Justify draws 7 post, is 1-2 Preakness favorite

Justify solid favorite in Preakness Stakes

After another dominant performance at the Kentucky Derby, Justify will enter the race as the odds-on favorite, hoping for another victory on his way to a potential Triple Crown.

A almost 136-year-old streak of odd luck, set on May 16, 1882, was broken May 5 of this year, with the victory of 3-year-old Justify in the Kentucky Derby.

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.

This will be the fourth consecutive year that the top two finishers in the Kentucky Derby have a rematch in the Preakness.

On Wednesday afternoon, we'll learn just where he starts Saturday at Pimlico Race Course as he continues his pursuit of the Triple Crown.

Four new challengers for Justify are in the Preakness field - Diamond King, Quip, Sporting Chance and Tenfold.

Post time for the 143 Preakness Stakes is set for 5:20 p.m. CDT Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. The horse was "closing well" at both the Kentucky Derby and Louisiana Derby, Goldberg said, and could hit the board at the Preakness.

The importance of post position is slightly lesser for the Preakness, the shortest of the three Triple Crown events, given it is typically a much smaller field compared to the Kentucky Derby.

Justify did have a hoof issue coming out of the Kentucky Derby, and a specialist flew in from Florida to re-shoe the horse's foot, writes Fran Jurga for HoofBlog.com. NBC will televise the race. Exaggerator finished second in the Kentucky Derby before winning the 2016 Preakness, and Irish War Cry was second in last year's Belmont.
