2012 Belmont Stakes: Current Odds and Trifecta Betting Predictions

belmont-parkThe 2012 Belmont Stakes is just nine days away and the run for the 2012 Triple Crown will be in the books, many are asking if I'll HAVE ANOTHER can win the third jewel of the 2012 Triple Crown. The current Belmont odds undoubtedly favor the colt which in both the 2012 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes made a final stretch win look easy. But, I'LL HAVE ANOTHER's main rival in the first two races has returned to California, so now, the question many ask is who is the next challenger.

The current 2012 Belmont odds have a few familiar names, OPTIMIZER, DULLAHAN, and UNION RAGS all have a shot to snatch the third jewel of the Triple Crown. These Belmont Stakes contenders, along with the favorite to win the Belmont Stakes comprise the perfect Trifecta betting opportunity. Each year I can't help myself and always take my shot at a trifecta prediction that I believe will fill my account with cash. This years trifecta prediction is a tough call since there are two longshots I like for the 2012 Belmont Stakes.

OPTIMIZER is one of my favorite longshots and I would like to add the colt to our trifecta predictions, but the surface in New York may pose a problem for the D. Wayne Lukas trained colt, so including OPTIMIZER at 30/1 in our 2012 Belmont Stakes trifecta prediction may not be the most logical choice. DULLAHAN is another questionable choice for our 2012 Belmont Stakes trifecta predictions, DULLAHAN at 9/2, has never won on dirt but finished third in the 2012 Kentucky Derby. UNION RAGS is currently listed as a Belmont Stakes odds favorite at 9/2 and earned his last win at the Fountain of Youth Stakes in convincing fashion.

A horse to watch is UNSTOPPABLE U, with wins in his last two at Belmont and Aqueduct, this speedy colt finished 1st at 6 furlongs and at mile and a 1/8th. The current Belmont Stakes odds show UNSTOPPABLE U listed as a 30/1 longshot, which could make a winning trifecta pick that includes UNSTOPPABLE U a solid investment. Going the distance is the big question for this horse but worth a shot for our 2012 Belmont Stakes trifecta predictions.
