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.
