2016 Belmont Stakes odds: Exaggerator listed as the betting favorite for Belmont on Saturday

For the first time in five tries, Exaggerator finally vanquished rival Nyquist to hand the Kentucky Derby winner the initial loss of his career at the Preakness Stakes. Together with Nyquist’s coaches deciding to maintain the horse out of this Belmont, Exaggerator will go into the final Triple Crown race as the favorite to win.
Exaggerator is moving off at +125 to win the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, N.Y., at sportsbooks tracked by OddsShark.com. As a nearer which is accustomed to saving energy before the close of the race to make a late kick, Exaggerator’s racing mode needs to match up well with the menacing 1.5-mile span of the Belmont Stakes.
Early reports indicate that there could be rain as well, which would also work to Exaggerator’s favor because the horse has conducted three of his very best career races, including his win in the Preakness, on moist or wet tracks.
Some of Todd Pletcher horses will be expected to be contenders from the Belmont Stakes as Stradivari (+700 to win) and Destin (+900) will attempt to hunt down the favorite.
Stradivari was a popular mad choice in the Preakness, but ended up finishing fourth in that race. Destin finished in sixth place at the Kentucky Derby, but that was on the insides of a rough trip that included multiple bumps from a crowded area. With a cleaner excursion on Saturday, Destin could see a much better outcome.
The principal question for Exaggerator heading into the Belmont Stakes is whether the betting favorite can take care of the excess distance. In case the Preakness winner fades down the stretch, two strong closers that may hunt down him are Suddenbreakingnews (+700) and Cherry Wine (+800).
Suddenbreakingnews had a strong late kick at the Kentucky Derby to make a fifth-place complete, and Cherry Wine came in the rear of the pack to maneuver Nyquist for second place at the Preakness Stakes. With additional track to operate together, these horses may figure into the exotic stakes or even pull off an outright upset.
Rounding out the Belmont Stakes area are Brody’s Cause (+1400), Governor Malibu (+1400), Lani (+1600), Creator (+1600), Gettysburg (+4000), Seeking the Soul (+4000), Forever d’Oro (+4000), along with Trojan Nation (+4000).
