Predictions and Preview
Hot Rod Charlie may follow up his third-place finish at the Kentucky Derby by putting on another strong performance. The Derby result of Known Agenda’s ninth-place finish in the Derby could be a bounceback. Rock Your World still has a lot of work to do after finishing 17th in the Run for the Roses.
The Belmont Stakes will likely be decided by two horses: the colts with the lowest odds, Essential Quality and Rombauer.
Essential Quality was the favourite going into the Kentucky Derby. But he couldn’t catch the leaders and finished fourth. There are good reasons to believe that he is capable of winning the Belmont. That’s why he’s a favorite of 2-1.
What is the biggest? Essential Quality, who has won five of his first five career races before the Kentucky Derby, is the biggest winner.
According to Tim Wilkin, Horse Racing Nation, Brad Cox stated that this colt was all racehorse. He wins his races in many different ways. He can sit at a fast pace. He can keep up with the pace. He can adapt. He always brings it. He is going to win his race, and I’m pretty certain of that.”
Essential Quality will be difficult to beat if that is what happens.
Rombauer, who won the Preakness, enters the Belmont full of momentum. He won the Preakness and he won the Belmont. Rombauer also took Midnight Bourbon and Medina Spirit in the final stretch. This victory was Michael McCarthy’s first win in a Triple Crown event.
Rombauer hopes to win his first back-to-back races in his career. He may not be the favorite but his odds of winning another Triple Crown race are 3-1.Last Updated on October 11, 2021
