The Belmont horses are listed so as of submit place, with feedback by Joe Drape and Melissa Hoppert of The New York Times. The morning-line odds had been set by David Aragona of the New York Racing Association.

Drape: This colt possesses the excessive cruising velocity that normally wins this race.

Trainer: Eric Reed Jockey: Sonny Leon Odds: 7-2

Drape: The shock Derby winner is coaching like a monster after skipping the Preakness. He ought to run nicely.

Trainer: Mark Casse Jockey: Dylan Davis Odds: 20-1

Drape: So far, he has not been adequate to beat his high-end friends.

Drape: This colt is a constant check-casher and shall be charging at the finish.
