BELMONT, N.Y. — Tiz the Law was made the early 6-5 favorite for the Belmont Stakes this weekend.
Instead of concluding the Triple Crown, the Belmont is kicking off the series. The race will be run at 1 1/8 miles, down from its usual grueling 1 1/2 miles, without spectators or owners at Belmont Park in New York.
Tiz the Law drew the No. 8 post in the 10-horse field.
The race lost three top horses to injury: trainer Bob Baffert's undefeated duo of Charlatan and Nadal, along with Maxfield.
