2012 Triple Crown: Early Odds Give I'll Have Another The Edge At Belmont Stakes

Will I'll Have Another become the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed did it in 1978? It would seem that way as the horse became a clear-cut favorite with Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes runner-up Bodemeister dropping out of the Belmont Stakes.

Here are the early odds that are likely to fluctuate over the next three weeks:

I'll Have Another 3:2

Union Rags 9:2

Dullahan 5:1

Paynter 6:1

Optimizer 12:1

Mark Valeski 15:1

Alpha 18:1

Atigun 20:1

Five Sixteen 20:1

Rousing Sermon 20:1

Street Life 20:1

Guyana Star Dweej 30:1

Stealcase 30:1

The Belmont Stakes will run on June 9. A win there would make I'll Have Another just the 12th horse ever to win the Triple Crown. The horse has come from behind to win in each of the first two races.
