Preakness Stakes Full Field, Post Time And Odds

Preakness Stakes Full Field, Post Time And Odds
The second leg of the US Triple Crown is set for Saturday from Baltimore's Pimlico Race Course, where eight three-year-old colts will line up in the gate and race 1 3/16 miles on the Pimlico dirt for total purse of $1.5 million and the Preakness Stakes title. All eyes will be on Justify as he tries to take another step toward racing immortality.

2018 Preakness Stakes Post Postions

In sharp contrast to the 20-horse field of the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness will feature a much smaller field, with four runners coming from the Derby to contest the Preakness, and four other new shooters joining the fray. What won’t be in contrast to the Derby is the weather and track conditions, as steady rain through Friday and possible thunderstorms on Saturday will likely leave the Pimlico track a quagmire. 

Here’s a look at how they’ll line up in the gate, their current race record, and a review of how they got to Baltimore.
