Belmont Stakes 2012 Odds: Dullahan Remains Favorite

Headed into the weekend, I'll Have Another was the odds-on favorite to win the 2012 Belmont Stakes, and the first Triple Crown in horse racing since Affirmed. However, I'll Have Another apparently had one too many, and was scratched on Friday.

Without either I'll Have Another or Bodemeister racing, bettors and oddsmakers alike have been scrambling to figure out the new favorite for the last leg of the Triple Crown, but it appears that Dullahan will remain the favorite headed into the race.

Here are the latest odds for the Belmont, sorted by post position:

  1. Street Life, 8-1
  2. Unstoppable U, 20-1
  3. Union Rags, 3-1
  4. Atigun, 15-1
  5. Dullahan, 9-5
  6. Ravelo's Boy, 30-1
  7. Five Sixteen, 30-1
  8. Guyana Star Dweej, 30-1
  9. Paynter, 7-2
  10. Optimizer, 15-1
  11. I'll Have Another, scratched
  12. My Adonis, 15-1
Union Rags, who was the favorite to win the Kentucky Derby, ahead of Bodemeister, has quite favorable odds as well, coming in at 3-1.
