The 2012 Belmont Stakes will be taking place in New York on Saturday. Although viewers will not have a chance to see a Triple Crown this year, the race should still be an exciting one, as the third leg of the triumvirate of thoroughbred racing rarely disappoints.
On Friday, I'll Have Another became just the third horse in history to pull out of the Belmont Stakes after winning both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. The most recent horse to pull out after capturing the first two legs of the Triple Crown did so in the 1930s.
Dullahan is the new betting favorite to win the Belmont Stakes, with Union Rags and Paynter Close behind.
