How to watch the Preakness post position draw

How to watch the Preakness post position draw

After winning the Kentucky Derby rather handily from the No. 7 post, Justify will stay in that spot for the Preakness, and he's a big favorite with 1-2 morning-line odds.

Justify comes off an impressive Kentucky Derby victory and enters the 2018 Preakness Stakes as a prohibitive favorite in a much smaller field expected to go off with eight horses.

The Pimlico Race Course track handicapper set the morning-line odds on Justify emerging from Saturday's race undefeated and headed to the Belmont Stakes with the Triple Crown at stake at 1-2.

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.

Low extends Germany deal, Gotze axed
Low's backroom team of Thomas Schneider, Andreas Kopke, Oliver Bierhoff and Marcus Sorg have also all extended their contracts. Club-mate Marco Reus and Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer have been included, however.

There's no guarantee Quip can beat the two favorites, but he could challenge them at the start of the race, which could end up throwing a wrench in the race plans of Justify and Good Magic. 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. The horse was "closing well" at both the Kentucky Derby and Louisiana Derby, Goldberg said, and could hit the board at the Preakness.

The Preakness is one-half furlong shorter than the 10-furlong (or 1.25-mile) Kentucky Derby.
