Dave in Dixie opened as a 22/1 long shot and is now 20/1 to win the 2010 Belmont Stakes, according to oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com.

Post Position:

Dave in Dixie drew the rail position on Wednesday and if previous history means anything, then bettors will certainly jump on his odds for Saturday. The No. 1 post position has been the most successful at the Belmont, which has produced a total of 23 winners.


Dave in Dixie has some work to do if he’s going to compete at Belmont Park this Saturday. After finishing second at the G2 Robert B. Lewis on February 13, he took sixth at the G2 San Felipe on March 13 and fifth at the G3 Illinois Derby on April 3. He didn’t compete in the Kentucky Derby or the Preakness Stakes, so he’s not coming off a sharp prep and has yet to win a stakes race. That said, he’ll be ridden by Calvin Borel, who loves the rail, although he didn’t fare well at the 2009 Belmont last year. Still, there’s magic in the way he rides, so don’t count Dave in Dixie out.
