With the news that I'll Have Another was scratched from the Belmont Stakes on Friday and retiring, a new favorite has emerged in the morning odds. Dullahan is now a 9/5 favorite to win the Belmont Stakes, but the horse no longer will be playing simply spoiler.
After Dullahan in the odds comes Union Rags and Paynter. The race will lose a bit of prestige and attention without the sudden possibility of Triple Crown, but the betting action without I'll Have Another on the board should be rather interesting.
