I'll Have Another drew the No. 11 post for Saturday's Belmont Stakes, where he'll attempt to become the first Triple Crown winner in 34 years.
The number is only fitting for the historic attempt, as there have been 11 previous Triple Crown winners. And since Affirmed triumphed in 1978, 11 more horses have won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, only to lose in the mile-and-a-half Belmont.
The post position draw was held Wednesday morning, with I'll Have Another installed as the 4-5 morning-line favorite against 11 rivals.
"We're in good shape," said trainer Doug O'Neill, adding that the outside post will give young jockey Mario Gutierrez an opportunity to see how the race unfolds to his inside.
The two main challengers to the Triple Crown bid are thought to be Dullahan, who drew the No. 5 post, and Union Rags, who will break from the third spot.
Dullahan, who finished a fast-closing third in the Kentucky Derby, is listed at 5-1 odds under jockey Javier Castellano.
Union Rags, one of the top two-year-olds last year, was made the third choice at 6-1.
Trained by Michael Matz, Union Rags finished seventh in the Derby after a rough trip and will have a new jockey aboard in John Velazquez, who won the Belmont Stakes in 2007 on Rags to Riches.
The rest of the field, starting with No. 1, is Street Life (12-1), Unstoppable U (30-1), Atigun (30-1), Ravelo's Boy (50-1), Five Sixteen (50-1), Guyana Star Dweej (50-1), Paynter (8-1) Optimizer (20-1) and My Adonis (20-1).
The race is scheduled for 6:40pm ET on Saturday.
