The sports calendar this year is turned upside down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A lot of notable sporting events were suspended. However, for the horse racing community, there’s a ray of light to anticipate as the Triple Crown Series will now take its comeback, allowing thoroughbred debutants to establish their racing career.
In line with that, the Belmont Stakes is scheduled on June 20, 2020, to grace the show away from the usual placement. Also, the Kentucky Derby will take the middle jewel happening on September 5, 2020. Meanwhile, the Preakness Stakes, which has the shortest running distance, will be the culminating event on October 3, 2020.
With the given rare edition of this year’s Triple Crown showdown, the Belmont Stakes will only accept sixteen horses competing in the field. That said, here are the current Belmont Stakes horse race 2020 picks and their odds value to get you guided by who deserves your wager in all the betting games you will participate in.

On top of this, Charlatan is the current Arkansas Derby titleholder.
The one taking the third spot in the Belmont Stakes odds ranking is Maxfield. He currently earns an odds value of +450 after participating in a single stakes race event last May 23, 2020.
