Justify Triple Crown Gear

2019 Belmont Stakes Entries

Date: 06/04/2019

This year, the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes (G1) does not have a horse going for the Triple Crown, with Country House winning the Kentucky Derby and War of Will winning the Preakness Stakes. War of Will is the only horse in the race who will have run in all three Triple Crown races this year.

Entries closed and post positions were drawn on June 4th at Citi Field in Queens, home of the New York Mets baseball club. Tacitus is the 9-5 morning line favorite in the field of 10, and he drew the far outside 10 post for traine Bill Mott and jockey Jose Ortiz. After winning the Tampa Bay Derby (G2) and Wood Memorial (G2) he finished 4th in the Kentucky Derby (G1) but moved up to 3rd via the disqualification of Maximum Security. In to challenge him include 2-1 second choice War of Will, who was 8th (placed 7th) in the Derby after encountering interference, but came back to win the Preakness (G1). Regular rider Tyler Gaffalione will be in post 9 for trainer Mark Casse. The 8-1 third choice is Japanese invader Master Fencer who finished 7th (placed 6th) beaten just 4 lengths in the Derby. Julien Leparoux gets the call again out of post 3 for trainer Koichi Tsunoda. 10-1 Intrepid Heart (post 8) adds blinkers on Saturday while 12-1 Bourbon War (post 5) removes them.

Live television coverage will be provided from 3:00-5:00 p.m. on NBC Sports Network and 5:00-7:00 p.m. on NBC, with post time for the Belmont Stakes scheduled for 6:37 p.m. All times are Eastern time zone.
