Mr. Hot Stuff Odds
After an uninspiring finish at the Kentucky Derby, Mr. Hot Stuff looks for a better showing this time around when he competes at the 2009 Belmont Stakes.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.COM have made Mr. Hot Stuff a mid-range long shot to win the 141st running of the Belmont at 20/1. His odds rank behind Mine That Bird (5/6), Dunkirk (7/2), Charitable Man (3/1), Chocolate Candy (13/1) and Flying Private (18/1).
Mr. Hot Stuff is kind of an uninspiring long shot at 20/1 odds. Where as other long shots have had recent success, it’s been months since Mr. Hot Stuff has claimed victory. And at his latest run, he finished towards the back of the pack at the Kentucky Derby so he’s not coming off a strong performance.
Still, don’t forget that Mine That Bird was once a 50/1 long shot to win the Kentucky Derby and he claimed victory. So at 20/1 odds, obviously oddsmakers don’t feel as though Mr. Hot Stuff is that big of a long shot to emerge from the back and win on Saturday.
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.
