Epicharis would pay out $75 for every $10 bet with +750 odds should he win this year’s Belmont Stakes.  These odds were slashed dramatically down to 7/2 Wednesday morning with news that Classic Empire will not be running this race.

Epicharis skipped the first two legs of the Triple Crown.

He won the Hyacinth Stakes back in February before finishing 2nd at the UAE Derby-G2.

"We feel he looked very good and his run in the backstretch was very good," said Japanese trainer Kiyoshi Hagiwara, through an interpreter, of the UAE Derby Sponsored By The Saeed & Mohammed Al Naboodah Group (G2) runner-up. "I believe he will (have) a good performance in the race. ... He recovered from the long flight well—better than Dubai—so he's in good form right now."

Below were your early Belmont Stakes 2017 odds to win:

The history of horse racing in Malaysia is largely influenced by Australian racing.
