The Belmont Stakes is upon us and DraftKings Sportsbook is putting together a huge pool for the 152nd running of the historic race. However, this high-stakes pool comes at no risk to bettors. DraftKings is offering free entry into this $100K Belmont Stakes Pool here.

The pool is simple enough, at first, before getting crazier and crazier as you scroll down the page.


How To Play:

  1. Players have to make 10 picks on the race, which starts off pretty straightforward.
  2. First things first, pick three horses to finish first, second, and third. Easy enough, but that’s just the beginning.
  3. The next five questions pit two horses against one another and the bettor must choose which horse will have the best finishing position. Again, not the most complicated questions, but nailing all five will take some luck.
  4. The ninth question is all about timing. Players have to pick an over/under (1:47:00) on the winning horse’s finishing time. In normal years, it would make sense to see how long it’s taken other horses to finish the race and pick off of those numbers.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Belmont Stakes is shortening up the race from its usual 1.5 miles to 1.375 miles. It might seem like a minor alteration, but it can make a massive difference.

The 10th and final question is the weirdest by far. What letter will the winning horse’s name start with? Players can choose A-M or N-Z. The A-M choice has more horses in the mix, but N-Z has two of the favorites (Tiz the Law and Sole Volante).

This $100K Belmont Stakes Pool is a great opportunity for bettors to take a risk-free dive into horse racing.
