The Belmont Stakes is Saturday, and Hank Goldberg is all-in. A legendary prognosticator and current horse racing expert at SportsLine, Goldberg couldn't have been more dead-on about last year's Belmont Stakes. He was all over Justify to win, saying he'd get over the fatigue of winning two Triple Crown races and overcome a tough No. 1 post position. The result: Justify made history, going wire-to-wire to complete the 13th Triple Crown ever. He was all over Justify months before the Kentucky Derby and picked him in every Triple Crown race.
The reason Goldberg has been so successful: He goes straight to the source, and anyone who follows him has reaped life-changing paydays. In fact, if you had laid $300 on his Belmont picks in 2004, you would have cashed for over $21,000. That year, he was all over Birdstone as a 36-1 long shot to win the Belmont over the heavily favored Smarty Jones. Goldberg had dinner with Birdstone's trainer, Nick Zito, before the race at a pizzeria in Queens. The Hammer pounced on the long shot to win and put him on top of his exacta, trifecta and superfecta bets.
Birdstone beat Smarty Jones by one length in one of the most thrilling Triple Crown races ever. Royal Assault -- almost a 30-1 long shot on the Belmont Stakes odds board and also trained by Zito -- finished third, giving the Hammer and his followers MONSTER payouts. He also turned $50 into $11,000 at the 2017 Preakness after chatting up legendary trainer Chad Brown.
Goldberg got 2019 off to a strong start by nailing the Pegasus World Cup, the richest horse race in North America. He also nailed the exacta at the Gotham Stakes, Rebel Stakes and Arkansas Derby. Anyone who has followed Goldberg's lead is WAY up.
Now, with the 2019 Belmont Stakes lineup set, we can tell you that Goldberg says Intrepid Heart, one of the top favorites at 5-1, doesn't even hit the board. "My concern is that the Belmont will be only his fourth start, and going 1 1/2 miles in your fourth race is a tough task," Goldberg told SportsLine.
Instead, Goldberg is high on a HUGE long shot to hit the board at the 2019 Belmont Stakes. This horse is bred to run the distance it takes to contend at the Belmont, and if he hits as Goldberg expects, you could be looking at a COLOSSAL payout. You ABSOLUTELY need to see which horse it is before making your Belmont Stakes picks!
