DeRosa and Shore agreed that most horse racing fans want to see a Triple Crown. But not all bettors, especially those eyeing a big payout, will throw their money at Chrome, who will run out of Gate Two with 3-5 odds.
Based on early expectations, DeRosa thinks Tonalist, a locally trained horse, will receive interest. He will run out of Gate 11 with 8-1 odds
Tonalist didn't run in the Derby or Preakness, but won his last race at Belmont Park. Fresh legs could give him an advantage at the track, which, at 1.5 miles, runs longer than the 1.25 mile Churchill Downs and 1.19 mile Pimlico.

DeRosa said Wicked Strong will be a popular choice, as well. The horse will run from gate nine with 6-1 odds.
Wicked Strong came into the Derby as a strong contender before finishing fourth. He will also bring fresh legs into the Belmont as he didn't run in the Preakness. (The horse that spoiled Smarty Jones's Triple Crown bid, Birdstone, also had raced in the Derby but not the Preakness.)
For bettors reaching for larger payouts, the Derby and Preakness runners-up may prove appealing. Ride On Curlin, the Preakness runner-up, sits at 12-1, while Commanding Curve, the Derby runner-up, has 15-1 odds.
Bettors may want to put their money behind an underdog this Saturday, because historically, favorites haven't performed so favorably at Belmont. The last favorite to win Belmont, Afleet Alex, ran in 2005, according to the NYRA.
