Belmont Stakes 2012: Post Positions, Start Time, Latest Odds And More

The 2012 Belmont Stakes lost much of its luster when Triple Crown candidate I'll Have Another was pulled out of the race by his trainers due to a leg injury. But for the 11 horses, jockeys and owners still in the race, the Belmont represents a chance for both glory and a massive payday. With I'll Have Another's absence, the odds of victory increased for the rest of the horses, including favorites Dullahan and Paynter.

Here are post positions and odds for today's race:

1. Street Life, 8/1
2. Unstoppable U, 20/1
3. Union Rags, 3/1
4. Atigun, 15/1
5. Dullahan, 9/5
6. Ravelo's Boy, 30/1
7. Five Sixteen, 30/1
8. Guyana Star Dweej, 30/1
9. Paynter, 7/2
10. Optimizer, 15/1
11. I'll Have Another
12. My Adonis, 15/1
