Triple Crown hopeful I'll Have Another was made the 4-5 favorite as he drew post position 11 for the 1.5 mile Belmont Stakes race. He was the last of 12 horses to move into the secured barn called before Saturday's 144th running of the Grade 1, $1 million.
Upon arrival to the secured barn each horse will be required to have a blood test that will be sent to the state drug laboratory for immediate review. Visitors comings and goings will be logged.
“Millions of race fans from around the world will be witnessing a historic spectacle at New York’s beautiful Belmont Park on June 9, and the Racing and Wagering Board will ensure that the race is run in a safe and fair manner,” Racing and Wagering Board Chairman John D. Sabini said. “The protocols put forth here will protect horses, riders and the betting public and underscore the symbolism of the world-class racing held in New York State.”
