And there under starters orders! The Belmont Stakes is the final race of the American Triple Crown, as 13 horses go head-to-head to finish first past the post at Belmont Park in New York. This year, Exaggerator is the clear favorite after his masterful performance at the Preakness Stakes. He certainly will be the horse to beat come race-time. Want to see if he does it?

Sadly, we won’t get to see a repeat of the battle between Nyquist and Exaggerator in this one. The Kentucky Derby winner was pulled out of the race after falling sick with a fever. He’s been given a little bit of time off to recover, and who can blame his trainers’ decision.
But that doesn’t mean Exaggerator will have the race all his own way! Expect him to be challenged by Suddenbreakingnews and Stradivari, who are both rated at 7-1 to win. Still, if you are banking on Exaggerator, don’t expect to get too long odds — currently they stand at 5-4, and they’re only getting narrower!
We’re a little disappointed we couldn’t see Nyquist and Exaggerator going head-to-head again, that would’ve been absolutely epic! But still, we hope for a good race and that no horses get hurt.
