The climax of Belmont Stakes week is finally here with the dawn of Belmont Stakes day; it's all falling action after American Pharoah ends up on one of two lists: Those who did or those who didn't.

I've been in both categories with my picks this week. I "did" on Thursday with a bevy of "A" picks winning and "did not" on Friday when longshots showed up but mostly in my "C" column. We're up on the week, though, and looking to continue the trend on Belmont Stakes day featuring an exciting 11-race card. For how I'm betting the Belmont Stakes (and not American Pharoah) specifically, click here.

It's a card that's as challenging as it is exciting, and the type of card where you have to take some stands, so the ABC grid below was made with that in mind. Most of the races feature a deep list of contenders, but you can't go 6 deep in every race and just hope for the best. So I'm narrow in some races on stronger opinions with the hope of getting to spread to some prices around it.
