Payouts below are listed for a $2 wager except where noted. So, if you played $5 to win on Tonalist you would multiply the payout times 2.5. If you had a $10 wager you multiply the payout by 5 (you get the picture).

2014 Belmont Stakes Payouts
Tonalist: $20.40 to win, $9.60 to place, $7.00 to show
Commissioner: $23.20 to place, $13,20 to show
Medal Count: $13.20 to show

$2 Exacta (11-8): $348.00
$2 Trifecta (11-8-1): $6,781.00
$2 Superfecta (11-8-1-2): $7,616.00
$2 Superfecta (11-8-1-9): $11,467.00
*Note: California Chrome (2) and Wicked Strong (9) finished in a dead heat for fourth, so there are two superfecta payouts.

Multi-Race Exotics:
$2 Daily Double (8-11): $116.00
$2 Gold Cup / Belmont 288.50 (3-11): $127.00
$2 Pick 3 (1-8-11): $288.50
$2 Pick 4 (5-1-8-11): $425.25
$2 Pick 6 (5-1-5-1-8-11) 6 of 6: $90.671.00
$2 Pick 6 (5-1-5-1-8-11) 5 of 6: $814.00

And now to answer some of the more reoccurring questions…
“$5 trifecta payout 2014 Belmont Stakes” = $16,952.50
“$10 bet to win on Tonalist” = $102.00
“$2 across the board on Tonalist” = $37.00
“$2 2014 Belmont Stakes exacta box payout” = $348.00

Another item of note, the multi-race exotics pay the same regardless of whether you play them straight or box them.

  • Belmont Stakes yesterday – How is the payout calculated if you have a superficial box ticket of the 5 horses including the 2 tied for fourth (11, 8,1, 2 and 9)? Thanks.

  • Well played Todd! You would actually cash two tickets, one for the superfecta with California Chrome and one for the superfecta with Wicked Strong.

    The payouts are listed above, if you played it for a dime the payouts would be $308.80 and $573.35.

  • What would a $15 on Tonalist to win get me?

  • Hi Ill – Tonalist paid $20.40 for a $2 bet, multiply that by 7.5 (your $15 bet divided by the $2 payout) for $153. Nice hit!

  • sirs: i have a 10 cent superfecta box of 1,2,8,9,and 11. since there are 2 payouts (the dead heat for 4th) the total will be around $900.00. are the payouts made separately so that i remain under the $600.00 signer limit or do they combine the two payouts into just 1 payout so i will have to sign for it? thanks for your help.

    sincerely, jim michalak

  • Hi Jim – Way to go on hitting that! I would think that they’d be paid as two separate tickets. The payouts would be $308.80 and $573.35 or around there so you should remain under the $600 threshold for each assuming they do pay as separate tickets. And, I’m a “madame” not a “sir” :)

    Thanks for stopping by!

  • How is it that the Pick 4 (races 8-11) only came out to be around $1,700 for a $2 bet when Tonalist wasn’t even one of the top 3 favorites and when yesterday the pool for the pick 4 was guaranteed to be 1.5 million? The pick 6 and pick 5 were both big payouts, how is it the Pick 4 was so low?

  • Hi Mike – Good question, I’m going to refer it to our resident math and wagering pool expert. He probably won’t answer until tomorrow though. Either way, well played if you had it despite the low payout (I needed Commissioner in the Belmont to hit it, so close!).

  • According to what I just read the pool for the pick 4 yesterday was $2,781,819 so for it to pay out at $850 for a $1 Pick 4 bet, that means that about 1,690 people hit the pick 4 yesterday. Isn’t the probability of that fairly low?

  • Commissioner really bumped up the Trifecta and Superfecta pay outs. Wish I took a few more Trifecta boxes but I was sitting on the Pick 4.

  • Jim – Just confirmed that your five horse box will paid as two separate tickets.

    Mike – We’re looking into it and will have more info for you this evening.

    Thanks for stopping by all!

  • Regarding the all-stakes Pick 4 that concluded with the Belmont Stakes. The total pool was $3,779,258, which means $2,872,236.08 was returned to bettors after the 24% takeout.

    The $1 payout was $212.62 or $106.31 for the minimum bet of $.50

    That means there were 27,017 minimum units sold on the winning combination, or 0.35% of all combinations bought.

    Admittedly, this is more than the win odds of 4.8-to-1, 1.35-to-1, 5.5-to-1, and 9.2-to-1 would suggest, BUT it is likely that both Palace Malice and Tonalist played lower in the multi-race wagers, especially with other logical contenders in the sequence.

