Most Belmont Stakes Jockey Wins

Since 2010, only three jockeys have won multiple times at the Belmont Stakes.

That was Mike Smith with Justify (2018), Palace Malice (2013), and Drosselmeyer (2010).

And Joel Rosario won in 2019 with Sir Winston and in 2014 with Tonalist.

But winning on Essential Quality last Year Irad Ortiz Jr added his name to that group having also won in 2016 on American Pharoah.

Most Belmont Stakes Trainer Wins

2021 was also a first-time Belmont Stakes win for trainer Brad H Cox.

He has a long way to go to catch the all-time leader of James Rowe who has trained eight winning Belmont horses. The last coming in 1931.

But Todd Pletcher is doing his best to close that gap, now with four Belmont wins, as the trainer of Essential Quality in 2022. Can he make it five in 2023?

A win bet is pretty straightforward. If you bet on a horse to win they need to finish in first place.

If you bet on a horse to place, the payout will be smaller, but they can finish in the top two.

A bet on a horse to show means they can come in either first, second or third.

Exacta, Trifecta & Superfecta Preakness Stakes Bets

The parlays of horse betting are the exotic bets that often include exactas. trifectas and superfectas.

In an exacta, you’re picking two horses that need to both finish in the top two in exact order.

A trifecta is picking three horses to finish in the top three in a certain order. And finally, a superfecta is picking four horses to finish in the top four in the correct order.

You are also able to “box” any of these options where they can finish in top two, three or four in any order.
