Belmont Stakes Betting Odds, Early Projected Field, Triple Crown Prediction
Geege Schuman stashed this in Horses
California Chrome is even odds, but the past two horses with a Triple Crown shot failed at shorter odds.
A coin toss to win the triple crown is decent odds, right?
Yes, but are you betting on the horse or the jockey?
"In horse racing, it seems like the record of the horse matters more than the jockey's. But it's worth noting, as The Daily News' Jerry Bossert did, that California Chrome jockey Victor Espinoza heads into the 2014 Belmont Stakes having won just twice in 67 tries at Belmont Park (though Chrome has won six times with Espinoza aboard)."
Can't they get Chrome a better jockey???
That turned out perhaps to be a pertinent question!
