2012 Belmont Stakes: Late Additions Threaten I'll Have Another's Triple Crown Bid

The 2012 Belmont Stakes field grew recently, with experienced team Kelly Breen and George Hall sending My Adonis, an understudy in the 2012 Kentucky Derby, into the field at opening odds of 20-to-1. Not quite enough to get I'll Have Another shaking in his horse-boots about a lost Triple Crown bid, sure, but enough to complicate a field that's already difficult to handicap. Breen and Hall won last year's Belmont Stakes with another underdog, Ruler on Ice.

My Adonis joins a field of 12 horses, with Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner I'll Have Another the favorite at 4-to-5 and Derby competitors Union Rags and Dullahan trailing as his top competitors. Paynter and Street Life are the only other horses favored ahead of My Adonis, with the 50-to-1 booby prize going to Ravelo's Boy, Guyana Star Dweej, and Five Sixteen.
