With Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes runner-up Bodemeister out of the field, I'll Have Another was the easy choice to win the Belmont.

Here are the early odds that are likely to fluctuate over the next three weeks:

I'll Have Another 3:2

Union Rags 9:2

Dullahan 5:1

Paynter 6:1

Optimizer 12:1

Mark Valeski 15:1

Alpha 18:1

Atigun 20:1

Five Sixteen 20:1

Rousing Sermon 20:1

Street Life 20:1

Guyana Star Dweej 30:1

Stealcase 30:1

A win for I'll Have Another will make him the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed did it in 1978.
