While I'll Have Another is the favorite to win the 2012 Belmont Stakes, the horse will be facing an uphill battle when race day actually come. The full post positions were released on Wednesday, and I'll Have Another is all the way back at No. 11, just ahead of the final position at No. 12, where My Adonis is.
Dullahan is considered the horse with the best chance of denying I'll Have Another the coveted Triple Crown and will be starting from the No. 5 post position. Street Life will start it out on the inside, getting the rail to kick off the action on Saturday.
I'll Have Another has done some incredible things over the last two races, with come-from-behind victories in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. The horse is no stranger to snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, and while No. 11 is certainly not ideal, many feel I'll Have Another is up to the challenge.
Here's the full post positions:
- Street Life
- Unstoppable U
- Union Rags
- Ravelo's Boy
- Five Sixteen
- Guyana Star Dweej
- I'll Have Another
- My Adonis
