    2024 Belmont Stakes picks, predictions: Who will win at Saratoga Race Course?

  • Ken Jordan − five times among top finishers at NTRA/National Horseplayers Championship, four Top 10s at Horseplayers World Series:

    • 6. Dornoch – Resented being rated in Blue Grass and may have had the worst trip of all in the Kentucky Derby. The thinking here is that he will attend the pace set by Seize the Grey and Mindframe, then show some finish in the stretch. Slight edge over second choice.

    • 2. Resilience – Rallied wide into the hot Derby pace, set up for a top performance by Bill Mott

    • 9. Sierra Leone – When a barn known for being meticulous says a new bit is the answer after five races, be skeptical at the windows.

    • 3. Mystik Dan – Derby hero may not get a setup where he can duplicate that powerful run.

  • Swift Hitter − New Jerseyan and horse racing commentator:

    • 9. Sierra Leone – Most talented horse in race. Chad Brown changed bits and that will help horse run a straight path. Fully expect a solid enough pace. Strictly the horse to beat. If 8/5 odds, consider it a gift.

    • 3. Mystik Dan – Derby winner and runner up in Preakness, will have to settle for second as Sierra Leone is fresh and waiting for ’em.

    • 6. Dornoch – Longshot play to round out trifecta. If left alone on lead, can be dangerous

  • Sean Nolan − 17-time National Handicapping Championship qualifier:

    • 2. Resilience – Close to the fast pace in the Derby and had to navigate some traffic on the turn. Figures to move forward off that race. Mott, who is usually conservative, sees fit to enter hinting that this Into Mischief colt is sitting on go.

    • 9. Sierra Leone – Will make his patented late run but may find enough traffic to keep from the winners’ circle. The change of equipment to the cage bit indicates Brown still doesn’t have this horse figured out and thus lowers the confidence to back him on the front end.

    • 3. Mystik Dan – The most consistent of this bunch based on his last three races. Must be included in the trifecta.

    • 5. Antiquarian – Continues to develop and Johnny V. knows him. His relatively high purchase price ($250K) for a modestly bred horse indicates the potential to be a good one. Will run from the second pack just behind the speed (Mindframe, Seize the Grey) and make work out a dream trip.

  • Steven Falk − Asbury Park Press sportswriter

    • 9. Sierra Leone – The best closer in the race is two noses away from being unbeaten and should get enough pace to run into. If he can avoid lugging in severely – a habit which cost him in both his defeats and should have gotten him disqualified to third in the Kentucky Derby – he should run them down late and give trainer Chad Brown his first Belmont winner.

    • 2. Resilience – He ran a sneaky good race in the Derby, when he finished sixth. Despite racing wide the whole way after breaking from the No. 18 post and making an early move into a pace that collapsed, he was in contention at the top of stretch before tiring. He could get a nice trip just off the pace here.

    • 10. Mindframe – The Todd Pletcher-trainee may be the most talented horse in the race. He’s won his first two starts by a combined 21 1/4 lengths and the 103 Beyer Speed Figure he recorded in his debut is the highest Beyer in the field. Mindframe outworked Kentucky Derby favorite and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champion Fierceness two weeks ago. Fierceness is now being pointed to the Haskell Stakes July 20 at Monmouth Park, along with the Bob Baffert-trained Muth. This is a major step up in class, though, for Mindframe.

    • 8. Honor Marie – He was one of the wise guy horses going into the Derby, and then never had a chance with a nightmare trip. It was probably the worst trip any of the 20 horses in the race had. He also could get enough pace to run into and gets a significant rider change due to injury to Florent Geroux.

  • Greg Giombarrese − Director of Communications, Jersey Shore BlueClaws:

    • 9. Sierra Leone – The Kentucky Derby runner-up (though he should have been disqualified to third) always fires no matter the race and no matter the pace. His race in the Risen Star was arguably the best prep race performance by anyone and he certainly ran well in the Derby. He’ll be coming late and should excel at the distance.

    • 8.  Honor Marie – He lost his chance in the Derby two seconds after the gate opened. He was pinballed around at the start and jostled for the first furlong. He was then stuck in behind horses into the lane and had to shift way out in the last 3/16ths. He was the wise guy horse going into the Derby, and may well produce his best in this race at a very square price.

    • 2. Resilience – He ran a sneaky-good race in the Derby. First, being drawn in Post 18 did him no favors. He then was hung wide the whole way and made a very early move into a very fast pace before understandably tiring late. He should be able to sit closer to the pace here and save ground. He could impact things at a price.

    • 3. Mystik Dan – The Derby winner has run quite well in the first two Triple Crown races and he projects to get another very good trip from just off the pace. We will see if he can bring his “A” game for the third time in five weeks.

  • Bob Jordan − Asbury Park Press sports editor:

    • 2. Resilience – This one from Mott is on a cycle upswing and can get the right trip.

    • 4. The Wine Steward – Extra value with this one – Saez is jumping off to stick with Dornoch, leaving this ride vacant until a couple of days ago when Manny Franco got the call.

    • 10. Mindframe – Talented but moving from nw1x to winning the Test of Champions? Not that good but will have a big say.

    • 6. Dornoch – Logical to include in exotics.

    • 9. Sierra Leone – A big prep and strong Derby but the math just doesn’t feel right with five weeks off in his particular case. Though in the last 20 editions of the Belmont Stakes, we’ve had 10 winners who went straight from the Derby to the Belmont without a start in between
