|Reinier Macatangay||Mo Donegal|
Reinier Macatangay of Horse Racing Nation believes that Mo Donegal will finish first at the 2022 Belmont Stakes, saying that the 3-year-old colt “is a battle-tested horse who knows how to win.” Mo Donegal has raced six times (four non-MSW) and finished first three times, including a win at the Grade 2 Wood Memorial.
|Expert||Long shot pick|
For Jacob Camenker of Sporting News, Nest should get the attention of those who are looking for a long-shot pick to win the 2022 Belmont Stakes. Nest is +800 win this weekend at Belmont Park.
Nest has won four of her six races and has finished top-three in the other two. She has a good pedigree as the daughter of Curlin, who twice won the Horse of the Year award, so the track record demonstrates that she should be able to compete for a title.

|TopBet News Editor | Ryan Simpson||We The People|
In his preview of the 2022 Belmont Stakes, TopBet News Editor Ryan Simpson revealed that he is picking We The People to win the race. Here’s what Simpson had to say about We The People:
We The People will be bringing serious speed to the 2022 Belmont Stakes. While he did not participate in any of the first two legs of the Triple Crown, We The People has three wins in four starts, including his success at the Grade 3 Peter Pan race back in May. Riding We The People for the big race this coming Saturday will be Flavien Prat, who was also the man on top of Hot Rod Charlie, the runner-up at the 2021 Belmont Stakes.
