Bernier: Playing the Belmont Gold Cup/Belmont Stakes double


The Belmont Gold Cup/Belmont Stakes double is a tough wager to have much confidence in since we’re dealing with a 16-furlong turf race and a 12-furlong dirt race. Considering that neither of these races will be contested at a distance that is common here in the United States, a great deal of projecting needs to be done when trying to smoke out horses who are best suited to stay these marathon distances. Below I’ve laid out the horses I’m most interested in, along with the odds I believe would represent fair value on each runner.
