Dullahan currently sits with 5-1 odds to win the 2012 Belmont Stakes and opens the race from the 5th post position. The solid odds make Dullahan one of the biggest race contenders now that I'll Have Another has been scratched from the race with an apparent foot 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.
The 2012 Belmont Stakes start time and official post time is 6:35pm ET this Saturday from Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. This is the 144th running of the Belmont Stakes and was going to be highlighted by I'll Have Another attempting to become only the twelfth Triple Crown winner in history. The Belmont Stakes is the third leg of the Triple Crown and is considered the toughest and most demanding when compared to the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.
