8. Vino Rosso (8-1)

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - HORSE RACING -

Own­ers: Sta­ble Trainer: Todd Pletcher Jockey: John Velazquez Record: 3-0-1 in six starts No­table: Didn’t re­ally make an im­pact in the Derby, fin­ish­ing ninth, but has fol­lowed the Pletcher model of skip­ping the Preak­ness and re­turn­ing to his home track to pre­pare for this race. If he runs back to his Wood Me­mo­rial win in April, he’ll have a chance. But that race, so far, stands out as the anom­aly in a medi­ocre ca­reer thus far against stakes com­pe­ti­tion. Re­pole Sta­ble and St. Elias

9. No­ble Indy (30-1)

Own­ers: Sta­ble Trainer: Todd Pletcher Jockey: Javier Castel­lano Record: 3-0-1 in five starts No­table: Co-owner Mike Re­pole, a New Yorker who is also part­ners in Vino Rosso, wants to win the Belmont more than any other race. Typ­i­cally a horse with early speed, he didn’t seem to like the track in the Derby, as he ended up set­tling in about 5 lengths off the lead be­fore fad­ing to 17th. He’ll be a likely can­di­date to set the pace this time. WinS­tar Farm and Re­pole

10. Blended Citizen (15-1)
