The Belmont Stakes 2016 seemed to draw several closers this year and tomorrow will be the test to see who really can go the mile-and-a-half distance. Trainers are finishing up the final preparations for their horses, some being popular picks and others being complete longshots.

Exaggerator: The Belmont favorite had one last gallop this morning to prepare for his start tomorrow in his third Triple Crown race.


StradivariEven with less race experience, Stradivari was turning heads on Belmont Park’s training track yesterday morning during his gallop.


DestinHe’s had a lot of time in between his last two races, but the Giant’s Causeway colt is steadily maturing.


Cherry Wine: After a great runner-up finish in the Preakness, Cherry Wine is looking like a good horse for the Belmont.


SuddenbreakingnewsHe’s not only gotten media attention for his new ridgling status, but also because he could fly home late to steal Belmont victory.


CreatorCreator will be looking to rebound from the Kentucky Derby, and he seems to have more favor in the Belmont than he did five weeks ago in Kentucky.


Governor MalibuThe same trainer-jockey combination, Christophe Clement and Joel Rosario, won the Belmont just two years ago with Tonalist. Governor Malibu seems to be the favorite longshot in the field.


LaniAccording to trainer Mikio Matsunaga, Lani has taken a liking to Belmont Park and is finally settling down and getting to work.


Brody’s Cause: Trainer Dale Romans is high on both Brody's Cause, coming off a five week break, and his stablemate Cherry Wine.


Forever d’Oro: One of two maiden winners being sent out by Dallas Stewart and Charles Fipke. The connections will see how good their horses really are in the Belmont.


Seeking the Soul: Seeking the Soul will leave the Belmont Park starting gate right next to his stablemate. 


Gettysburg: Many people are expecting Gettysburg to be the pacesetter for Creator, a closer. Both horses are owned by WinStar Farm, LLC and trained by Steve Asmussen.


Trojan NationThe lone maiden in the field will try once again to win in stakes company, but the odds remain stacked against him.
