2008 Preakness Post Positions

Updated May 18, 2008


A field of 13 was entered for the 133rd Preakness on Wednesday with post positions drawn that evening at the ESPNzone in Baltimore. Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown is a prohibitive morning line favorite at odds of 1-2 and will break from the 7 hole. The next closest are Gayego at 8-1 and Behindatthebar at 10-1.

Big Brown's co-owner Michael Iavarone said, "I think if he gets a clean trip, I don't know of anybody who can run with him. I wouldn't say we're on the inside. I think we've drawn in the right spot. I wouldn't want to have drawn on the inside in the 1, 2 or 3. In Post 20, he was kind of forced into a position where he had to stalk horses. Now drawing post 7, if nobody wants to go with him he can bounce out of there and take the race on his own on the lead. It gives Kent (Desormeaux, jockey) a lot more options. Rick (Dutrow, trainer) is elated with the 7. He really thought we'd get post 13 somehow."
