Few people in racing are as well-connected as Yu. An on-air host and reporter who has provided racing analysis for TVG, HRTV and the Breeders' Cup, Yu has spent a lifetime in racing. Prior to her television career, she worked for trainers Steve Asmussen and Ron Moquett. She also is married to Santa Anita-based trainer Ryan Hanson.
Yu also has tremendous handicapping chops. In the 2011 Kentucky Derby, she correctly tabbed Animal Kingdom to win at a hefty 21-1. In the 2017 Breeders' Cup, she nailed 11-1 long shot Wuheida to win the Filly and Mare Turf. Last year, in a wide-open Kentucky Derby, she gave out Medina Spirit, who crossed the finish line first, as the winner at 12-1. In Pool 5 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager this year, she suggested a play on All Other 3-Year-Olds, which cashed at a whopping 18-1 when Rich Strike won the Derby!
Since joining SportsLine in November, her picks have cashed in the Breeders' Cup Classic, Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint, Sham Stakes, El Camino Real Derby, San Felipe Stakes, Santa Anita Handicap, Kentucky Oaks and Preakness Stakes. Anyone who has followed her is WAY UP.
Now, Yu has handicapped the 2022 Belmont Stakes field, given her horse-by-horse analysis, made her picks and constructed her wagers.
One surprise: Yu is high on Nest, even though she is an 8-1 long shot! "In her races, she appears to be begging for more ground," Yu told SportsLine.
In addition, Yu is high on a double-digit long shot who "has done nothing but compete every time"! She is including this horse in her 2022 Belmont Stakes bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see her picks before locking in any of your own.
So who wins the 2022 Belmont Stakes? And which double-digit long shot is a MUST-BACK?... Join SportsLine right now to get Michelle Yu's 2022 Belmont Stakes horse-by-horse analysis and see which long shot contends, all from the insider who nailed last year's Kentucky Derby winner and this year's futures wager!
