Belmont Stakes 2012: Post Position Bias

Belmont Park Starting Gate
Unlike the Kentucky Derby, drawing post-postion number 1 for the Belmont Stakes has proven most successful. Out of the 11 post-positions to win the Belmont Stakes, gate 1 has 23 winners since 1905.

Drawing one of the inside 7 posts for the Belmont Stakes has proven most successful with 92 victories coming out of these spots. The outside 4 positions have yielded only 14 victories.

However, even if I’ll Have Another draws one of the inside 7 posts for the Belmont, he has more to overcome with his name beginning with the letter “I”. Only 2 other horses have won the Belmont Stakes with their name beginning with the letter “I”. The letter “C” has the most victories in the Belmont Stakes with 20 wins.

Luckily, I’ll Have Another won’t have to worry about a horse with their name starting with “C” racing in the Belmont Stakes. For likely second choice Union Rags, there are no recorded victories in the Belmont Stakes with the horses name starting with the letter “U”.
