I’ll Have Another opens as Belmont Stakes favorite
Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another is the favorite to win the Belmont Stakes at Lucky’s race and sportsbook in Nevada.
The Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner leads the projected field of 14 with the shortest odds to win at 13/10. Lucky’s is the same book that got burnt by bets on I’ll Have Another to Kentucky Derby at 200/1 back in February.
The Canadian colt closed at 15/1 on Derby day and won the Preakness as a second favorite (+350) behind Bodemeister (+270).
Lucky’s also posted a Yes/No proposition bet on whether or not I’ll Have Another will win the Triple Crown. The “Yes” pays +135 and the “No” is priced at -165.
The Belmont Stakes is the last and longest leg of the three Triple Crown races. I’ll Have Another is the 13th thoroughbred to win the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes since Affirmed - the last Triple Crown winner - in 1978.
