Justify, winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, will face nine horses in the field for Saturday’s Belmont, and he now has a new challenge with the first post position.
The list of challengers for the Triple Crown was expected to include Seahenge and Bandua, but their connections decided against a run in the third jewel of the Triple Crown. Justify faced seven horses in the Preakness.
Here are the post positions and morning line odds for the 10-horse field for the 150th Belmont Stakes Saturday at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y.:
>>No. 1 Justify (4-5 odds), trained by Bob Baffert and trying to take the same path as Baffert’s Triple Crown winner in 2015, American Pharoah.
