2020 Triple Crown Winner Predictions

Triple Crown Winner 2020

With the way the Triple Crown is setup this year, either one of two things will happen. There could be a standout horse. That is much the best in all three races. Or the fields between each leg of the Triple Crown could be so diverse. It’s going to be nearly impossible for the same horse to win each race. You can make a strong case either way in terms of there being a Triple Crown winner.

For example, since the Belmont Stakes is being run a shorter distance. The longest race a horse will have run in will be the 10-furlong Kentucky Derby. Sounds about right. In year’s past, the Belmont was always the most challenging leg of the Triple Crown. For the reason that a horse needed to have the endurance to finish strong in a 1 and half mile race. However, things always change.

On the other hand, if a horse wins both the Preakness and the Belmont before the Kentucky Derby. That horse will almost certainly be heavily favored to not only win the Kentucky Derby but also win the Triple Crown. This year’s Triple Crown prop wager is a difficult one. However, if you believe strongly that there is only one horse that can win all three races, it might be an easy wager cash at your favorite online sportsbook on Kentucky Derby day 2020.
