Favored Justify draws the rail for Belmont

Justify could become U.S. racing's 13th Triple Crown winner on Saturday

The 150th running of the Belmont Stakes takes place on June 9 at 6:37 PM ET.

SMT's Betting and Social Media GOTO video board features real-time odds and bet payouts for all the races throughout the day. The last Belmont Stakes victor to break from post No. 1 was Touch Gold in 1997, although Tapwrit won the third leg of the Triple Crown previous year from post No. 2. Justify is an overwhelming betting favorite to repeat the feat and win at Belmont. Bravazo wins, Justify second and Tenfold third. When I worked him after the Preakness, American Pharoah, when he would breathe, he was like he was a machine. Racing hearts will root for Justify on Saturday, but taking into account the monumental task he faces gambling minds will look for the likely upsetter and bet accordingly. The Bob Baffert-trained Kentucky Derby and Preakness victor will be ridden once again by Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who has been aboard Justify for four of the horse's five career victories. That doesn't do much for my credibility. Unraced as a three-year-old, Justify has won all of his five career starts in the space of three months. He loves the mud and has a great trainer and jockey. Neither Romans nor Albarado has won this race.

Gronkowski is a mystery. There will also be some new horses in the crowd, including Gronkowski and Blended Citizen, both of whom will be running the Belmont on fresh legs - a substantial advantage for the longest race of the Triple Crown. He's kept his composure in every race, which has been unbelievable. The Belmont weight is a mere 126, so at this distance, it comes into play for certain. "I miss him a lot". Owners want the top trainers, so conditioners such as future Hall of Famer Todd Pletcher and current Hall members Bob Baffert, D. Wayne Lukas, Bill Mott and Steve Asmussen get more inquiries than they can keep track of and have the luxury of choosing their spots. Once Pharaoh did it, I just had this sense of relief.

Blended Citizen (Proud Citizen-Langara Lass) - The Peter Pan (G3) and Jeff Ruby Steaks (G3) victor was offered by Penn Sales, agent for breeder Ray Hanson, at the September Sale. Seven of the last 15 Belmont Stakes winners earned a declining speed rating in the previous start. He's never run in a Grade 1 race, but his Beyer has improved steadily and he's usually right there at the end.

Free Drop Billy, 16th in the May 5 Kentucky Derby last time out, will break from post-position 2 in a field of 10 as a 30-1 outsider in the program. He's hitting a team-leading.346 with 21 home runs, second-most in school history, and 68 RBIs as one of college baseball's top sluggers. One horse - Seahenge - considered a possibility for Saturday's race didn't enter, but the rest of the lineup was as expected.

'Nobody is left' - Guatemala volcano ravaged entire families
That eruption unleashed a rapid flow of gas and volcanic debris which quickly enveloped homes nearby, killing those inside. Thousands of people are staying in shelters, which includes the Church's Escuintla Guatemala Stake Center.

The race can be watched online via NBC Sports.

"It's an unbelievable moment for us to add Justify and Jockey Mike Smith to our growing list of incredible Wheels Up brand ambassadors", Wheels Up founder and CEO Kenny Dichter said in a statement.

"I'd like to see a nice day", said Baffert.

Have to bet Justify and maybe include Noble Indy in an exacta box.
