The United States Triple Crown of horse racing has not been won since ‘Affirmed’ pulled off the feat way back in 1978. Since then 11 horses have had the opportunity to complete the trio heading into the Belmont Stakes, but each of these horses fell short. This year ‘I’ll Have Another’ has set up his opportunity with some big wins at the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes and many horse racing enthusiasts feel that ‘I’ll Have Another’ has the stamina to take on the extra quarter mile that the Belmont Stakes race requires and pass the last ‘Test of a Champion”.
‘I’ll Have Another’ defeated Bodemeister in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes races, but with Bodemeister sitting out of the Belmont Stakes race the door is wide open for ‘I’ll Have Another’ to make history this coming Saturday. Every online racebook will be offering odds on ‘I’ll Have Another’ and his competitors to win the race and you can expect the betting on the Belmont Stakes race to be just as popular as the Kentucky Derby was now that the Triple Crown is on the line.
