Could horse racing see its first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978 at the 2012 Belmont Stakes next weekend?
I'll Have Another, the horse who has already won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, is a 3-2 favorite to win next Saturday's Belmont Stakes according to the preliminary betting odds one week before the race.
Per Bovada, here are the odds for the rest of the field:
Five Sixteen: 40-1
Guyana Star Dweej: 50-1
I'll Have Another: 3-2
Street Life: 12-1
Union Rags: 9-2
Unstoppable U: 28-1
Ravelo's Boy: 50-1
After I'll Have Another was almost involved in an accident during training, the New York Racing Association designated a 15-minute window during which only Belmont Stakes contenders are allowed to train.
