Current Belmont Stakes Odds: Nehro, Master Of Hounds Closing On Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom opened as the favorite in the 2011 Belmont Stakes, and has been the favorite throughout the week. The current Belmont Stakes odds, though, have other horses closing on the Kentucky Derby winner.

Animal Kingdom remains a 5-2 favorite to win the Belmont, but Nehro has closed from 5-1 to 7-2, and Master of Hounds has moved from 5-1 to 4-1. Even Preakness winner Shackleford, considered a long shot for most of the week, has had his odds drop, from 16-1 to 10-1.
