Early Voting’s win at last week’s Preakness officially ended the chance of a Triple Crown winner in 2022. Despite that, the Belmont Stakes on June 11 promises to be exciting for horse racing enthusiasts and gamblers. Massachusetts sports bettors can get in on the action at Belmont as well.
It’s already been an exciting Triple Crown season for horse racing fans. It all started with the Kentucky Derby. Rich Strike captured the Derby crown at odds of 80-1. The chestnut colt was held out of the Preakness to prepare for the Belmont.
Early Voting crossed the finish line first on May 21 after skipping the Kentucky Derby to prepare for the Preakness. 7/5 favorite Epicenter finished second for the second time in two weeks.
