Justify Draws 7th Position For Preakness

Trainer Bob Baffert walks Kentucky Derby winner Justify through the Preakness Barn after arriving at Pimlico Race Course in preparation for Saturday's 143rd Preakness Stakes

This is because no such horse had won since Apollo, who at age 3 in 1882 won the Kentucky Derby.

We'll have a clearer idea of the odds and each horses chances one post positions are drawn on Wednesday, but for now, you can get a sense of the race schedule for the weekend and where Las Vegas currently has the odds on each horse.

Justify will enter the race as the betting favorite, looking to remain undefeated and win the second leg of the Triple Crown after his dominant performance at the Kentucky Derby. John Cherwa from the Los Angeles Times asks the big question: can Justify repeat at the Preakness?

Before his Kentucky Derby victory, Justify looked dominant in three races, including the Santa Anita Derby.

Baffert is in pursuit of his seventh Preakness win and his first since American Pharoah won in 2015 on his way to a Triple Crown, writes Brian Zipse for Derby Day Racing.

Baffert joked that being such a heavy favorite puts more pressure on Justify, who held off a hard-charging Good Magic in the Derby. Jerry Izenberg of NJ.com wonders if the horse and trainer Chad Brown have a shot to spring the upset at the Preakness.

Quip (12-1) drew the first post while Lone Sailor (15-1), who finished eighth at Churchill Downs, will go from the second post. The stallion takes his shot on Saturday at a third classic victor with Tampa Bay Derby victor Quip, who bypassed the Kentucky Derby to await the Preakness.
