Belmont Stakes 2024: Cheat Sheet for racing form, past performances, post positions, odds, jockeys, post time

There will not be a Triple Crown winner this year, but there are still plenty of reasons to be excited for the 2024 Belmont Stakes on Saturday. Preakness Stakes winner Seize the Grey and Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan are both in the 2024 Belmont Stakes field, joining Kentucky Derby runner-up Sierra Leone. Two of the last three Belmont winners ran in the Kentucky Derby before skipping the Preakness, and Sierra Leone is the 9-5 favorite in the 2024 Belmont Stakes odds. Mindframe (7-2), Mystik Dan (5-1) and Seize the Grey (8-1) are also among the 2024 Belmont Stakes horses.

Post time is scheduled for 6:41 p.m. ET on Saturday and this year’s race will be contested at 10 furlongs (1 1/4 miles) instead of 12 (1 1/2 miles). Before making any 2024 Belmont Stakes picks for the 156th Run for the Carnations, you need to see our 2024 Belmont Stakes cheat sheet, 2024 Belmont Stakes racing form, and 2024 Belmont Stakes past performances featuring analysis from renowned horse racing handicapper Jody Demling

A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling enters the 2024 Belmont Stakes having nailed the winner in the third leg of the Triple Crown four of the last six years, including an exacta in 2022 with Mo Donegal and Nest. He also called Flightline’s win at the Breeders’ Cup Classic in November of that year. 

Demling is at his best in the biggest horse races in the world like the Kentucky Derby 2024. In fact, he has hit 11 of the last 16 Derby-Oaks doubles at Churchill Downs. That means he held a ticket with the winners of both races all but five times in the last 16 years. He’s also called 10 of the last 20 Preakness winners, including nailing his Preakness winner, exacta, trifecta and superfecta picks in 2023 and then hitting the trifecta in 2024. Anyone who has followed him is up huge.

Now, with the 2024 Belmont Stakes odds already on the board, SportsLine has teamed up with Demling to provide a complete 2024 Belmont Stakes cheat sheet racing form with connections, past performances, speed figures, expert picks and more, all to save you time on your Belmont Stakes bets. It’s a must-see 2024 Belmont Stakes primer. Go here to see it.

2024 Belmont Stakes cheat sheet 

With SportsLine’s Belmont Stakes 2024 cheat sheet, you’ll get valuable information for every horse in the 2024 Preakness Stakes field. The 2024 Belmont Stakes cheat sheet will give you post position, connections, odds, career record, earnings, past performances and speed figures. You’ll also get analysis from Demling on each horse, including his breakdown of Seize the Grey, who is coming off a wire-to-wire win in the Preakness Stakes.

Seize the Grey broke his maiden at Saratoga last July, despite entering that race as a 16-1 longshot. He has been heavily raced during his career, going 10-4-0-3 overall and 5-3-0-1 in 2024. His last two races have been the most impressive of his career, as he won the Pat Day Mile (G2) before winning the Preakness Stakes. Those were the best speed figures he has posted, so the D. Wayne Lukas-trained horse is peaking at the right time. Lukas is a four-time Belmont Stakes winner, but he is seeking his first victory since 2000. 

Here’s a sample of the 2024 Belmont Stakes cheat sheet with Seize the Grey’s PPs:

Seize the Grey

Post position: 1
Trainer: D. Wayne Lukas (Belmont winner in ’94, ’95, ’96, ’00)
Jockey: Jaime Torres
Odds: 8-1
Career earnings: $1,819,940 (third in Belmont field)
Career record (starts-win-place-show): 10-4-0-3
Notable win: Preakness Stakes (G1)
Best consensus speed figure: 101 (fifth in Belmont field)
Last Race: 1st by 2.25, lengths Preakness Stakes (G1)
Analysis: The D. Wayne Lukas trained colt proved me wrong in the Preakness Stakes. There will be more pace for him to deal with in this one and I believe the distance will prove too much. I believe his odds will end up being higher in the Belmont than they were in the Preakness.
