Preakness Stakes lineup, updated odds and picks: Everything you need to know

Post Time: Saturday, 6:20 p.m.

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.

Typically, the best post positions tend to be in the middle. Bravazo finished 8 lengths behind, with Lone Sailor 9 1/4 lengths out. Good Magic, the Derby runner-up who is trained by Chad Brown, drew Post 5 and was made the second choice at 3-1.

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.

Tenfold ran fifth in the Arkansas Derby in just his third career start yet you have to respect Asmussen, a Hall of Fame trainer who has two Preakness wins: Curlin (2007) and Rachel Alexandra (2009).

Kentucky Derby victor Justify will run from the seventh post at the Preakness Stakes on Saturday. The horse was "closing well" at both the Kentucky Derby and Louisiana Derby, Goldberg said, and could hit the board at the Preakness. A furlong is one-eighth of a mile, so the Preakness is 110 yards shorter than the Kentucky Derby.
