Seize the Grey will go for the Double when the 2024 Belmont Stakes gets underway on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course. The D. Wayne Lukas-trained colt skipped the Kentucky Derby, but finished first in the Pat Day Mile at Churchill Downs the same day. He followed that up with a victory at the Preakness Stakes, besting Derby winner Mystik Dan. Seize the Grey is 8-1 in the 2024 Belmont Stakes odds to win and complete the Preakness-Belmont Double, which hasn't been accomplished in almost 20 years.

Mystik Dan is 5-1 to complete a Kentucky Derby-Belmont Double, while Derby runner-up Sierra Leone is the 9-5 favorite among the 2024 Belmont Stakes horses. The Belmont Stakes 2024 post time is 6:41 p.m. ET.

Top 2024 Belmont Stakes predictions

One of Demling's surprising 2024 Belmont Stakes picks: He is high on Antiquarian, even though he's a 12-1 longshot. The son of Preservationist and Istan mare Lifetime Memory has just four career starts under his belt, but he has won two of them. His biggest victory occurred May 11 at the Peter Pan Stakes, which is seen as a big stepping stone for the Belmont Stakes.

One blip on Antiquarian's short career is a sixth-place finish at the Louisiana Derby on March 23, although reports surfaced the three-year-old was anxious ahead of the race. He should be in good hands at the Belmont Stakes however with veteran jockey John Velazquez, who has two Belmont Stakes wins under his belt. See which other horses to back at SportsLine.
