Following are odds for the Belmont Stakes as of 6 p.m. Eastern time on Friday. Only betting through New York Racing Association outlets - such as at Belmont Park, or through NYRA One accounts - were merged into the pool on Friday, so the handle is a mere fraction of what eventually will be bet into the race, and, at this point, includes no other money bet from around the country.

2. Stay Thirsty, 12-1
3. Ruler On Ice, 42-1
