A field of 10 horses — including Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan and Preakness Stakes winner Seize the Grey — is entered for Saturday’s $2 million Belmont Stakes.

Sierra Leone is the morning-line favorite for the Belmont at 9-5 odds. Trained by Chad Brown, Sierra Leone was the runner-up in the Kentucky Derby, a nose behind Mystik Dan. Sierra Leone drew the No. 9 post for the Belmont.

Mindframe, who is 2 for 2 for trainer Todd Pletcher, is the second choice in the morning line at 7-2 odds.

Pletcher has won the Belmont four times and has three horses in this year’s edition — Peter Pan winner Antiquarian, Peter Pan third-place finisher Protective and Mindframe.

With Belmont Park being renovated, the Belmont Stakes will be held at Saratoga. The distance for Saturday’s race will be 1 ¼ miles, shorter than the Belmont’s traditional distance of 1 ½ miles.

Post time is set for 6:50 p.m. Saturday. The race will be televised by FOX.
