2024 Belmont Stakes

  • Antiquarian is the best longshot for the Belmont Stakes with +1400 odds to win.
  • This Todd Pletcher trained horse will be ridden by hall of fame jockey John Velazquez.
  • Sierra Leone’s the 2024 Belmont Stakes betting favorite but there are reasons to be concerned.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Betting odds for the 2024 Belmont Stakes favor Kentucky Derby runner-up Sierra Leone with +150 odds. However, we’re backing a legal sports betting longshot with +1400 odds as a true win contender on Saturday.

2024 Belmont Stakes Odds And Post Positions

  • 1. Seize The Grey +650
  • 2. Resilience +1000
  • 3. Mystik Dan +700
  • 4. The Wine Steward +2500
  • 5. Antiquarian +1400
  • 6. Dornoch +2200
  • 7. Protective +3500
  • 8. Honor Marie +1400
  • 9. Sierra Leone +150
  • 10. Mindframe +325

With plenty of popularity surrounding Sierra Leone (+150), Mindframe (+325), and Mystik Dan (+700), Antiquarian is flying under the radar for the Belmont Stakes. The Todd Pletcher trained horse posted an impressive win at the Peter Pan a month ago, the second win in three horse racing events for the three-year colt.

Antiquarian has a strong support group with four-time Belmont winner Todd Pletcher as trainer and hall of fame jockey John Velazquez. The last time these two worked in tandem with a horse was with the filly Rags to Riches in 2007, who seized victory at the Belmont Stakes.

Fading Belmont Stakes Betting Favorite Sierra Leone

Antiquarian horse has a similar career path as last year’s Belmont winner Arcangelo, who won the Peter Pan but flew under the radar due to top talent like Forte and Tapit Trice. A similar situation could occur again with Triple Crown betting sites placing more attention on Sierra Leone and Mindframe.

With Sierra Leone known to drift, trainer Chad Brown will implement new equipment for the horse at the Belmont Stakes. An equipment change this late in the game is a red flag and makes other options at better prices more appealing.
