The Jockey Club Gold Cup takes place at Belmont Park this Saturday evening. It’s the final “Win and You’re In” qualifier for the Breeders Cup Classic, on top of having a solid $250k purse, so there’s a lot to race for.
We have an interesting small 5 horse field that includes 4 top quality horses with a real shot to win. Tacitus is the favorite at odds of 6-5, but Happy Saver, Mystic Guide and Prioritize are all real contenders, with Name Changer rounding out the field.
In this article I will provide the morning line odds for the 5 horses in the field, my pick to win the race and a step by step guide outlining how to place your Jockey Club Gold Cup bets online.
2020 Jockey Club Gold Cup Betting Lines
Here are the morning line odds and post positions for this years edition of the Jockey Club Gold Cup from Belmont Park. The odds will change leading up to the race depending on the amount of money bet on each contender.
- Happy Saver 5-2
- Prioritize 5-1
- Name Changer 30-1
- Tacitus 6-5
- Mystic Guide 3-1
Tacitus, who finished 3rd in this race last year, is the favorite at odds of 6-5, but as you can see from the odds there are four horses with a legitimate chance at winning the race.
I like Happy Saver at odds of 5-2. He may be an inexperienced horse having run only three races in his career, but he’s past every challenge put in front of him winning all three of those races. The Jockey Club Gold Cup will be a longer race than he has run in his career at 1 1/4 miles, but I think he has the stamina to keep his speed during that extra 1/8 of a mile.
I always like horses who win races and Happy Saver has never lost. I’ll take him to beat Tacitus, who is racing well, but only has one win in his last 9 races.
Play: Happy Saver 5-2
