UPDATE: Another change to the ML odds; Paynter now 7/2, Union Rags 3/1 and the three long shots down to 30/1 from 50/1.
ORIGINAL POST: The initial revised odds for Saturday's Belmont following the scratch of I'll Have Another involve Dullahan becoming the 9/5 morning line favorite, and moving Union Rags the second choice at 5/2. All the other odds are very similar, with Paynter taking a cut from 8/1 to 4/1, and Street Life reduced to 6/1. The three massive long shots all remain at odds of 50/1
I'm not sure how this will impact my betting in any way. At this point, I'm ready to dump a big wager on Paynter, drink a few beers and try not to think about the fact that we just had a Triple Crown contender scratch from the Belmont a day away from the race. It's terribly deflating in every sense of the word. But, as anyone that follows racing knows, it's an unfortunate part of the sport.
