2012 Preakness: Post Positions Announced

The all-important post positions for the 2012 Preakness have been announced, and odds for each horse will be out shortly thereafter. The eleven horse field features the Kentucky Derby champion I'll Have Another, who looks to inch closer to the Triple Crown, as well as the favorite Bodemeister, and local Dallas-area horse Daddy Nose Best.

The post positions for each horse are as follows:

  1. Tiger Walk
  2. Teeth of the Dog
  3. Pretension
  4. Zetterholm
  5. Went The Day Well
  6. Creative Cause
  7. Bodemeister
  8. Daddy Nose Best
  9. I'll Have Another
  10. Optimizer
  11. Cozzetti

It's certainly worth noting that the Preakness is a shorter race than the Kentucky Derby. The track at Churchill Downs is 1 and 1/4 miles long, whereas the track at the Preakness is 1 and 3/16 miles long.

We'll see what odds Daddy Nose Best comes in with out of the eighth post position. Many eyes will be on the horses next to him, I'll Have Another, but we'll see if Daddy Nose Best is the horse coming from the outside, and if he can spoil any Triple Crown ideas that I'll Have Another might have.

Bodemeister will still likely have the best odds of any horse in the race, and he'll also open alongside Daddy Nose Best, in the No. 7 post position.
