Godolphin have had many great horses throughout the years and it looks like Maxfield could be their latest star. The three-year-old extended his unbeaten record on Saturday with victory in the Matt Winn and stamped his claims for a possible bid at the Triple Crown.

This year, the Belmont Stakes is the first leg of the famous triple-header after Covid-19 enforced the delay of the Kentucky Derby and UK bookmakers were quick to slash Maxfield’s odds for Belmont. He was available at 12/1 before Saturday’s race and now sits at 6/1 behind the likes of Charlatan and Nadal in the betting.

Horse Odds
Nadal 7/2
Charlatan 7/2
Tiz The Law 7/2
Maxfield 6/1
Mischevious Alex 10/1
Shivaree 14/1
Dr Post 16/1

Odds correct as of 05/26/2020 and supplied by Bet365 UK.

 

There has been some doubt as to whether Godolphin may choose to skip a crack at the Triple Crown due to his inexperience, but you only get one chance at the most famous races in Horse Racing and it would be a shock to many if they didn’t roll the dice.
