2012 Belmont Stakes Results Updated
|June 9, 2012||Posted by Dave Kingston under Horse Racing News & Info, Other Sports News, Sports Odds, Sports Schedules|
The 2012 Belmont Stakes results come Saturday night with the unfortunate news that the favorite, I’ll Have Another, has been scratched from the race. The horse had suffered a tendonitis injury causing its trainer and team to choose to retire it. So while there won’t be a Triple Crown winner in 2012, there will be a new horse winning in the Belmont race.
Currently, the Belmont Stakes race post time is scheduled for 6:35PM EST on NBC. The event will also be live streaming on the NBC Sports website for fans to watch the excitement of horse racing online. For pre-race coverage, NBC will begin its show at 4:30PM EST, which will also be shown on the live stream site.
Due to I’ll Have Another not competing in this race, it leaves 11 other contenders and a new favorite. Dullahan is currently a 9 to 5 favorite to win the race, followed by Union Rags at 3 to 1. Street Life carries odds of 8 to 1 currently.
Update: Union Rags has won the Belmont Stakes, after edging out Paynter for the finish!
