California Chrome is the 3-5 early favorite to win the Belmont Stakes and become horse racing's 12th Triple Crown champion.
Wicked Strong was the 6-1 second choice and drew post No. 9 on Wednesday. The colt finished fourth after an unlucky trip in the Derby and sat out the Preakness.
Tonalist was made the third betting choice at 8-1 odds and will break from the No. 11 post.
Eleven horses were entered to take on California Chrome in his bid to win the Triple Crown for the first time since Affirmed swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont in 1978.
