Belmont Stakes Odds - There aren’t many horses with the same experience that Bravazo has in this field. Bravazo is used to racing at this point. He has participated in 10 races over the last nine months, and he has proven himself to be capable in spots. This horse won the Risen Star Stakes and came in second place as a two-year-old at the Breeders’ Futurity.
The best performance of his career came at Pimlico last week. There, Bravazo was able to edge Tenfold to come in second place at the Preakness Stakes. He ended up just a ½ length behind Justify, and he really came on strong at the end in that race. Many will be predicting him to win the Belmont Stakes.
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.

Bravazo was sired by Awesome Again and his dam is Tiz o’ Gold. Awesome Again finished his racing career as one of the best Canadian racehorses ever. His time as a sire has been successful too. One of his offspring, Oxbow, won the 2013 Preakness Stakes and Bravazo just finished second. He has yet to have a horse win the Belmont though.
D. Wayne Lukas is Bravazo’s trainer. Lukas has had a storied career as a trainer, but he has had just one horse win a Triple Crown race since 2000. That horse was Oxbow, and he has not had another winner since the 2000 Belmont Stakes.
Jockey Luis Contreras will be on Bravazo for this race. Contreras has not had a lot of experience at Triple Crown races, and he will be one of the lesser-experienced jockeys here.
Why Bravazo Will Win the Belmont Stakes
The way that Bravazo was able to close at the end of the Preakness was impressive. If he had another 1/16 of a mile, he would have likely been able to catch Justify. However, he turned it on a bit too late. That kick showed that he has the stamina to carry the day though.
Why Bravazo Won't Win the Belmont Stakes
This horse has a pattern of racing well when he’s a longshot, but completely missing the board when he’s considered one of the better horses in the field. He finished eighth at the Louisiana Derby and sixth at the Kentucky Derby before the Preakness finish.
The Final Verdict
If Bravazo were 10-1 or more, there would be some value on him. At these odds, there is no real reason to wager on him though. Stay away.
