Belmont Bets

With the Belmont Stakes only three days away, I'll be honest, I have no idea who will win this race.  With Classic Empire (who would have been my clear choice to win) out with an abcess, the field is wide open.  Cloud Computing and Always Dreaming(the Preakness and Derby winners) are not in the race and the only horse to run in all three races is Lookin at Lee and I don't think he'll win.  He had a lucky trip in the Derby to finish second and this is a much longer race. 

Here's the current line-up listed by post position:

1. Twisted Tom, Cobra Farm, Chad Brown, Javier Castellano, 20-1
2. Tapwrit, Eclipse T'bred. Partners, Todd Pletcher, Jose Ortiz, 6-1
3. Gormley, Mr. & Mrs. Jerome Moss, John Shirreffs, Victor Espinoza, 8-1
4. J Boys Echo, Albaugh Family Stable & Bobby Flay, Dale Romans, Robby Albarado, 15-1
5. Hollywood Handsome, Mark Stanley, Dallas Stewart, Florent Geroux, 30-1
6. Lookin at Lee, L and N Racing, Steve Asmussen, Irad Ortiz Jr., 5-1
7. Irish War Cry, Isabelle de Tomaso, H. Graham Motion, Rajiv Maragh, 7-2
8. Senior Investment, Fern Circle Stable, Ken McPeek, Channing Hill, 12-1
9. Meantime, Silverton Hill LLC, Bryan Lynch, Mike Smith, 15-1
10. Multiplier, Wachtel Stable, Brendan Walsh, Joel Rosario, 15-1
11. Epicharis, Carrot Farm Co., K. Hagawara, Christophe Lemaire, 4-1
12. Patch, Calumet Farm, Todd Pletcher, John Velazquez, 12-1

I really think this is a toss-up.  I would like to see Tapwrit win but I am not betting on any horse this year!
