The Triple Crown is the most coveted prize in horse racing. Prior to Friday's shocking news, it looked like the sport may have had its first Triple Crown winner since 1978, but I'll Have Another was forced to withdraw from the race.
That leaves a tightly packed field of 11 horses. Dullahan takes over as the favorite, but is closely followed in the odds by Union Rags and Paynter.
Post time for the race is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. Eastern. The race will be broadcast on NBC, and coverage of the race starts at 4:35 p.m. Eastern. Fans can also watch the race live online at NBCSports.com. Updated odds are available here.
Post positions for the race are as follows:
8-Guyana Star Dweej
11-I'll Have Another
