Belmont Stakes 2012: Post Positions, TV Schedule, Live Coverage And More

Though there won't be a Triple Crown winner on Saturday evening, the show must go on in New York. The 2012 Belmont Stakes is set to get underway on Saturday evening, even without horse racing's latest star I'll Have Another, who was scratched on Friday and subsequently retired from horse racing.

Post positions, and odds, for the entire field are as follows for the Belmont Stakes:

  1. Street Life, 8-1
  2. Unstoppable U, 20-1
  3. Union Rags, 3-1
  4. Atigun, 15-1
  5. Dullahan, 9-5
  6. Ravelo's Boy, 30-1
  7. Five Sixteen, 30-1
  8. Guyana Star Dweej, 30-1
  9. Paynter, 7-2
  10. Optimizer, 15-1
  11. I'll Have Another, scratched
  12. My Adonis, 15-1
Televised coverage for the 2012 Belmont will begin at 3:00 p.m. Eastern, 2:00 p.m. Central on NBC Sports Network. Coverage will then shift to NBC at 4:30 p.m. Eastern, 3:30 p.m. Central.

Post time is not until 6:30 p.m. ET, 5:30 CT, so if you're only interested in the race itself, you'd be wise to tune in around 6:25 ET, 5:25 CT.
