The Man o' War Stakes kicks off the Grade 1 racing at the 2018 Belmont Park spring meeting and the 11-furlong turf marathon had attracted a very solid field of older grass marathoners. This division tends to produce a circuit of hard-knocking veterans and, indeed, the average age of the 10 Man o' War entrants is six-years-old. So it makes since that a factor like Average Lifetime Earnings is a positive indicator in these race types. A very good 42% of the winners ranking first in Average Lifetime Earnings have found the winner's circle for a very healthy $33.40 flat win bet profit.
