I'll Have Another and jockey Mario Gutierrez look to win the second leg of the Triple Crown.
I'll Have Another won the 2012 Kentucky Derby and will, of course, enter the 2012 Preakness Stakes with a chance at keeping the Triple Crown dream alive. But he isn't the favorite heading into Saturday's race; that distinction falls on Bodemeister, who was leading the Derby until I'll Have Another's furious sprint to the front of the back.
Bodemeister, who will start in the No. 7 pole position, comes into the race as a 7/4 favorite to take the Preakness title. I'll Have Another is close behind at 5/2, and he'll take off from the ninth position. Rounding out the top four are Went the Day Well, at 6/1, and Creative Cause, at 7/1, the fourth and fifth finishers in the Derby, respectively. Third place finisher Dullahan will not participate.
Race date/time: Saturday, May 19, 5:00 p.m. ET
Location: Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, Md.
