How To Bet On 2017 Belmont Stakes in Canada

With Cloud Computing winning the Preakness Stakes a few weeks back, Always Dreaming no longer has a shot at the Triple Crown heading into the Belmont Stakes race this weekend.  That said, the race is still considered “the test of a champion” and is sure to still deliver an exciting few minutes come Saturday.

Neither Always Dreaming or Cloud Computing will be competing in this race, so we will see another new winner in the Triple Crown races this year.  Classic Empire is expected to race and he will be a significant favourite over the other horses in this field.  Lookin At Lee and Epicharis are among the other favourites according to, but the Belmont Stakes race is really anyone’s to win this year.

Bet On 2017 Belmont Stakes in Canada – Step By Step Guide

#1. Open a Sportsbook Account

The first thing you need to do is open an account at an online sportsbook that also provides a quality racebook.  I recommend that Canadians sign up at, our top rated sportsbook.  They’re currently offering a 100% up to $200 sign up bonus and have one of the easiest to use racebooks I’ve seen in the industry.  Check out our full Sports Interaction review for a more detailed breakdown.

#2. Deposit

Next up you’ll need to make a deposit.  You can look at our deposit options page to see which of the more common deposit methods are accepted at

The bonus offer is 100% up to $200 and it’s very easy to clear, so I suggest depositing $200 or more in order to take full advantage of the free money.

#3. Place Your Belmont Stakes Bets

Now that you have funds online you’re ready to place your wagers.

Leading To Race Day

If you’re ready to place your Belmont Stakes bets before race day you can do so in the Sportsbook.  Click on the ‘Horse Racing’ tab and then the ‘Belmont Stakes’ link.  This will bring up the Belmont Stakes futures odds as shown below.  These are fixed odds so when you place your bet the wager is locked in at these odds.

On Race Day

On race day the betting is done a little bit differently.  You will need to place your bets in the Sports Interaction Racebook, which you can find by clicking on ‘Racebook’ in the top navigation bar of the Sports Interaction website.  Next you’ll need to select Belmont Park or simply choose Belmont Stakes from the ‘Featured Races’ tab.

The betting is different because it’s done using the parimutuel betting system.  This basically means that the odds are determined by the amount of money bet on each horse through the day.  In other words the odds can change between when you place your bet and when the bets are locked in when the race starts.  Learn more on our parimutuel betting page here.

You’ll also notice there are a few varieties of betting options including win, place or show, and exotic bets such as exacta, trifecta or superfecta.  I suggest checking out our horse racing betting info page if you’re new to horse race wagering.
