Swift or Not, the Way to Bet Belmont 146
The following are my basic exotic wagers. Straight betting--can't believe the short price on Commanding Curve and absurdly long price on Samraat in the early wagering--will be determined closer to post time.
Wagering approach to Belmont 146::
Keying California Chrome and Commanding Curve first and second in multiple pools with all other listed runners.
Making a four-horse.exacta box including the top two plus Wicked Strong and Samraat.
Using Medal Count, Ride On Curlin and General A Rod third and fourth in trifectas and superfectas.
Win wagers will be price dependent.
For the running totals record, making two wagers in this historic event, a $2 cold exacta California Chrome over Commanding Curve.
Betting $2 on Commanding Curve to win at 10-1 or greater, a total of $4 plus or minus on daily running totals.
