Before locking in any picks for the third leg of the 2021 Triple Crown schedule, you ABSOLUTELY need to see what our resident horse racing guru, Jody Demling, has to say.
A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling enters the 2021 Belmont Stakes after a major heater in 2020: At one point last year, he picked the winners of six straight races: the Saudi Cup, Gotham Stakes, Rebel Stakes, Louisiana Derby, Florida Derby and Belmont Stakes.
At last year's Belmont, Demling said Tiz the Law was clearly the class of the field, and Barclay Tagg's horse pulled away for a convincing 3 3/4-length victory.
And in 2018, he was all over Justify, jockey Mike Smith, and trainer Bob Baffert to make horse racing history at Belmont Park. The result: Justify became just the 13th Triple Crown winner ever, and anyone who followed Demling's lead cashed in too.
Demling is at his best in the biggest horse races in the world. He has hit nine of the last 13 Derby-Oaks doubles at Churchill Downs. That means he held a ticket with the winners of both races all but four times in the last 13 years. He's also called nine of the last 17 Preakness winners, keenly understanding when the Kentucky Derby winner was poised for victory or a massive upset. Anyone who has followed him is up HUGE.
For the 2021 Belmont Stakes, we can tell you Demling is fading Rombauer (3-1), even though he's coming off an impressive win at the 2021 Preakness Stakes! In fact, Demling says Rombauer doesn't even finish in the top two.
Instead, Demling is especially high on an underdog who "will be in the mix again" at Belmont Park, giving his backers a HUGE payday.
