1 Twisted Tom – It’s been a wild ride this Triple Crown season, so why not pick some value in the Belmont Stakes? His Pedigree SCREAMS Belmont Stakes winner; his damsire, Thunder Gulch, won this race (and the Kentucky Derby) in 1995, while his sire’s sire, Giant’s Causeway, finished second in the 2000 Breeders’ Cup Classic. Also, it doesn’t hurt having Chad Brown and Javier Castellano on your side. Twisted Tom has pointed towards this race for a while now, and last time out at Laurel Park, he seemed to put everything together in a big way and picked up a nice stakes victory. This is going to be a big step up for him, but expect him to outrun his odds in a big way while also having a legit shot when turning for home. Outstanding each way value and this has been his main target this campaign, look for him to be fit and running over the top of them.
