NEW YORK (AP) -- Big Brown will begin his bid to complete the
Triple Crown by breaking from the No. 1 post in the Belmont Stakes.
The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner drew the inside position
against nine rivals Wednesday. Big Brown is listed at 2-5 odds.

His main challenger, Japanese-bred Casino Drive, will start from
the No. 4 post. He is the 7-2 second choice on the morning line. He
and Big Brown are the only horses with single-digit odds.

Guadalcanal was a surprise late entry. The colt is winless in
five starts for owner-trainer Fred Seitz, but he was second by a
nose while going the Belmont distance of 1 1/2 miles in his last start
on turf at Churchill Downs.
