Belmont Stakes 2012: I'll Have Another Is The Betting Favorite

The 2012 Belmont Stakes takes place on Saturday, June 9. I'll Have Another is attempting to secure the third and final leg of the Triple Crown to bring home one of the most elusive titles in all of sports. It's been over 30 years since America has been able to cheer for a Triple Crown winner, but I'll Have Another just might do it.

Unlike in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, I'll Have Another will enter the Belmont Stakes as the odds-on favorite. When the line opened, I'll Have Another was the favorite, but his odds have only improved since then.

The current odds have I'll Have Another at 5/4 to win the Belmont Stakes, with Union Rags at 5/1 and Paynter at 9/1. Strong contenders Bodemeister and Gemologist have opted not to run in the Belmont Stakes, so the Triple Crown may very well be within reach.
