2012 Belmont Stakes Odds: Ravelo's Boy, Five Sixteen Among Biggest Underdogs

The running of the 2012 Belmont Stakes will not be as entertaining without Triple Crown candidate I'll Have Another in the field, but we should still be in for a great day of racing on Saturday. The new favorites to watch for: Dullahan, who is at 5-1 odds, Union Rags at 6-1 odds and Paynter at 8-1.

The three biggest long shots on Saturday will be Ravelo's Boy, Five Sixteen and Guyana Star Dweej, who are all at 50-1 odds. Not exactly the numbers you look for if placing a bet on a horse, but it would be quite the story if one of these three could pull off a victory.

Here are the rest of the updated odds for the field:

1. Street Life (Jose Lezcano, 12-1)
2. Unstoppable U (Junior Alvarado, 30-1)
3. Union Rags (John Velazquez, 6-1)
4. Atigun (Julien Leparoux, 30-1)
5. Dullahan (Javier Castellano, 5-1)
6. Ravelo's Boy (Alex Solis, 50-1)
7. Five Sixteen (Rosie Napravnik, 50-1)
8. Guyana Star Dweej (Kent Desormeaux, 50-1)
9. Paynter (Mike Smith, 8-1)
10. Optimizer (Corey Nakatani, 20-1)
I'll Have Another (Mario Gutierrez, 4-5) SCRATCHED
11. My Adonis (Ramon Dominguez, 20-1)
