Belmont Stakes Odds - After sitting out of the Preakness Stakes, Audible is considered the horse with the best chance to stop Justify from winning the Triple Crown. He won the last two big races he participated in prior to finishing third at the Kentucky Derby, and he had a good run at the Derby. However, there is a chance that he doesn’t get the chance to run at all. His owners also own Justify, and they may not want one of their own horses to stop Justify’s bid at the Triple Crown.
The Belmont Stakes will go to post on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at 6:37 p.m. ET at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Catch the Belmont Stakes live on NBC.

Audible was sired by Into Mischief and his dam is Blue Devil Bel. Into Mischief only ran in three races, but he has been one of the most prodigious sires over the last couple years. He has sired 35 stakes winners and his progeny have earned nearly $34 million in prize money.
This horse is trained by Todd Pletcher. Pletcher is one of the top trainers in the world today and he has trained three Belmont Stakes winners in the past. He led Rags to Riches, Palace Malice, and last year’s winner, Tapwrit, to the Winner’s Circle.
Javier Castellano will be Audible’s jockey for the Belmont Stakes. Pletcher has also used John Velasquez in the past, but it seems that Castellano will be the pick for the Belmont. He is one of the more experienced jockeys in the field. However, he has yet to win a Belmont Stakes, even as he was given the Eclipse Award for four straight seasons from 2013 to 2016.
Why Audible Will Win the Belmont Stakes
Prior to the Kentucky Derby, Audible posted the best speed numbers east of the Mississippi. He won the Holy Bull Stakes and the Florida Derby with ratings of 105 and 107. Audible is one of the best closers, and he should have the stamina to go the distance in New York.
Having an extra two weeks off should help him out. Finishing the Triple Crown with the longest of the three races has made winning all three major races extremely difficult, and that gives Audible a good chance.
Why Audible Won't Win the Belmont Stakes
His biggest threat may be his ownership group. If Justify were to come in second place to Audible at the Belmont Stakes, they would be second-guessed by many in the industry. Given how rare it is to win the Triple Crown, they are very incentivized to give Justify the best possible chance of winning.
The Final Verdict
As long as he runs, I think that Audible has a great chance to win the Belmont Stakes. He has the speed and the stamina to compete, and the extra rest makes him a very appealing option.
