With much anticipation, the drawing took place on Wednesday morning for the post positions in the 2012 Belmont Stakes. I'll Have Another got a tough draw, getting the 11th pole position in the final leg of the triple crown.

While many will say the road just got tougher for the colt, his trainer doesn't seem overly concerned about their plight.

"It's been an unbelievable ride and I believe we've just stayed focused," said Doug O'Neill.

Dullahan, the favorite sans I'll Have Another, got a solid position at No. 5. Multiple experts like Dullahan's chances and this should just continue to fan those flames.
