The 2015 Belmont Stakes will be held on Saturday as American Pharoah looks to run for the Triple Crown. The field appears to have a pretty solid group of horses as the 2015 Belmont Stakes Contenders are ready to go as we look for horse racing history. Currently the Morning Line Odds for the race have American Pharoah listed as a massive favorite to get the job done.
American Pharoah will look to become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the Triple Crown. California Chrome gave it a really good run last year after winning the opening two legs of horse racing's biggest prize, but finished in a tie for fourth place with Wicked Strong as Tonalist picked up the 2014 Belmont Stakes win.
A total of 11 horses ran in last year's event, this year will only see eight horses race. Todd Pletcher horses Materiality and Madefromlucky are both considered to be contenders in this year's Belmont Stakes, Frosted is the other horse that is drawing single digit odds along with Materiality and American Pharoah.

Beating the Belmont for Beginners
Steve Fezzik and Teddy Covers are pro bettors, but both admit they aren't much for horse racing betting. They say that isn't a requirement to bet the Belmont though. Since American Pharoah is going for the Triple Crown, something we haven't seen since Affirmed in 1978, simply bet the field to win and you'll succeed. There have been 12 Triple Crown Contenders in the past 20 years and none of them have won, so the guys are more than comfortable to take the "no-win" bet on American Pharoah. Avoid the media hype about the special horse, there are too many horse "assassins" in the field and history shows it is a bad bet.
