Is Prat’s Decision To Ride Hot Rod Charlie Disadvantageous for Rombauer?

Is Prat’s Decision To Ride Hot Rod Charlie Disadvantageous for Rombauer?

There are only a few days left to the Belmont Stakes, and fans are eager to witness this historic day. As we all know about the unpredictable nature of the Belmont fields, there is confusion among people to predict the winner. According to experts and the odds, the three new champions are Essential Quality, Hot Rod Charlie, and the Preakness winner Rombauer. But, there is a change between two potential winners. Rombauer and Hot Rod Charlie will not be having their usual riders.




Soon after the victory at Preakness, Flacien Prat announced that he would no longer ride Rombauer. As this news created disappointment among the steeple race fans, Rombauer’s trainer Michael McCarthy also expressed his feeling about this change. In an interview, when asked about the change, McCarthy said that he isn’t sure if he would consider it a disappointment. He also said that he would appreciate it if Rombauer would be running with Prat as the jockey because of the chemistry. However, he also said that his satisfaction with the new jockey, John Velazquez is incredible.

Velazquez is a 49 years old well-known jockey who recently won at Derby riding Medina Spirit. His first victory was historical at the Kentucky Oaks with Malathaat. In 2007 at the Belmont, his victory with Rags to Riches made her the first filly to win after Tanya in 1905. It would be exciting to watch an experienced jockey ride the recently popular horse, Rombauer, at the Belmont. Here are 10 horse racing tips you should know before betting at the Belmont.

The best part about this change is that Prat would be riding the other top contender, Hot Rod Charlie, from Saturday at Belmont. No matter what the result would be, this remarkable modification will be fantastic to witness. Dough O Neill, as the trainer of Hot Rod Charlie, considers the replacement as a huge bonus. By having Prat on his side, he is eager to win at the Belmont.



Hot Rod Charlie is the second experts’ favorite. Even at Derby, he showed his ability by leaving Essential Quality behind. Even though he came third behind Medina Spirit and Mandaloun, he succeeds in grabbing the attention of the audience. Prat creates an amazing bond and chemistry with his horse, and we expect to see the same connection this Saturday. With the capability of Prat and the unpredictability of Hot Rod Charlie, they both can turn the table at Bermont.

With so many exciting changes, predicting the winner at the Bermont can be challenging. Yet, people are enthusiastic about the race. Bermont is famous for its unpredictability; no one has any idea what is going to happen at the “Test of the Champion.” No matter what the changes are, you need to understand the odds and how the betting works before placing your bets.

Belmont isn’t the only exciting event this month. Steeple race fans are also ready to have fun at the Royal Ascot. If you want some punters tips for the Ascot, you can visit this blog. Furthermore, this article will help you with the top favorites for the event.

Punters Tip For 2021 Royal Ascot—Top Favourites



The Royal Ascot begins on Tuesday, in the third week of June, and it’s set to feature the thrills and spills that are synonymous with major sporting events. We take a quick glance at the 2021 Royal Ascot favourites that are currently catching the attention of punters in the ante-post betting markets.

Punters will have the opportunity to predict a winner in hopes that they’ll predict right and smile to the bank. However, with every potential to win comes the potential for a loss. As such, punters require some tips to select a likely winner for the 2021 Royal Ascot.

Below are some horses that are already standing out as a noteworthy challenger for the Royal Ascot:


The 7-year-old horse is dubbed the million-pound horse since he won the €1million prize after becoming victorious in the Ascot Gold Cup, Yorkshire Cup, Lonsdale Cup and Goodwood Cup in 2018.

He had an impressive display in 2018, 2019, and 2020 Royal Ascot as he won the Ascot Gold Cup royal in those three years, and age bettors see him as a noteworthy title defender for this years’ event.

His regular jockey is Frankie Dettori, and since he’s still agile on the horse, nothing seems to prevent him from giving the same dazzling performance he gave in the previous Ascot events. He’s injury-free and seems agile enough for the race—he’s definitely a hot jockey for this years’ Royal Ascot, and it’s sure going to be in years to come.

If Stradivarius and his horse grace this years’ Royal Ascot, punters and bookmakers believe that he’s definitely going to follow the prints of the legendary Yeats, who graced the winners’ enclave four times consecutively from 2006 to 2009.



Battash undoubtedly ranks among the fastest flat racing horses that’ll be gracing the competition, and he showed his superiority in a stylish way when he won the event last year. Punters and bookmakers believe that he’ll be a top-favourite if he lines up for the King’s Stand Stakes. He’ll be expected to defend his title over the 5 furlongs on the first day of the 2021 Royal Ascot event.

He came close to winning the 2018 and 2019 event of the King’s Stand, and finally achieved his dream of being crowned winner at the 2020 renewal. Every odds looks in his favour and bookmakers believe that he currently stands the best chance for punters. The Charles Hills trained 7-year old horse has a good chance to claim a back-to-back victory.



The John Gosden trained horse won the St Jame’s Palace Stakes in 2020 and it was saddled by the hot jockey Frankie Dettori. It was a highly titillating event that got the spectators on their feet, and this year is expected to see a repetition of the excitement.

In that event, Detorri began slowly then gained momentum with less than a furlong left in the race. It overtook punters favourite Pinatubo to win the event by less than a length.

Palace Pier was able to further engrain his supremacy with a victory in the Jacques Le Marois race that stunned spectators. Bookmakers believe that the long break will make him well-tuned enough to recover from the unfortunate event that befell him in last year’s Royal Ascot after his horseshoe was lost; he finished third in that event.



The American-Trained horse is expected to race at the Commonwealth Cup in this Years’ Royal Ascot event. The Wesley Ward trained horse won the Queen Mary Stakes in 2020, and it’s expected to give an impressive performance this year. The 3-year old horse stylishly won a reputable race in France last year before going back to his home country.

Punters should exercise caution stacking on this horse as the Commonwealth Cup is very unpredictable and there are expected to be a lot of horses vying for the crown in this years’ competition.

Can Ms Parfois Cause A Grand National 2019 Upset

Can Ms Parfois Cause A Grand National 2019 Upset  

By now most horse racing fans know that the next big race on the calendar is the 2019 Grand National. Scheduled for Saturday April 6th at 5.15pm, it is the biggest race in Europe with a million pounds up for grabs.

Tiger Roll, last year’s winner, is still on excellent form. A win in the Glenfarclas Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last week propelled him to the top of the odds market where he is now as short as 5/1 to win the Aintree spectacular – again.

But, as in every race, nothing is a sure thing. This year Tiger Roll will have just as much competition and from some unlikely sources. Vintage Clouds and Lake View Lad, both owned by Trevor Hemmings, did very well to finish second and third in the Ultima Chase and Anibale Fly ran the race of his life to finish runner-up in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

But it’s the Grand National runner Ms Parfois, who looks like she could give Tiger Roll a run for his money. The eight-year-old mare may not look like the whole package but scratch beneath the surface and her credentials start to speak for themselves.
