    2024 Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes picks, odds: Horse racing writer has best bets for Saturday's race

    SportsLine horse racing writer Gene Menez, who gave out Mystik Dan as a live longshot in the Kentucky Derby at 18-1, has made his picks for the Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes at Aqueduct

    The Michael McCarthy-trained Endlessly will get back to the turf on Saturday when he leaves the starting gate in the 2024 Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, N.Y. One of the country's best 2-year-old turf horses last year, Endlessly has raced on synthetic or dirt in three races this year. With his return to his preferred surface, Endlessly has been installed as the 6-5 morning-line favorite in the Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes odds. The Charlie Appleby-trained Legend of Time is the 5-2 second choice among the Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes horses. Trikari (7-2), White Palomino (5-1) and Royal Majesty (6-1) round out the five-horse field. Post time is 3:08 p.m. ET.

    With an accomplished field set to enter the starting gate on Saturday, you'll want to see what SportsLine writer Gene Menez has to say before making any Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes picks or horse racing predictions. Join SportsLine here to get his full Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes picks.

    A former reporter and editor at Sports Illustrated, Menez covered an array of sports, including horse racing, for the magazine and its website for almost 14 years. Between 2010 and 2012, he served as SI's handicapper for the Triple Crown races and correctly predicted Super Saver to win the Kentucky Derby in 2010.

    In 2015, while writing for Sports on Earth, Menez accurately gave out the Kentucky Derby superfecta (American Pharoah, Firing Line, Dortmund and Frosted), which paid $1,268.20 for $2. Then in 2017, he tweeted out his Kentucky Derby picks, including Always Dreaming to win, and hit the Pick 4, which paid almost $6,900 on a $1 bet. Join SportsLine right here to see his 2024 Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes picks.

    In a span of seven races last year for SportsLine, he cashed the winner of the Lecomte Stakes, the exacta in the Southwest Stakes ($468), the winner of the Holy Bull Stakes, the winner of the Sam F. Davis Stakes, and the trifecta in the Jenny Wiley Stakes. And in May, he gave out 18-1 Mystik Dan as a live longshot in the Kentucky Derby

    Now, Menez has looked at the 2024 Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes, made his picks and formulated his bets. Join SportsLine here to see them.

    We can tell you that Menez's top pick is not Endlessly, the 6-5 favorite. "His lack of speed in a five-horse race without much early pace is a concern," Menez told SportsLine. He prefers another horse over Endlessly.

    Instead, Menez's top pick is a horse who is "sitting on a big race." He is including this horse in his wagers, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY NEED to see which horse it is before making any 2024 Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes picks of your own!

    So who wins the 2024 Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes? And how has Menez constructed his wagers? ... Join SportsLine now to get the top 2024 Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes picks and bets, all from the expert who gave out Mystik Dan as a live longshot in the Kentucky Derby!
