How to watch the Preakness post position draw

Share

Other proven classics sires represented in this Preakness include the late Scat Daddy, whose son Justify gave him a breakthrough victory in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, and Tiznow, who sired 2008 upset Belmont victor Da' Tara and now has Sporting Chance in the Preakness.

Kentucky Derby runner-up Good Magic drew the fifth post position for his rematch with Justify and was rated the second pick for the Preakness at 3-1. Lookin at Lucky is one of the six Preakness winners trained by Bob Baffert, who will saddle Justify at Old Hilltop on Saturday.

WBAL NewsRadio 1090's Preakness coverage comes from Pimlico Race Course starting at 7 a.m. Saturday.

Good Magic was a game second-place finisher to Justify at the Kentucky Derby. He'll be joined by fellow Derby horses such as Good Magic and Lone Sailor, but will also be facing off against a few fresh horses that made a decision to skip the Derby in favor of preparing for the Preakness Stakes, including Diamond King and Quip.

Undefeated through four starts, Justify was rated an odds-on 1-2 morning line favorite after the draw for the eight-horse field in the 1 3/16-mile race at Pimlico.

A repeat of the sloppy track that greeted the 20 horses at the Kentucky Derby seems likely on Saturday with showers and thunderstorms expected in Baltimore this weekend.

Before his Kentucky Derby victory, Justify looked dominant in three races, including the Santa Anita Derby. Exaggerator finished second in the Kentucky Derby before winning the 2016 Preakness, and Irish War Cry was second in last year's Belmont.
