The 137th running of the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Raceway in Baltimore, Md., is just hours away from determining if I'll Have Another can also win the second leg of the Triple Crown. After defeating Bodemeister in the Kentucky Derby, I'll Have Another is not the favorite to win this race, holding 5-2 odds. Bodemeister enters the race with the best odds at 8-5.
Should I'll Have Another win the Preakness, then the Belmont Stakes in June awaits a possible Triple Crown winner, the first since Affirmed did it in 1978. Will we be two-thirds of the way to it on Saturday evening?
