Belmont Stakes 2012 Post Postion: I'll Have Another Will Run From Outside At No. 11

If I'll Have Another is going to make history on Saturday as the first horse to win the Triple Crown in more than 30 years, he'll have to do it from a very difficult post position, as the draw for the 2012 Belmont Stakes was announced on Wednesday.

The Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner will be racing from the No. 11 position, as the second-farthest horse from the rail in the entire field.

Dullahan, who many believe could be I'll Have Another's biggest threat, was given the No. 5 position.

Here's how the rest of the field shook out:

1. Street Life

2. Unstoppable U

3. Union Rags

4. Atigun

5. Dullahan

6. Ravelo's Boy

7. Five Sixteen

8. Guyana Star Dweej

9. Paynter

10. Optimizer

11. I'll Have Another

12. My Adonis
