The third and final leg of the Triple Crown will be held on June 9 at the Belmont Stakes in New York. I'll Have Another will be the betting favorite as he tries to be the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.

I'll Have Another was not the favorite to win the 2012 Kentucky Derby; Bodemeister was. I'll Have Another chased down Bodemeister to win in the home stretch.

I'll Have Annother was not the favorite to win the 2012 Preakness Stakes; Bodemeister was. I'll Have Another chased down Bodemeister to win in the home stretch.

With two-thirds of the Triple Crown under his belt, I'll Have Another heads to the June 9 Belmont Stakes in New York, looking to be the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed pulled off the feat in 1978.

According to the early odds, I'll Have Another will enter the race as the clear favorite, with the odds currently sitting at 3-2 to win. Union Rags, who missed the Preakness, is at 9-2 and Dullahan is at 5-1. Will we finally see a Triple Crown winner for the first time in over 30 years?
