2017 Belmont Stakes Expert Picks and Predictions

Matt Shiffman Irish War Cry
Brian Zipse Senior Investment, Tapwrit

Shiffman, just like most experts around the web, had Classic Empire as the favorite to win. However, with the horse out of the race due to a foot abscess, we listed his other pick.
Irish War Cry (+300) was someone he considered as “dangerous” and a “threat to win,” saying that whenever the horse is on, it acts as a pace-setter, and the performances are on a very high level. IWC is handled by Graham Motion, one of the sport’s best and most respected trainers.

Zipse, meanwhile, likes Senior Investment (+1,000) because of three things: legendary trainer Kenny McPeek and the way he is able to prepare horses, efficiency in speed, and ability to run a long race.
His Tapwrit (+600) pick, on the other hand, is about him seeing the horse as a different version of Destin, one of his favorite horses. Zipse said the two have great running styles, and he also liked that Tapwrit will be coming in having more rest than the competition.

The Spectrum

Pete Monaco Lookin at Lee

Monaco is all praises for Lookin at Lee. He believes that ‘Lee is the best built horse for a race such as the Belmont Stakes, particularly with the track’s wide-sweeping turn that benefits true speedsters.

Despite having some concern over opting to still enter last week’s Preakness instead of resting, Monaco knows that the stretch-running ability will enable his pick to reign in the event.

The Derby Handicapper

Michael J. Cox Patch, Tapwrit

Our last expert’s predictions were quite short. He said that the two mentioned in the table above have the pedigree he’s looking for, and they are well-rested and trained by some of the best jockeys and trainers in the sport.
