The highly touted and Chad Brown-trained Newspaperofrecord will try to get back in the win column on Saturday when she enters the starting gate for the 2019 Belmont Oaks at Belmont Park. Post time for the 1 1/4-mile race is 4:30 p.m. ET.
Before you lock in any 2019 Belmont Oaks picks, you NEED to see what 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 is on a hot handicapping run. In January, he nailed the superfecta at the prestigious Pegasus World Cup -- a $678 payout on a $1 bet. The following month, he hit the superfecta at the Robert B. Lewis Stakes and correctly picked War of Will to win the Risen Star Stakes.
In April, Demling scored the exacta and trifecta in the Santa Anita Derby, Blue Grass Stakes and Wood Memorial on the same day. One week later, he hit the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Arkansas Derby. The following week, he nailed the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Dixiana Elkhorn Stakes, winning $408.38 on a $38.40 investment.
In May, he scored the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, turning a $50.40 investment into $208.57. Then, he hit the trifecta and superfecta at the Gamely Stakes. He's also hit nine of the last 11 Oaks-Derby doubles, meaning he's held a ticket with the winners of both the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby all but twice in the last 11 years. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
Now, Demling has analyzed the entire 2019 Belmont Oaks field and released where he says every horse will finish.
We can tell you that he's fading Olendon even though she's one of the top favorites at 9-2. In fact, Demling says Olendon doesn't even hit the board. This French-bred daughter of Le Havre is making her North American debut after racing exclusively in France, but Olendon has won just two of six career races. Neither of those wins came in Group races, so she'll be facing the toughest competition of her career.
Instead, Demling is especially high on a double-digit long shot to hit the board HARD at the Belmont Oaks. If you include this horse in your exotics, you could be looking at a COLOSSAL payday!
