Pretty clear the excitement for this Belmont.. we have another chance to see a horse compete for the triple crown sweep. It's a rare feat for a horse to win both at the Kentucky Derby and Preakness just to get the chance for the Triple Crown title. It has happened a few times the last 5 or so years. But historically it's very rare. And it's only ever been swept 12 times in 100 years.
Odds are very strong that Justify can accomplish this. No other horse even comes close. At the moment Justify is a 5/7 favorite with the next closest being Hofburg at a 6/1 chance.
I think it'll happen. Justify will become lucky number 13 to make the sweep. Should be an exciting race. Recommend tuning in on NBC on the 9th of June around 6:30pm EST to see if it happens or not. The race will only last a few minutes.
