I'll Have Another will have to contend with a possible 10 other horses on his way to becoming a Triple Crown Winner. Below is a look at the possible competitors in the Belmont Stakes and the last Beyer Speed Figure they earned in their last start.
| Horse||Trainer ||Race ||Beyer |
|Atigun ||Kenny McPeek ||CD Allowance ||89 |
|Dullahan ||Dale Romans ||Kentucky Derby ||98 |
|Five Sixteen ||Dominic Schettino ||AQU Allowance ||78 |
|Guyana Star Dweej ||D. Shivmangal ||Belmont Allowance ||70 |
|Optimizer ||D. Wayne Lucas ||Preakness Stakes ||85 |
|Paynter ||Bob Baffert ||Pim Allowance ||106 |
|Ravelo's Boy ||Manuel Azpurua ||TB Derby ||78 |
|Street Life ||Chad Brown ||Peter Pan Stakes ||93 |
|Union Rags ||Michael Matz ||Kentucky Derby ||90 |
|Unstoppable U ||Kenny McPeek ||Belmont Allowance ||82 |
|I'll Have Another ||Doug O'Neill ||Preakness Stakes ||109 |
As expected, I'll Have Another has the top Beyer Speed Figure out of the group of Belmont Stakes 2012
contenders. Going by just speed figures, Paynter (who may have the lead in the race) would be clearly the next fastest horse. Form your opinions now and we'll see if these figures hold sway June 9th.
