Preakness Winner Poll - vote for who you think will win
 Preakness Post 

Dateline: 05/16/01

Post positions were drawn this afternoon for the 126th Preakness and a field of 11 horses was entered. Only five horses who ran in the Kentucky Derby are trying the Preakness with several opting to skip it and go straight to the Belmont or other races instead. As expected, Derby winner Monarchos is back to try and take the second jewel of the Triple Crown and he will break from post 7. Beaten Derby favorite Point Given is again on the outside in post 11. Morning line favorite is Monarchos at 2-1 narrowly over Congaree at 5-2 and Point Given at 3-1.

Past performances are available for free online from the Daily Racing Form here in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Post time for the Preakness is 6:04pm EDT and between ESPN, ESPN2, and NBC there will be TV coverage nearly all day long (schedule).
