Belmont Stakes Betting: With I’ll Have Another Scratch, Dullahan Now Betting Favorite

Belmont Park Race Track The show will go on without Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I’ll Have Another, who was scratched out of the $1 million Belmont Stakes due to tendonitis according to his trainer Doug O’Neill.

The colt was installed as the 4-5 morning line favorite and was seeking to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.

Instead, his racing career appears to be in jeopardy, and he is now the 12th three-year-old that won the first two jewels of the Triple Crown only to be unable to complete the sweep.

Kentucky Derby third place finisher Dullahan is the new morning line favorite at 9-5 in the revised odds released by the New York Racing Association.

The Dale Romans trainee is a two time Grade 1 winner, both of those victories coming over polytrack.

The second choice on the morning line at 3-1 is Union Rags, who had a troubled trip in a seventh place finish in the Kentucky Derby.

The Michael Matz trainee picks up a new jockey in New York veteran John Velazquez.

The third choice on the new morning line is the Bob Baffert trained Paynter, who goes from his original 8-1 to his new morning line odds of 7-2.
