2012 Belmont Stakes Predictions: New Favorites Following the Scratch of I’ll Have Another

2012 Belmont Stakes Predictions: New Favorites Following the Scratch of I’ll Have Another: Winning the Triple Crown has proved to be too much for any horse for the last 34 years, and I’ll Have Another’s bid to end the drought is officially over before it began. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner was scratched from Saturday’s Belmont Stakes because of a leg injury. The extent of the injury remains to be seen, but a tendon issue in the horse’s front leg prompted his trainers to make the decision. Attempting a 1 ½-race on the Belmont’s sandy surface with a horse that is less than 100 percent is a recipe for disaster. The injury isn’t fatal, but it is the nail in the coffin for I’ll Have Another’s bid to become the 12th Triple Crown winner in horse racing history.

The announcement strips the race of its biggest storyline and basically all of the drama. Win or lose, the media and fans wanted to watch I’ll Have Another’s pursuit of history, and that is no longer an option. On the plus side, it does make things a little more wide open as far as bettors are concerned. I’ll Have Another was 4/5 favorite to win Saturday’s Race, and with the favorite now out of the mix, the Belmont is up for grabs.

The Favorites – 2012 Belmont Stakes Odds, Free Picks and Predictions

Things have really fallen into place for Dullahan. The horse finished a hard-charging third in the Kentucky Derby, and with I’ll Have Another scratched and Bodemeister not entered, the two horses that defeated him in the “Rune for the Roses” won’t be on the track Saturday. As his late surge to the front from the far post in the Kentucky Derby suggests, Dullahan isn’t lacking in the stamina department. The 1 ½-mile layout of the Belmont should play to the horse’s strengths, especially since he is well rested after skipping the Preakness. On paper, he is the best horse left in the field this weekend.

Last year, a runner-up effort in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile put Union Rags on the short list of horses to watch in 2012. A win at Champagne early in this season added to the hype, but the horse quickly faded into irrelevancy following his lackluster showing in the Kentucky Derby. However, it is worth pointing out that Union Rags was bumped in traffic at Churchill Downs, and he suffered the same fate in his mediocre run in the Florida Derby earlier in the year. The Belmont field is much smaller, which should take navigating traffic out of the equation. Union Rags should finally have a chance to showcase his talent Saturday.

The Dark Horses – 2012 Belmont Stakes Odds, Free Picks and Predictions

Bob Baffert is resting his big gun Bodemeister this weekend, but the trainer will enter Paynter in the Belmont Stakes. Interestingly enough, there are a lot of similarities between Paynter, and the horse that Baffert almost saw win him another Kentucky Derby and Preakness just a few weeks ago. Like Bodemeister, Paynter didn’t run a race as a two year old, but he has impressed this season. He crushed the field in the Preakness undercard in his most-recent outing, and he was strong in his Belmont warm-up sessions. Paynter hasn’t necessarily faced the toughest competition in his starts, but he should still be able to make some noise at the Belmont.

The Sleeper – 2012 Belmont Stakes Odds, Free Picks and Predictions

Winning the Belmont requires a horse to have an ample amount of stamina, and Optimizer’s pedigree points to a horse that should excel at distance running. Granted, the horse was a bust at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, but he has a few things working in his favor this weekend. There is a smaller, weaker field that is lacking the powerhouses I’ll Have Another and Bodemeister, and the Belmont’s 1 ½-mile distance fits Optimizer’s running style. He has consistently been moving forward at the end of all his races, and his long-run strength could prevail Saturday.

2012 Belmont Stakes Vegas Odds and Free Picks – Favorites, Dark Horses and Sleepers to Win the 144th Belmont

2012 Belmont Stakes Vegas Odds and Free Picks – Favorites, Dark Horses and Sleepers to Win the 144th Belmont: In 1978, Affirmed became the 11th horse to win the Triple Crown. Thirty-four years later, horse racing is still waiting for its next Triple Crown winner. I’ll Have Another has a chance to snap the drought this weekend, when he attempts to follow his victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes with a win in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes. The underdog horse has already defied the odds by even being in this position, but recent history suggests that magical run for the Triple Crown will fall by wayside on the 1 ½-mile track in New York.

Since Affirmed joined the list of Triple Crown winner in ’78, eleven horses have headed to the Belmont in the same position I’ll Have Another sits in this weekend. All 11 failed to win the Triple Crown. The most recent horse to have a chance was Big Brown in 2008, but foot issues forced his jockey to ease him heading into the stretch run. Silver Charm (1997), Real Quiet (1998) and Smarty Jones (2004) have been the closest to achieving immortality during the drought, with each horse losing the Belmont by a length or less.

If I’ll Have Another is going to end the drought and make history this weekend, it is going to take a flawless performance from everyone involved. The horse’s eating habits will be monitored down to the bite, and his warm-up runs have to be effective but not over-exerting. Jockey Mario Gutierrez knew exactly when to turn the horse loose in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. He has to stay patient and time the final push perfectly one more time. All the stars have to align for history to be made.

The Favorite – 2012 Belmont Stakes Odds, Free Picks and Predictions

It comes down to this weekend’s race for I’ll Have Another. On the plus side, his top rival Bodemeister is not going to be competing this weekend. On the other hand, there are several strong horses in the field that have been resting while I’ll Have Another was winning the Preakness Stakes. Not to mention the fact that the last 11 horses that have tried to pull off this Triple Crown thing have failed. History may not be on his side, but there is still no other horse that deserves to be the favorite this weekend.

The Dark Horses – 2012 Belmont Stakes Odds, Free Picks and Predictions

Bob Baffert knows a thing or two about seeing Triple Crown hopes dashed. The trainer won’t run Bodemeister in the Belmont, but he will send Paynter into the fight. The horse didn’t run as a two year old, but his four starts this year have been encouraging. Paynter won his debut race, finished second in the Derby Trial and crushed the field in the Preakness undercard. The horse has posted fast times in his workouts for the Belmont, and the well-rested and steadily improving horse could prevent a Triple Crown winner this weekend.

There have been high expectations for Union Rags since his win at Champagne earlier this year and his runner-up effort in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile. However, the horse disappointed in the Florida Derby and the Kentucky Derby, getting boxed in and failing to work through traffic. At this point, it is somewhat of an unknown as to whether or not Union Rags is the potential force everyone thought he would or just an underachiever. In the smaller Belmont field, should have a chance to answer the questions this weekend.

After a third-place finish in the Kentucky Derby when he was closing hard on the top two, Dullahan passed on the Preakness. The horse will be back in the field for the Belmont, and he could cause problems for I’ll Have Another’s Triple Crown bid. Dullahan has looked comfortable in morning workouts on the Belmont’s tricky sandy surface, posting consistently fast splits. The horse’s stamina looked first class in the Kentucky Derby, and heading into the longest leg of the Triple Crown, Dullahan could I’ll Have Another a taste of his own medicine with a late surge.

The Sleeper – 2012 Belmont Stakes Odds, Free Picks and Predictions

Although he underwhelmed in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, Optimizer was bred to be a distance runner. Races don’t get any longer than the Belmont, and while he failed to keep up with the frontrunners in the first two legs of the Triple Crown, he could come to life in the added distance of Saturday’s race. Even in some of his poor finishes, Optimizer was moving forward in the final stages. If he can stay within striking distance of the lead, his closing burst could be enough to deliver the upset.

5752 Dullahan +400
5753 Five Sixteen +4500
