2020 Belmont Stakes Presents Wagering Opportunity in Colorado

Marquee sporting events and popular sports leagues slowly continue to make a comeback following a prolonged absence, so the ability to bet on the Belmont Stakes in Colorado comes as welcomed news.

For the first time ever, the Belmont Stakes will serve as the opening leg of horse racing’s storied Triple Crown. Typically, the Belmont Stakes act as the final leg, but the Kentucky Derby (September 5) and Preakness (October 3) have each been rescheduled until later this year.

The Belmont Stakes are New York’s first sanctioned sporting event since March 12 when concerns over the coronavirus shutdown the Big East Tournament. Uncertainty lingered regarding the future of this year’s Belmont Stakes until mid-May when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gave the go-ahead for racing to resume on June 1 without fans.

There will be two major differences in this year’s race. First, there will be no spectators in attendance, so the day will proceed without the typical fanfare (or in-person bets). Moreover, the race has been shortened from the previous 1 1/2 mile race to 1 1/8 miles.

Online betting for the 2020 Belmont Stakes figures to be a big draw, particularly in Colorado, so let’s break down everything that you need to know.

2020 Belmont Stakes Odds

This year’s Belmont Stakes features a 10-horse field for a shortened 1 1/8 mile race. The race was abbreviated to account for training alterations given the unprecedented schedule. It will be ran without some notable horses that began the year as top Triple Crown contenders. Charlatan and Maxfield are out with ankle injuries, while Nadal has since retired.

These absences pave the way for what many expect to be a wide open field. Currently, Tiz The Law is the favorite at 6-5 odds. Here’s a complete look at the current Belmont Stakes odds:
