On Saturday, Justify will shoot to become the 13th horse ever (and the second in the last four years) to win horse racing’s Triple Crown.

While the Belmont Stakes is obviously the focal point, the entire card at Belmont on Saturday is pretty terrific. If you’re looking to make some money, remember that our friend David Levitch is now in the capping business, and is selling his picks for a modest fee over at The Horse Capper.

As far as the big race is concerned, here’s the lineup:

  1. Justify (4/5)
  2. Free Drop Billy (30/1)
  3. Bravazo (8/1)
  4. Hofburg (9/2)
  5. Restoring Hope (30/1)
  6. Gronkowski (12/1)
  7. Tenfold (12/1)
  8. Vino Rosso (8/1)
  9. Noble Indy (30/1)
  10. Blended Citizen (15/1)
