The odds-on favorite to win the 2012 Belmont Stakes is Dullahan with current odds of 9-5. The horse will open from the fifth position at the Belmont. The solid odds make Dullahan the favorite to win the race after I'll Have Another had to drop out of contention due to a leg injury.
Dullahan has competed in nine races to date and has picked up two victories overall. He's also placed twice and had three shows on the circuit. The horse and jockey Javier Castellano have won just under $1,100,000 in their time together. Now that I'll Have Another will no longer be in the race, Dullahan is going to become one of the two or three favorites to claim the 2012 Belmont Stakes. He has been a strong horse all season. Dullahan has had five weeks to recoup from the Kentucky Derby, where he finished in third place.
