2022 Belmont Stakes Competitors, Odds, Post-Draw, Picks, Predictions: Legendary Pundit Avoids We the People

The 2022 Belmont Stakes will take place on Saturday at Belmont Park, where the eight-horse field for the 2022 Belmont Stakes was established earlier this week. We the people went wire-to-wire off track at Belmont Park to win the Peter Pan Stakes last month and will try to run a similar race after staking out the No. 1 post. This post has produced 24 winners in the 153 years in Belmont Stakes history, the most among post positions in the 2022 Belmont Stakes. With three wins in four career starts by at least five lengths, We the People are the 2-1 favorite in the Belmont Stakes 2022 odds. Mo Donegal was the 2022 Wood Memorial winner and is ranked at 5-2, while 2022 Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike went from 80-1 long shot at Churchill Downs to one of the Belmont Stakes favorites 2022 at 7-2. Before you make any picks for the 2022 Belmont Stakes, you need to see what legendary handicapper Hammerin’ Hank Goldberg has to say.

A former horse racing analyst for ESPN and NBC, Goldberg became a legendary handicapper by going straight to the source. In 2004, he dined before the Belmont Stakes with trainer Nick Zito at a pizzeria in Queens. The dinner led to Goldberg playing Zito’s monster 36-1 long shot Birdstone to win and on top of his exacta, trifecta and superfecta bets. When Birdstone shocked the world, Goldberg took home $24,000.

His success continued at SportsLine. In the San Felipe Stakes in March 2020, Hammer dealt a $20 exacta that paid 9-1. In the 2020 Belmont Stakes, Goldberg was all over Tiz the Law, who took a convincing victory in the first Triple Crown race of the year. Hammer also won the exacta in the Blue Grass Stakes, Haskell Stakes and Pacific Classic that year.

Last year he hit the exacta Essential Quality-Hot Rod Charlie in the Belmont Stakes. And three weeks ago he won the Early Voting-Epicentre exacta in the Preakness Stakes. Anyone who followed him in those races is top.

Now he has turned his attention to the 2022 Belmont Stakes field, made his picks and built his bets. Head over to SportsLine to see them.

Belmont Stakes 2022 Expert Predictions

One surprise: Goldberg is completely fading on We the People, despite being the favorite in the morning line at 2-1. Bought and sold three times at auction, We the People has already produced just over $230,000 in revenue this year to justify its $230,000 purchase price after not racing as a two-year-old. However, he struggled on his debut in the stakes and took advantage of soft ground in his iconic victory.

Trainer Rodolphe Brisset told reporters his horse could be temperamental in training, and he put it on display during the post parade at the Arkansas Derby. When he finally entered the starting grid, he was never a factor, finishing seventh behind horses that weren’t serious factors in the previous two Triple Crown races like Cyberknife, Barber Road and Secret Oath. He’s a leader running in a race with more speed than he’s ever faced.

Hammer’s top pick is a long shot that is “great value” and “fits in perfectly” with his jockey. Goldberg includes this horse in his 2022 Belmont Stakes bets, and so should you. He shares horses to support only at SportsLine.
