American Pharoah Travers Stakes Odds

Triple Crown winner American Pharoah will be back in action on Saturday as the overwhelming odds favorite in the $1.6 million Travers (G1) at Saratoga. He is the current betting favorite at 1/5 at Bovada.

The Bob Baffert trainee returns just four weeks after his sharp score in the Haskell Invitational (G1) at Monmouth Park on August 2.  Under regular jockey Victor Espinoza, the colt opened up a clear lead in the stretch and won under a hand ride by 2¼ lengths, his eighth consecutive victory.

Triple Crown Betting: American Pharoah

With wins in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes under their belts American Pharoah, jockey Victor Espinoza, and trainer Bob Baffert will now get their shot at horse racing's Triple Crown on Saturday in the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park.

American Pharoah won the Kentucky Derby as the betting favorite at Churchill Downs back on May 2, racing past second-place finisher Firing Line and third-place finisher Dortmund for the victory in the first jewel of the Triple Crown. Frosted was fourth, Danzig Moon was fifth, and Materiality was sixth at the Kentucky Derby.

Belmont Stakes: Triple Crown Prop Odds

While American Pharoah is the overwhelming favorite at 5/7 odds to win Saturday’s Belmont Stakes and become the first horse in 37 years to win horse racing’s Triple Crown, there are several other ways for bettors to get in on the wagering action for what could be an historical event.

One of the top props available involves American Pharoah finishing in the Top 3 of the eight-horse Belmont field.

Triple Crown Betting: Belmont History

American Pharoah will be chasing Triple Crown history on Saturday at the Belmont Stakes and odds are good that bettors won’t find a ton of horse betting value on the favored horse.

Only twice in the past 13 failed Triple Crown attempts (where a horse has won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes) has the history-chasing horse gone off at better than even odds.

Charismatic and War Emblem were the only horses to fit that bill for post time betting odds.

American Pharoah Gets Post Position 16

Animal Kingdom won the Kentucky Derby from post position No. 16 in 2011, and American Pharoah will get a chance to do the same on Saturday thanks to three horses being scratched from the field in the last couple of days.

American Pharoah drew the No. 18 post position on Wednesday, but the scratch of No. 11 Stanford from the field shifted him to post position No. 17 on Thursday afternoon. When International Star was scratched on Saturday morning American Pharoah then moved to post position No. 16.

Editor's Note: A third horse, International Star, was scratched from the field for the Kentucky Derby on Saturday morning.
