Derby Contenders Meet Again for Belmont Stakes

Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom will face Preakness Stakes winner Shackelford tomorrow in the final leg of the Triple Crown—the Belmont Stakes.The two horses are the most talked-about in the field of 12, and Animal Kingdom is the early oddsmakers' favorite, breaking from the number nine post.Derby runner-up Nehro has strong odds heading into the race as well and will break from the six post. In the tenth post position will be third-place Derby finisher Mucho Macho Man, which is the only horse in the Belmont to have run in the Derby and Preakness but not win either. European-trained colt Master of Hounds rounds out the list of favorites and will run from the first position.And while a triple crown is out of the question, a victory for Animal Kingdom or Shackelford could help secure the title of Horse of the Year.
