Shackleford Belmont Updated Odds
(The Spread) – Shackleford’s odds for the 2011 Belmont Stakes have changed. Check out our updated odds preview for the 2011 Preakness winner.
Along with Animal Kingdom and Nehro, Shackleford opened as a 4/1 favorite to win the 2011 Belmont Stakes. But according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog, Shackleford now has 9/2 odds, while Animal Kingdom is 2/1 to win and Nehro remains 4/1.
After setting the pace and finishing fourth at the 2011 Kentucky Derby, Shackleford ruined Animal Kingdom’s bid to win the Triple Crown when he edged him out at the 2011 Preakness in May. In his other three outings this year, Shackleford won an allowance on February 5, placed fifth at the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth on February 26 and second at the Grade 1 Florida Derby on April 3.
Despite winning the Preakness, clearly oddsmakers don’t believe Shackleford will edge out Animal Kingdom on Saturday. As previously mentioned, Nehro also has better odds than Shackleford, which makes you believe that oddsmakers think the 2011 Preakness winner might be too wiped to run on the 1.5-mile track tonight.
Post time for the 2011 Belmont Stakes is set for 6:36PM ET. For a list of updates odds for all of the Belmont Stakes’ contenders, see below.
