Charitable Man Odds
When the 141st running of the Belmont Stakes runs on Saturday, June 6, one of the thoroughbreds expected to give favorite Mine that Bird a run for his money is Charitable Man.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.COM have made Charitable Man a mid-range favorite at 3/1 odds. Only Mine That Bird, who is a 5/6 favorite, and Dunkirk, who is a mid-range favorite at 7/2, are the only other horses who have better odds to win than Charitable Man.
Even though he didn’t run at the Kentucky Derby or the Preakness this season, Charitable Man is an intriguing betting option this weekend because he’s had some success at Belmont Park in his last couple races.
After winning the Maiden Special Weight at Saratoga on August 10 of last season, Charitable Man won the Futurity S. at Belmont Park on September 13 and again at Peter Pan S. at Belmont Park on May 9 of 2009, which was his most recent race.
If any horse was going to challenge massive favorite Mine That Bird this weekend, it could be Charitable Man due to his success and knowledge of Belmont Park. Charitable Man should also be well rested after not running against top competition this season.
The 141st running of the Belmont Stakes will take place on Saturday, June 6 at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. For more information on this year’s race, check out our 2009 Belmont Stakes Viewing Guide.
