Tiz The Law Remains Belmont Favorite Despite Being In Gate 8

  • The Belmont Stakes racehorse positions have been posted and are likely to affect betting lines.
  • The horse with the shortest odds, Tiz The Law (-135), has been given the 8th gate, where only 5 horses have ever won.
  • Most horses have won running from the 1st gate, which will be Tap It To Win (+600) this year.

ELMONT, N.Y. - The Belmont Stakes will kick off this weekend and the official positions for the racehorses have been announced.

This is important to note for horse race bettors, as history has proven that the gate a horse runs from greatly affects the results of the race.

Tiz The Law has the shortest odds to win the Belmont Stakes but is running from one of the most unfavorable positions.

Belmont Stakes Positions

The Belmont Stakes will be the first of the Triple Crown races this year following the postponement of the Preakness Stakes and the Kentucky Derby due to COVID-19.

Horse race bettors have made Tiz The Law the overwhelming favorite to win since injuries took out Charlatan, Nadal, and Maxfield from the race.

The race became a lot more difficult for the thoroughbred, however, as Tiz The Law has been assigned the 8th gate in the race.
