Nehro Updated Belmont Odds
(The Spread) – Nehro will be looking for the elusive second win of his career when he races in the 2011 Belmont Stakes later tonight.
Nehro currently has a back-to-back-to-back second place finish streak at stake, although his ownership would certainly love to see that streak end and replaced with a win.
He finished second at the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby on March 26, second at the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby on April 16 and second at the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby on May 7. He hasn’t won a race since winning a MSW on February 21 of this year.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog currently list Nehro as one of the favorites to win the 2011 Belmont Stakes at 4/1. He also opened at 4/1 and while he did briefly go up to 5/1 earlier this week, his line hasn’t moved much.
Animal Kingdom is the current favorite to win at 2/1 odds, while Shackleford is listed at 9/1. Animal Kingdom won this year’s Kentucky Derby, while Shackleford took home first place in the 2011 Preakness Stakes. For a look at the updated odds for all of the contenders in the 2011 Belmont Stakes, see below.
