I hope the gambling types out there didn't place any early bets, because they're all likely furious Saturday, the day of the Belmont Stakes. After I'll Have Another, the winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, was scratched Friday, the odds on all 11 remaining horses have gotten longer.
Dullahan remains the favorite but, after closing Friday at 9/5, he opened Saturday morning at 5/1. Union Rags, which was 3/1 Friday, is now 6/1. Paynter, which was 7/2, is now 8/1. Whereas Friday no horse was betting at longer than 30/1 there are now three 50/1 shots — Ravelo's Boy, Five Sixteen and Guyana Star Dweej.
