Exaggerator Favored in Belmont Odds

Preakness Stakes (G1) winner Exaggerator opened as the favorite for the $1.5-million Belmont Stakes (G1) on June 11, and the price went down even farther with the announcement that Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Nyquist is not headed to the Big Apple.

Nyquist suffered his first defeat in the Preakness and spiked a fever shortly after the race. His trainer Doug O’Neill announced on Tuesday morning that the colt had an elevated white blood cell count and was declared out of the third jewel of the Triple Crown.

Nyquist is currently at Preakness betting odds of 4-7 at Bovada and it is tough to find any knocks on the talented colt other than the puny price.

Nyquist Preakness and Triple Crown Odds

Just like a year ago when American Pharoah was quickly installed as Preakness Stakes and Triple Crown favorite in the wake of an impressive Kentucky Derby win, Nyquist finds himself in the same role tonight.

The 2-1 Derby favorite held off a late charge from Exaggerator to win in the fastest Derby time since Funny Cide in 2003 and was quickly made a prohibitive -170 favorite to win the Preakness in two weeks. They also posted him as a +120 favorite to win the Belmont Stakes.

No Shortage of Sleepers in Kentucky Derby

While the undefeated juvenile champion Nyquist, Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner Exaggerator and four-time graded stakes winner Mohaymen have been garnering most of the attention in early betting for the Kentucky Derby (G1), this year’s race is highlighted by plenty of live longshots looking to pull off the upset.
