmont Stakes this year, he won’t still get the right of becoming the Triple Crown Winner. Take note that a horse racer needs to complete the three main legs of the Triple Crown Showdown and he needs to be the first placer in this three given event. It might be sad for the horse racing community not to expect a Triple Crown superstar this year, but the betting game would still give them the ability to enjoy the upcoming racing game.
