Belmont Stakes Odds - The horse with a name that everyone loves to say has a good chance to hit the board in New York in a couple weeks. Vino Rosso is going to be a popular pick to finish in the top three at the Belmont Stakes, and some may even have him as their choice to usurp Justify. He has already won in New York once this season, winning a thriller at the Wood Memorial Stakes back in April, and closed strong at the Kentucky Derby.
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.

Vino Rosso was sired by the legendary Curlin. Curlin was a horse known for being able to go the distance. He finished his career with over $10 million in earnings and won the Preakness Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup Classic. He has been a very good sire too and also is the father to Good Magic. Vino Rosso’s dam was Mythical Bride.
His trainer is Todd Pletcher. Pletcher has had three horses win the Belmont Stakes in the last decade. Rags to Riches (2007), Palace Malice (2013), and Tapwrit (2017) all picked up victories here. Pletcher knows how to coach horses for this long race.
John Velazquez will be the jockey for Vino Rosso. Velazquez has won the Belmont Stakes twice and has rode the horse in his six previous outings.
Why Vino Rosso Will Win the Belmont Stakes
The way that Vino Rosso closed at the Kentucky Derby was impressive. He wasn’t able to finish in the money, but he passed nine horses down the stretch after a lousy start to finish in ninth. That closing speed should help him at a 1.5-mile race.
This horse has decent speed too. He has twice posted a 100 speed rating or better, and Vino Rosso will have a chance provided he is able to hang close enough to the leaders coming into the backstretch.
Why Vino Rosso Won't Win the Belmont Stakes
He has yet to hit the board in a Grade 1 Stakes Race. Vino Rosso was able to beat Enticed at the Wood Memorial, but he did not perform well against lesser competition prior to his performance in the Kentucky Derby. There, he did not inspire a ton of confidence for the first mile before closing strong at the end. He needs to prove that he can hang with the speedsters for the first part of the race.
The Final Verdict
There might be some value in Vino Rosso here. His 10-1 odds may be a little light, and he has a good chance to hit the board. He is worth throwing into some exotics.
