Tiz the Law named the favorite for Belmont Stakes


Tiz the Law is officially the favorite and will break for the Belmont Stakes from the No. 8 post position.

The unprecedented first leg of the Triple Crown, set for Saturday at Belmont Park, held its draw on Wednesday and announced Tiz the Law was the 6-5 morning line favorite.

Sole Violante came in at 9-2 with the No. 2 post while Dr. Post — one of Todd Pletcher’s two entries, along with Farmington Road (15-1) — will go from the ninth position with 5-1 odds.

Steve Asmussen is the other trainer with a pair of horses in the field. Jungle Runner has the longest odds at 50-1, coming out of the seventh position, while Pneumatic is 8-1 from the 10th spot.

Tap it to Win — trained by Mark Casse, whose Sir Winston won last year’s Belmont Stakes — drew the unenviable No. 1 post position with 6-1 odds.

Fore Left — trained by Doug O’Neill and ridden by Jose Ortiz — was a late entry to the field, making it a 10-horse race.
