The $1.5 million Belmont Stakes Preakness Stakes goes to post Saturday from Belmont Park at 6:38 p.m. ET. Ten horses will vie for the prestigious third leg of the Triple Crown, including Preakness winner War of Will and Tacitus, winner of the Tampa Bay Derby and Wood Memorial.
Before you bet such a high-profile race, you NEED to hear what legendary horse racing handicapper Richard Eng has to say.
Eng was the turf editor and handicapper for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 20 years and literally wrote the book on wagering on the sport. In fact, he was the author of "Betting on Horse Racing for Dummies," the preeminent book for newcomers. Prior to his work for the Review-Journal, Eng worked as a publicist for the New York Racing Association, Garden State Park, Monmouth Park, Santa Anita Park and Turfway Park.
To say that Eng was all-in on Justify early last year would be a massive understatement. He picked Justify when that horse was a HUGE 100-1 long shot in the Kentucky Derby Futures Book in January, before the horse had even made his racing debut. He picked Justify to win all three Triple Crown races, cashing big each time.
Eng was one of the few expert handicappers to go with Maximum Security in the 2019 Kentucky Derby, a pick that would have paid off if not for the unprecedented DQ that led to historic underdog Country House being declared the winner.
Now, Eng has released his 2019 Belmont Stakes picks, with revealing analysis on every horse and a prediction for where every single one finishes. Eng loves a massive long shot to hit the board and contend for the win. He's sharing his detailed predictions with SportsLine members.
