Preakness Stakes Post Positions For Triple Crown Middle Jewel

I’ll Have Another Draws Post-Position 9 In The Preakness

As the only thoroughbred with a chance to win the 2012 Triple Crown, Kentucky Derby winner I’ll Have Another has drawn post-position 9 for the Preakness. We’re fairly certain that a start from out on Park Heights Avenue wouldn’t bother this Champion as he has three straight wins – two from an inside post and one coming from out of the grandstand at the famed Churchill Downs track during the Derby.

He won the Robert B. Lewis (G2) and then the Santa Anita Derby, both from the four hole, while he was in California. Then came the historic run at the Kentucky Derby as I’ll Have Another burst from the auxiliary chute and became the first horse to win the Run for the Rose from the dreaded 19 post-position.

Bodemeister Looks To Start Fast From Preakness Post-Position 7

Being as the Preakness is the shortest leg of the Triple Crown (1 3/16 mile), speed horses, that break well from the gate, have a decided advantage at “Old Hilltop”. Bodemeister was strong out of the gate from PP 6 at the Kentucky Derby, and controlled the pace throughout the race, before being tracked down and caught with less than a 100 yards to go. At this early stage, we feel that Bodemeister will avenge his Derby Day loss.

Against a somewhat lesser field in the Arkansas Derby Bodemeister was all business. Despite veering slightly right out of the gate from post-position 11 the son of Empire Maker crushed the field as he won by just over nine lengths in his Run for the Roses prep race. We love and respect Bodemeisters take charge attitude.
