The 2020 Belmont Stakes is complete. Tiz the Law won the first leg of this year’s Triple Crown by a 3 3/4 lengths over Dr Post. Tiz the Law was a heavy favorite coming into the race and did not disappoint.

This year’s race was much different than it has been in the past. In most years, the Belmont is the last leg of the Triple Crown, however, concerns over the Covid-19 outbreak forced rescheduling of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. This is the first time since 1931 that the Triple Crown has been run in a different order than normal (Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes). The race was also shortened to 1 1/8 miles (9 furlongs) instead of the usual 1 1/2 miles (12 furlongs).

A simple $2 bet on Tiz the Law to win paid out $3.60. Predicting the exact 1-2 finish (exacta) netted just $19.60 and those who got the first three in order (trifecta) brought home $199. If you were lucky enough to cash a superfecta (predict 1-2-3-4 finish in order), you would have won $1,113. While still a good return on a $2 wager, these numbers were significantly lower than they have been in the past because the heavy favorite came in first.

Below you will find the complete results and payouts for the race, including traditional wagers and exotics. We’ve also included a detailed breakdown of all the past winners and payouts at the Belmont Stakes.

Belmont Payouts History: Bet Results for Winners

Payout data was available back to 1940 for win, place, and show bets, while other bet types like exactas and trifectas did not become available until the 1980s, with the superfecta introduced in 2000.

Betting results on horse races like the Belmont use a combination of the odds at post and the total pool of money gathered for each bet type, making similar payouts rare, even with similar odds.
