Union Rags Odds - Belmont Stakes Contenders

Union Rags currently sits at 6-1 odds to win the 2012 Belmont Stakes and opens from the 3rd position. Jockey Julien Leparoux will ride the horse once again, which is considered to be one of the contenders now that I'll Have Another has been scratched from the race. 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 was going to be highlighted by I'll Have Another attempting to become only the twelfth Triple Crown winner in history.

Union Rags has a lifetime career of seven races and has four wins, one place and one show. The horse has a combined winnings of more than $1,100,000 in just two years on the major circuit. Leparoux and Union Rags will probably be a very sexy pick at the Belmont Stakes because of the Triple Crown curse. Also, Union Rags ran well at both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, so he might be the best horse in the race now that I'll Have Another no longer will be racing for history. The horse should be fairly comfortable running on this track and has a very real shot at winning the race overall, in addition to probably finishing very well with exotic bets.
