Belmont Stakes post positions, odds announced

1 Comment

Rich Strike, the 80-1 Kentucky Derby upset winner, will break from the No. 4 spot in the 2022 Belmont Stakes after skipping the Preakness. Like in Kentucky five weeks ago, he isn’t the morning-line favorite, but he’s far from an underdog at 9-2 odds.

We the People opens as the 2-1 morning-line favorite. He’s trained by Rudy Brisset and will have Flavien Pratt in the irons. The son of Constitution went wire-to-wire in the Peter Pan (G3) at Belmont on May 14 in his most recent start.

Todd Pletcher fields Nest (8-1), who looks to become the fourth filly ever to win the Belmont. The last to win it was Rags to Riches in 2007, and a filly hasn’t even competed in the grueling final leg of the Triple Crown since 2013. Pletcher also has Mo Donegal (5-2), who finished fifth in the Derby last time out.

The 154th Belmont Stakes airs on Saturday, June 11 from 3-5 p.m. ET on CNBC and from 5-7 p.m. on NBC. Coverage is also available on NBCSports.com, Peacock and on the NBC Sports app.
