When betting on Belmont Stakes, it is important to remember a few good rules...If betting straight, restrict your bets to win and show only. Win means your horse finishes 1st, show means your horse comes in 1st, 2nd or 3rd. Bet horses you like with odds of 5-1 or greater to win, and 5-1 or less to place. Place is a wager on a horse that comes in 1st or 2nd. There will be thousands of people betting on Belmont Stakes. Some horses will be backed heavily by touting services and computer handicappers. These horses may win more, but since so many bet on them, the payout is less. Try to find the "dark horse," that is not overly backed but still has a good shot at winning.
