The 2012 Belmont Stakes is centered on I'll Have Another and the possibility of writing another chapter in Triple Crown history, so it is no surprise that the odds project him as a 4/5 favorite. At the No. 11 post position I'll Have Another will have a great opportunity to run on the outside of his competition, which is something that has worked well for him earlier in the racing season this year.
Here is a complete look at the morning line from Thursday and the post positions for each contender:
