We are less than 48 hours from the last remaining race of the 2013 Triple Crown and as such, we have another great Belmont Stakes 2013 predictions matchup between Overanalyzed vs. Golden Soul.
For starters, the 145th running of the Belmont Stakes takes place this Saturday night, beginning at 6:40 PM ET on NBC Sports. The final jewel of the Triple Crown has a $1 million purse, which includes a first-place grand prize of $600,000 big ones.
According to Belmont Stakes 2013 betting odds specialists, Overanalyzed and Golden Soul both have the exact same chances against one another. Horse racing oddsmakers list them both as -115 in their matchup.
Overanalyzed comes into the Belmont well-rested haven taken time off following the Kentucky Derby. The son of Dixie Union is one of those thoroughbreds who went into Churchill Downs with plenty of experience.
Before his disappointing 11th-place finish at the Run for the Roses, Overanalyzed had captured the Grade I Arkansas Derby in impressive fashion. He not only defeated a stellar field, but one that also includes Preakness Stakes winner, Oxbow, as well as Kentucky Derby and Belmont contenders.
In the case of Golden Soul, this horse is flying so under the radar that no one even remembers that he gave Orb all that he could handle at the Derby. The son of Perfect Soul finished second at Churchill Downs, and is now ready to make some noise at the 2013 Belmont Stakes.
Before his near-win at Churchill Downs, Golden Soul competed in three races, including a pair of G2s and one Grade III. Trained by Dallas Stewart, he has a second-place finish at the Lecomte-G3, a sixth-place effort at the Risen Star-G2 and was fourth at the Louisiana Derby-G2.
It’s obvious that despite Golden Soul’s terrific effort at the Derby, Overanalyzed is by far the better horse and thus, wager for my 2013 Belmont Stakes predictions. The fact that Overanalyzed has defeated a horse like Oxbow, Frac Daddy, Carve and others tells you everything you need to know about his championship pedigree.
