The card on Saturday June, 8th at Belmont Park is all about the third leg of the Triple Crown the Belmont Stakes. The races prior to the Belmont Stakes are phenomenal offering what is the best undercard to any of the Triple Crown races. Below I will offer selections for all of the undercard races, and finally my selections for the Belmont Stakes including anaylsis. Good luck!

Race 11 $1,000,000 Belmont Stakes GI
1. Orb (3-1) I will stick with him after he disappointed greatly in the Preakness, track and distance should suit him
2. Freedom Child (8-1) This is a very talented colt who is going the right direction, very dangerous in here he will be sitting right off or on the lead.
3. Incognito (20-1) Worth the shot, the impeccably bred son of A.P. Indy should relish the distance, while he is a huge price he is improving and may enjoy the slop.

Longshot- Will Take Charge (20-1)

Horses to Throwout
 Oxbow (5-1)- distance and pace scenario do not benefit him
Revolutionary (9/2)- Being by War Pass I actually see distance limitations
Unlimited Budget (8-1)- Filly just is not good enough, distance will be a problem
Golden Soul (10-1)- Derby was a good performance, but need to see a similar effort to consider him here
