Belmont Stakes 2023: Post position, horse lineup, morning line odds

We now have the final post positions for the final race of the 2023 Triple Crown at Belmont Park.

Jockey Joao Moreira in Japan

The draw for the 155th Belmont Stakes is complete, and now we know which horses will run the longest race of the Triple Crown season on Saturday, June 10.

Preakness winner at 5-1 National Treasure is not the favorite in the 12-furlong marathon, as that honor goes to Forte on the track’s morning line at 5-2. Tapit Trice was one of the favorites for the Kentucky Derby, but a disappointing seventh place finish for a horse that had won four times in a row has him back as the 3-1 second choice.

On the 50th anniversary of Secretariat’s run at Belmont Park, perhaps the most famous race in American thoroughbred history, Tapit Shoes will break from the rail just as Big Red did in 1973. The Brad Cox trainee sits at a 20-1 projected price.

Kentucky Derby winner Mage is not in the field for the last race of the Triple Crown.
