Belmont Stakes Odds Update: I'll Have Another Remains Big Favorite

With the post positions now decided in the Belmont Stakes, I'll Have Another remains a huge favorite despite receiving a relatively unfavorable draw at the outside of the pack at No. 11.

The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner is getting 4:5 odds to finish off the Triple Crown and win the Belmont on Saturday.

In comparison, I'll Have Another's two biggest challengers, Dullahan and Union Rags, are getting much better odds while also having a better draw. Dullahan (5:1), considered the biggest threat, will be racing from the No. 5 position while Union Rags (6:1) is in the No. 3 position.

Farther back in the field are Paynter (8:1), My Adonis (20:1) and Optimizer (20:1). No other horse is closer than 30:1, while the back end of the field all check in at 50:1.
