Today's Belmont Stakes in New York is Exaggerator's to lose.

He stands out when I look at the past performances.

He has consistently run speed figures in the 100s. None of his competitors can say that.

And he's got the perfect running style for the 1.5 mile race.

He should be the one running in the end.

The problem with betting him to win is that he'll be even money or less.

So let's try some exactas.

I'll take Exaggerator on top of Suddenbreakingnews, Destin and Brody's Cause.

That's 11 over 2, 4, and 12.
