Preakness 2017 odds, post positions: Always Dreaming the favorite, Classic Empire close
Trainer Todd Pletcher will continue his pursuit of the elusive Triple Crown on Saturday in Baltimore
Always Dreaming is ready to run for history. The winner of the 2017 Kentucky Derby has made the trip to Pimlico Race Course for the 142nd Preakness Stakes. Always Dreaming's trainer, Todd Pletcher, has never won at the Maryland track in the second leg of the Triple Crown. In his way will be a host of contenders from the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago including Classic Empire, Gunnevera, Hence and Lookin at Lee. Always Dreaming has won the past four races he has run.
But Always Dreaming will also get tough competition from the likes of a newcomer in Conquest Mo Money, whose owner paid to get him in the race. He'll break from the starting gate on the outside at post 10.
Here's how the field looks with the early odds from Bovada.
