137th Preakness Stakes

(David Phillip/AP)

We’re only a half-hour away from the 137th running of the Preakness Stakes, the second leg of horse racing’s Triple Crown. Of course, the Derby winner I’ll Have Another is in the field of eleven horses in the ninth post, flanked by other Kentucky Derby runners Optimizer on the outside and Daddy Nose Best on the inside. Other familiar names in the field are Went the Day Well, Creative Cause, and the horse that nearly took the garland of roses two weeks ago, Bodemeister.

Bodemesiter is the morning line favorite at 8/5, with I’ll Have Another close behind at 5/2. It is likely betters have favored Bodemeister today, as the Preakness is half of a furlong shorter than the Derby, so if the Derby race is any indication, Bodemeister might have the edge. His solid lead coming down the stretch to the finish was surpassed only by I’ll Have Another and his late push to just beat him by a nose. But horses are temperamental creatures, and crazy things can happen.

Big Brown was the last horse to come close to winning all three races in 2008. He won the Derby and Preakness, but lost to a longshot in the Belmont. Here’s to hoping I’ll Have Another makes a strong showing and keeps the interest in horse racing this season, outside the Bluegrass, alive for a little bit longer.

Post time is scheduled for 6:05 and coverage is on NBC. If you’ve made bets, good luck to you. Or, you can take Colin Cowherd’s advice.

    Shows you what sports people know, they can but most horses don’t sleep standing up.

    I’ll Have Another produced a strong finish to catch the front-running Bodemeister in the closing stages and win by one and a half lengths

    #1 I can’t believe you took what Collin said serious. Watch one show of sports nation and you’ll see thats how he is. And all you told me he was right

    The fact that you read and/or follow Collin Cowherd is pretty embarrassing. He’s a pompous ass and I’ve boycotted him ever since his statements about John Wall.

    Horse Racing really needs a Triple Crown winner – it is the toughest thing in sports to accomplish.

    reports say Cal signed the day b4, but It was the worst April fools joke ever announced for the college basketball world B/C it wasn’t a joke.

    I like Collin Cowherd he’ll feed you sum bs alot but always gives his opinion not the same one that sounds right like everybody else does in the media.

    I agree with you 15…so can sum1 tell us if I’ll Have Another won? I won’t care anything about the races if he doesn’t

    21…I wouldn’t say “it wasn’t close”. I would think winning by a neck is a lot closer than “lengths”. Not a photo finish of course but to some..yeah it was a little close.

    Hey bluristhurr, you can log on to this site and yet no other sports site in the world that would give you the preakness winner? That is one unusual internet blocking service your employer has there.

    Roland & Blur you 2 run along and get drugged up. Run along now and when you kick the habit enough to realize there is a world out here, maybe we can comprehend what the hell you are talking about.

    Cat Fans, If you can come out of your “my head is up my ass” stupor of just not getting this site, you can realize that this site doesn’t want you to know what they are talking about or (god forbid) you might figure out, they just being silly. (I will regret this post)

    38) There is a difference in being ridiculous and muttering crap no one, no one understands as your friend blur has done. When you and himstarted citing drugs as your highlight, it all made sense. Be proud moron.
