I'll Have Another pulled another unbelievable victory away from Bodemeister after trailing for most of the race. The people who are obviously most pleased are jockey Mario Gutierrez and trainer Doug O'Neill, but bettors will also be pleased.
Odds had Bodemeister and I'll Have Another far away the favorites to finish first and second in the last odds before the race and, well, that was pretty accurate, as those horses didn't really have any competition for the field. But it wasn't perfectly accurate, as it ended up turning out the other way, with the favorite finishing second and the presumptive second-place finisher one race away from being the first Triple Crown winner in almost a quarter-century.
Here's the payouts from today's race for win, place and show.
I'll Have Another: 8.40, 3.80, 2.80
Bodemeister: 3.20, 2.80
