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 large $750k purse, so there’s a lot to race for.
We have an interesting small 5 horse field that includes 4 top horses with a real shot to win. Code of Honor is the favorite at odds of 8-5, but Preservationist, Tacitus and Vino Rosso are all real contenders, with Olympic Village 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.
2019 Jockey Club Gold Cup Betting Lines
Here are the morning line odds 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.
- Tacitus 7-2
- Code of Honor 8-5
- Vino Rosso 9-2
- Preservationist 2-1
- Olympic Village 30-1
I really think any of the four top horses in this field could win on Saturday. For this reason, my play is to take Vino Rosso, who has the longest odds of the four and thus the best value in my eyes. This is a horse that won the Gold Cup at Santa Anita at the same distance back in May. This is also a horse that finished third, one spot ahead of Preservationist, at the Whitney Stakes at the start of August.
I do not think that Code of Honor’s recent wins were over very strong fields, and Tacitus hasn’t won in his last four races. Give me Vino Rosso to do what he’s capable of and win this race with four very strong horses vying for the win.
Play: Vino Rosso 9-2
Here’s a video of Vino Rosso winning the Gold Cup at Santa Anita in May. The race is the same distance on a similar track, so it’s a good measuring stick.
