The 2012 Preakness Stakes will take place on Saturday, May 19 at Pimlico Race Course. Kentucky Derby champion I’ll Have Another is scheduled to start, but he will have to face some old rivals in the Preakness Stakes, including Bodemeister and Went the Day Well.
I’ll Have Another, piloted by Mario Gutierrez, is on everyone’s watch-list since his brilliant Kentucky Derby. His winning performance had him breaking from extreme outside post 19, but a strong start and perfect timing by Gutierrez had him in just the right position to make a run at the pacesetter and catch him late in the race.

Bodemeister was the talk of the Kentucky Derby both before the big race and after – even though he didn’t win. The son of Empire Maker vaulted into the spotlight in his final Derby prep with a stunning 9 ½ length victory. With Mike Smith in the irons, Bodemeister nearly pulled off a history-making run in the Derby with a wire-to-wire effort that just fell short. With his great speed, Bodemeister may be primed to spoil I’ll Have Another’s Triple Crown bid. Make your 2012 Preakness Stakes bet on Bodemeister at Bovada.
Despite a strong performance in his final Derby prep, Went the Day Well was not seen as much of a threat. And his race did not go smoothly; the son of Proud Citizen was bumped near the start and was in 14th position with just a quarter-mile left to run. But with some savvy piloting by John Velazquez and a seven-wide swing entering the stretch, Went the Day Well finished fourth. Get horse racing odds on Went the Day Well at Bovada.