  • Can you possibly tell me what a 8,11 exacta box for the Belmont won. $2 total bet

  • I had both commissioner and tonalist going in the pik 3. Do you know what the payoff would have been with commissioner?

  • why was the excata payout so low thought it should have been larger?

  • Tina – the payout is listed above: $348.00. Nice play!

    Mark & Steve – I’m going to refer your questions to Ed. I believe that once the race is over the will-pay information is no longer publicly accessible but Ed will have to address the question about the payout being low.

    Thanks for stopping by all!

  • I think there is a common error on DRF.com and Equibase.com with the payout of the Pick 4 for the Belmont stakes, where they list $2 Pick 4: $425.25
    Example: http://www.drf.com/race-results/BEL/USA/2014-06-07/D

    However, this separate page on DRF.com shows that the $.50 Pick 4 paid $425.25:
    http://www.drf.com/news/belmont-stakes-payoffs

    Is this a mistake, or is this how they always list the Pick 4 payouts?

    Meaning, the reader is just supposed to know that ” $2 Pick 4: $425.25″ always shows the min bet payout, even though they still call it the $2 Pick 4.
    If that is true, that seems quite confusing to me.

    Thanks for any light someone can shed on this.

  • Hi Bill – According to the charts (we have a link to the Brisnet chart above) the $425.25 payout if for the $2 Pick 4. So, DRF.com did mistakenly list it as a $.50 payout on their payouts page (wishful thinking? ha!).

    Unfortunately there’s really no universally accepted standard for reporting payouts with regard to listing them for the $2 bet or the minimum bet. If you look at charts from different tracks you’ll see it handled differently. I can see how this lead to that error, but indeed it is confusing.

    Hope this helps!

  • I’m a novice at horse racing but I took a chance and played $5 trifecta on 11-9-1 :( I really missed out but…I would like to know if I won anything with $2 exacta box on 11-2?

  • Nice pick Shay! Unfortunately brutal beats like that are a part of the game (I had the 1,2,8 trifecta box, equally brutal!). Unfortunately you also did not hit your 11-2 exacta as 2 (California Chrome) ran 4th.

    Keep up the good work with handicapping, you’re definitely on your way to some nice scores!

  • Thanks for responding Dana! And I’m sorry about your bad break too…hopefully we will have better luck in the Travers Stakes in Saratoga and the Breeders Cup! :-)

  • trying to find out how much was in the trifecta pool for Belmont the first four favorites not in the money to say the least chrome I think should have paid much more ty

  • Hi Bob – you can grab the Brisnet chart for the Belmont linked at the top of this post (link = 2014 Belmont Stakes Chart) to find out how much money was in each of the pools. Thanks for stopping by!

  • thanks for your help

  • I left the insanity at Belmont last week without collecting my winnings; just didn’t want to wait on another line! Would you tell me what a $5 bet to show on Medal Count won me?

  • Hi Elaine – Medal Count paid $13.20 to show for a $2 ticket. Multiply that times 2.5 (your $5 bet divided by 2 for the $2 wager) and you cashed a $33 ticket, well done!

    Can’t blame you for getting out of there instead of waiting around! If you don’t plan on going to back to Belmont you can always cash the ticket by mail. The information is listed on this page near the bottom:

  • I bet $8 on acts and took American Pharoah and Frosted. Did I win and if so what is the winnings??

  • Hi Patti, the $2 exacta of American Pharoah and Frosted in the Belmont Stakes paid $13.60. If your total wager was $8 for an exacta box then your ticket is a $4 ticket. Multiply the $2 payout of $13.60 by 2 and you win $33.20. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Exb 1568 what do that pay for Belmont.

  • Hi Yogi, the $2 exacta, which was 5 over 6, payed $13.60 for a $2 ticket. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Triw 8. 2,5. And 12356. What does that pay for Belmont. Thanks

  • Hey Yogi, looks like you didn’t get the 7 in there (Keen Ice), who came in third. So, no tri.

  • I have a ticket that is worth $185.00 from Belmont 2014 what is the address that I mail it to?

  • Hi Mary Ellen, it may be too late that cash that ticket:
    https://www.nyra.com/saratoga/handicapping/nyra-wagering-info/

    It looks like you would’ve had to have sent it in by March 31, 2015. But the address is listed on that page, so you might give it a shot anyway! Not a bad idea to make a copy of the ticket as well. Good luck!
