The $1M Preakness Stakes (G1) will take place at Pimlico Race Course this year on Saturday, May 19. Though the Kentucky Derby has just ended, we learned a lot about some of the top finishers and how they might do in the second leg of the Triple Crown. Take a closer look at top contenders Ill Have Another, Bodemeister and Went the Day Well.
Sent off in the Kentucky Derby at 15-1 odds, I'll Have Another surprised pacesetter Bodemeister late in the stretch run by overtaking him and powering through to a 1 ½ length victory. Whether I'll Have Another can turn on the speed earlier on and maintain it will be his key to victory in the Preakness Stakes. Find Preakness Stakes odds on I'll Have Another at the Bovada Racebook.
Bodemeister nearly made history with his bold attempt at a wire-to-wire victory in the Kentucky Derby. He had a 3-length advantage on his closest competitor going into the final furlong before he was run down by I'll Have Another. Whether Bodemeister can bounce back from that effort and turn in a repeat showing in the Preakness Stakes is the big question, but all signs seem to be pointing to another sharp outing. Make your 2012 Preakness Stakes bet on Bodemeister with Bovada Racebook.
Another Kentucky Derby starter who is scheduled to start in the Preakness Stakes is fourth-place finisher Went the Day Well. Went the Day Well had to contend with traffic issues in the Kentucky Derby but finished well. The smaller 14-horse field will suit Went the Day Well, who showed good turn of foot in the Spiral Stakes (G3) on March 24.
