The 2017 Belmont Stakes is complete.  Winning horse, Tapwrit, entered with 6-to-1 odds the morning of the race and those odds worked down to around 11-to-2 by post time.  There were no Triple Crown implications, or even significant connections, as both Kentucky Derby winner, Always Dreaming, and Preakness Stakes winner, Cloud Computing, did not participate.

Classic Empire, who finished second at the Preakness and fourth in the Kentucky Derby was expected to be the favorite, but was a late scratch due to a foot injury.  Irish War Cry was the odds-on favorite at post and finished second.

Below you will find the complete results and payouts for the race, including traditional wagers and exotics.  We’ve also listed the prize money paid to each of the top five finishers.

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.
