Belmont Stakes 2012 Odds: Lines Have Changed Since Friday, Dullahan Still The Favorite

The 2012 Belmont Stakes is approximately one hour from getting underway, but ever since I'll Have Another has been declared a scratch the odds for the other 11 horses have gotten longer.

Dullahan remains the favorite at 5/1 which is just a bit worse after closing Friday at 9/5. Union Rags odds have changed quite a bit and went from 3/1 to now sitting at 6/1, but they are still second in line behind Dullahan.

Then there is Paynter, which was 7/2, but now 8/1. The long shots also took a big hit as there are now three horses at 50/1 odds in Ravelo's Boy, Five Sixteen and Guyana Star Dweej.

Here are the latest odds:

1-Street Life, 12/1
2-Unstoppable U, 30/1
3-Union Rags, 6/1
4-Atigun, 30/1
5-Dullahan, 5/1
6-Ravelo's Boy, 50/1
7-Five Sixteen, 50/1
8-Guyana Star Dweej, 50/1
9-Paynter, 8/1
10-Optimizer, 20/1
11-I'll Have Another, Scratched
12-My Adonis, 20/1
