2019 Belmont Stakes Preview
With 9-5 morning-line odds, Tacitus is a slight favorite ahead of War of Will, who’s 2-1 on the morning line.
Tacitus, coached by Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott, had won three consecutive races before finishing third in the controversial Kentucky Derby, where another Mott horse, Country House, claimed victory with the disqualification of Maximum Security.
“I thought his Derby was good,” the trainer said of Tacitus, according to America’s Best Racing. “He came running, but he had to change course a number of times, weaving inside and outside through traffic. He was willing, and he never got stopped or checked, but every time you change course, you’re probably taking a little something away from your momentum. It wasn’t a bad trip, but it wasn’t a golden trip like Country House actually got.”
Mott is looking to become just the second trainer known to have won Triple Crown races with different horses in the same year. D. Wayne Lukas pulled off the feat in 1995, when Thunder Gulch took the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes and Timber Country won the Preakness.
“It would be nice,” Mott said, per America’s Best Racing. “I suppose it would be like winning the two Breeders’ Cup races in 2011 when Drosselmeyer won the Classic the same weekend that Royal Delta won the Ladies’ Classic (now Longines Distaff).
“Having the Derby winner this year has given me an incentive to come back and win it again. It makes you hungrier. For a long time you live with the feeling that maybe it’s never going to happen for you. Not like I ever gave up trying. You keep on trying, and if it happens, it happens. Now, I’d like to win one in a more traditional way.”
Fellow trainer Todd Pletcher will have two horses in the field: Spinoff (15-1) and Intrepid Heart (10-1).
“The Belmont is a race we really cherish,” Pletcher said, according to Newsday. “It’s home for us, and I think one of the advantages is most of our horses have trained at Belmont for five weeks after the Derby. It helps, and it’s a race we really enjoy.
