Belmont Stakes Expert Picks Analysis: “Betting the house” on a Triple Crown winner is a dicey proposition when it comes to the Belmont Stakes with so many Derby and Preakness winners not having a big enough gas tank to cash in. From a trainers perspective, their is no way to truly prepare a horse for the 1.5-mile distance of the Belmont Stakes. If history is any indication of what will happen, it should be noted that 13 out of 36 horses have won the Derby and Preakness have come up short at Belmont Park.

The rest of the Belmont field has not come close to beating the deep winded C.C. Todd Pletcher’s charge Commissioner is an intriguing entrant but neither Pletcher’s horse or Tonalist have the goods to knock off Chrome. Sometimes the “chalk” is the pick.
