Preakness 2012 Live: Complete Guide to Watching 2nd Leg of Triple Crown

The 137th running of the Preakness Stakes doesn't come with the fanfare of the Kentucky Derby, but it's no less important to the almighty Triple Crown of horse racing.

Today at Pimlico Race Course, I'll Have Another takes his stab at greatness in an attempt to win the second leg, but he won't have an easy run at it.

Derby runner-up Bodemeister will set the pace again and could easily run away with the race.

Eleven horses total fill out the field and, as we know, anything can happen when they break from the gate.

With that said, here's a look at everything you need to know.

8. Daddy Nose Best

9. I'll Have Another

10. Optimizer

11. Cozzetti

 

Both Bodemeister and I'll Have Another drew favorable positions. Neither jockey's race strategy will be hindered at all and they should finish this race one-two.

Derby holdovers Went the Day Well and Creative Cause have potential, as does Daddy Nose Best, but unfortunately the latter is sandwiched between the two favorites. 

Teeth of the Dog, Zetterholm and Tiger Walk lead the other horses to watch.
