Belmont Stakes: Post time, odds, contenders and post position

Belmont Stakes: Post time, odds, contenders and post position Today is the start third and final leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, and we have all the information you need, including the latest odds, post time and top contenders. Beginning with the post time for the 2008 Belmont Stakes - the race will start at 6:25pm EST and you can watch the race live on ABC. Initially there were 10 contenders for the Belmont Stakes yesterday, but early this morning the second favorite (and only competition to Big Brown) Casino Drive was scratched from the race after an injury. A stone bruise on Casino Drive's left-hind hoof was re-aggravated and he will not participate in the race. So we are now down to only 9 contenders, here is the list, organized by post position: 1 Big Brown, 2 Guadalcanal, 3 Macho Again, 4 Denis of Cork, 5 Casino Drive (Scratched from the race), 6 Da' Tara, 7 Tale of Ekati, 8 Anak Nakal, 9 Ready's Echo and post position 10 Icabad Crane.

 With the departure of Casino Drive, the race went from two-horse down to just Big Brown and the rest. At the online sportsbook BodogSports Big Brown (jokey J. Desotmeaux) is the ultimate favorite with odds to win the 2008 Belmont Stakes at 2/5. The closest contender to Big Brown (by odds) is Denis of Cork (ridden by Albarado), listed at the long 12/1, which is the real testament of Big Brown's the high regards with the odds makers. Tale of Ekati (jokey Coa), Macho Again (jokey Gomez) and Icabad Crane (jokey J. Rose) are all listed with odds 20/1 to win the Belmont Stakes. Guadalcanal is the ultimate underdog of the final Triple Crown race with odds 50/1 and the rest of the Belmont Stakes contenders are sitting on odds 30/1. The weather should be dry for the start time of the 2008 Belmont Stakes with a little bit of clouds and a very small chance of a thunderstorm. Again the Belmont Stakes post time is 6:25pm EST, watch it on ABC.
