2012 Belmont Stakes: Watchmaker Odds Released, I'll Have Another 3-5 Favorite

As official training sessions took place Sunday at Belmont Park and times for some thoroughbreds became available for oddsmakers, the first of many lines have been released. The Watchmaker odds, made famously by Daily Racing Form oddsmaker Mike Watchmaker, have Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner I'll Have Another as a 3-5 favorite to win the last leg of the Triple Crown.

I'll Have Another is trying to become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the crown of all three races, while Dullahan (5-1), Union Rags (6-1) and Paynter (8-1) are the best bets, respectively, to upend the favorite, says Watchmaker.
