The 2020 Belmont Stakes takes place tonight, heralding in the the long-awaited return of the horse racing Triple Crown season. After both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes were postponed due to coronavirus-related concerns, the Belmont will mark the first major race of the year. Because of the abbreviated training time for the 10 horses in the field, organizers opted to shorten the race from its traditional 12-furlong distance down to just nine furlongs.
Despite a massive shift to the sport’s landscape in wake of the pandemic, Tiz the Law has steadily remained the favorite to win the event since January. The colt—who is nearly even money at 6-5 odds—isn’t likely to go unchallenged, however, with contenders like Sole Volante, Dr Post and Tap It To Win all getting odds of 6-1 or better to win today.
