How To Bet On 2024 Belmont Stakes in Canada

By Horse Racing

The 2024 Belmont Stakes will take place at Saratoga Race Course this Saturday June 8th. The race will be run at Saratoga for the first time ever due to the ongoing renovations at Belmont Park. The change of location will result in this years race being a distance of 1.25 miles, instead of the traditional 1.5 miles typical of a Belmont Stakes race.

There is no Triple Crown possibility this year. Kentucky Derby winner, Mystik Dan, finished second to Seize The Grey at the Preakness Stakes, ending his potential bid for a Triple Crown.

Even without the possibility of a Triple Crown winner the Belmont Stakes is still one of the biggest races of the year and I expect significant betting action on the race. For this reason I wanted to add this simple 3 step guide to betting on the Belmont Stakes for all of the new bettors eager to get some action on the Belmont Stakes this year.

#3. Place Your Belmont Stakes Bets

Now that you have funds online you’re ready to place your wagers. You can bet on the Belmont Stakes in the Sportsbook (fixed odds) or in the Racebook (parimutuel betting system).

Sportsbook (Fixed Odds Winner Betting)

Select ‘Sports’ from the top menu bar at Open the ‘Horse Racing’ drop down menu and select ‘Horses Daily’ -> ‘Saratoga’. This will bring up the Belmont Stakes winner odds.

Select the odds of the horse you want to bet on and enter your Risk amount on the Bet Slip. If you’re happy with the risk and potential winnings, click ‘Place Bet’ to make your bet.

Racebook (Horse Racing Wagers using Parimutuel Betting System)

Select ‘Racebook’ from the top menu bar at, open the ‘US Thoroughbred’ drop down menu and select ‘Saratoga’.  Next you should click race #12 (post time of 6:41pm) for the Belmont Stakes.

**You can also select ‘Belmont Stakes at Saratoga’ from the Featured Races section to quickly navigate to the race.

The betting in the Racebook is different because it’s done using the parimutuel betting system.  This basically means that the odds are determined by the amount of money bet on each horse through the day.  In other words the odds can change between when you place your bet and when the bets are locked in when the race starts.  Learn more on our parimutuel betting page here.

You’ll also notice there are a few varieties of betting options including win, place or show, and exotic bets such as exacta, trifecta or superfecta.  I suggest checking out our horse racing betting info page if you’re new to horse race wagering.
