Spangled Star Info:

Owner(s): Lawrence P. Roman

Trainer: Richard E. Dutrow Jr.

Jockey: Garrett Gomez

Bred: Kentucky (USA)

Pedigree: Distorted Humor – Spanged by Kris S.

Opening Odds:

Spangled Star opened as a 30/1 long shot and according to oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, that’s where he currently sits now. He has the longest odds of any horse in this year’s Belmont.

Post Position:

Spangled Star drew the No. 2 post position on Wednesday, which could bring him some much-needed luck. The No. 2 post has produced 11 wins at the Belmont, which ranks it behind the rail position (23 winners), the No. 3 and No. 5 positions (13 winners apiece), and the No. 7 post (12 wins).

Overview:

The last and only time that Spangled Star raced this year was at the G3 Withers on February 24. And while he did finish in the money by placing third, the race was only 1 miles long, which probably won’t serve him particularly well this Saturday. The good news is that Garrett Gomez, who is the best jockey in the country to have never won a Triple Crown race, will mount him on Saturday. Still, Spangled Star needed six attempts to break his maiden and with only one start under his belt this season, it’s hard to imagine that he’ll surprise.
