Triple Crown Championship: Belmont Stakes Post Position Draw

Triple Crown Journey Starts From Post Position #11

With the thoroughbred horse racing Triple Crown on the line, the Post Position Draw for the 144th running of the Belmont Stakes has just been completed at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Morning line favorite, and potential (eventual) Triple Crown Champion, I’ll Have Another has drawn post position number 11. Maybe they should also make him start a half furlong behind the rest of the field to make the Belmont a fair race!

As we mentioned prior to the Preakness Stakes – this brilliant 3-year old Chestnut Colt could start in the parking lot and would still track down the field before the wire. Yours truly has been a horse racing fan all his life, and this Canadian owned Champion has captured my heart. Guts usually equates to glory and we feel this phenomenal thoroughbred is destined for the Triple Crown winners circle on Saturday afternoon.

Belmont Stakes Contenders: Spoilers Lurking At The Starting Gate

While we see this shaping up as a one horse race, if an entry is going to spoil the Triple Crown party at the Belmont we suggest keeping an eye on Dullahan and Union Rags who also ran in the Kentucky Derby. Both of them were beaten by I’ll Have Another but Dullahan was a hard charging third, while Union Rags bobbled out the gate, then got squeezed, and then had to race in mass traffic throughout the Run for the Roses.

New shooters with a chance to cash in on an Exactor in the Belmont, that didn’t race in the first two legs of the Triple Crown, include Paynter and Street Life. Paynter has a Win and a Place in his last two races but he was fourth in the Santa Anita Derby. Street Life last ran in the G2 Peter Pan at Belmont Park back on May 5, 2012, where he went from last to third, with some gas still left in the tank, during a blazing run down the stretch.

Here is the complete Post Position and morning line rundown for the 2012 Belmont Stakes:

PP Belmont Stakes – 11⁄2 Miles – ODDS/1

1 Street Life 12
2 Unstoppable U 30
3 Union Rags 6
4 Atigun 30
5 Dullahan 5
6 Ravelo’s Boy 50
7 Five Sixteen 50
8 Guyana Star Dweej 50
9 Paynter 8
10 Optimizer 20
11 I’ll Have Another 4 to 5
12 My Adonis 20
