The 2013 Belmont Stakes contenders include some familiar names and horse bettors should be in for an exciting final race of the Triple Crown. This year "ORB" was the Triple Crown hopeful, until OXBOW took the win in the Preakness Stakes setting off a great return from retirement by jockey Gary Stevens.
According the the current Belmont Stakes odds, the Kentucky Derby winner ORB heads into the Belmont Stakes as the 3-1 odds favorite, closely followed by the Preakness winner OXBOW who is currently listed with 5-1 odds.
Each year I often analyze one particluar jockey and this year he is on a longshot to win the 2013 Belmont. Edgar Prado is on board GIANT FINISH, GIANT FINISH finished 10th in the 2013 Kentucky Derby and went off at 50-1. Can Edgar be the spoiler again in 2013 and repeat his upset from 2006 when he rode BARBARO to a Kentucky Derby win?
