Belmont Stakes Submit Positions: Full Draw and Odds for the 2021 Triple Crown Race

No, Medina Spirit won’t run in Belmont Park after the New York Racing Association (NYRA) banned its owner Bob Baffert from racing. But the horse that won the 2021 Kentucky Derby before testing positive for 21 picograms of betamethasone still couldn’t have won the historic feat. Rombauer won the Preakness Stakes in 2021, eliminating all possible controversy.
