2012 Belmont Stakes: Updated Odds

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.

If horse racing didn't have bad luck, they'd have no luck at all.
