Preakness Odds 2012: Bodemeister, I'll Have Another Still Favorites

On Saturday, the 2012 Preakness Stakes will take place at Pimlico. The race is the second leg of the annual Triple Crown, one of the most prestigious and elusive titles in all of sports. Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another is a bit unlikely to be the first horse in over thirty years to take home the Triple Crown, but will try to win the Preakness and roll into the Belmont Stakes with two of the three victories under his belt.

Also running in the Preakness is Bodemeister, who was the odds-on favorite to win the Kentucky Derby and was only overtaken by I'll Have Another in the home stretch two weeks ago.

Here are the early odds for the Preakness, courtesy of Doc's Sports:

Post Position - Horse - Morning Line
1 - Tiger Walk - 30/1
2 - Teeth of the Dog - 15/1
3 - Pretension - 30/1
4 - Zetterholm - 20/1
5 - Went The Day Well- 6/1
6 - Creative Cause - 6/1
7 - Bodemeister - 8/5
8 - Daddy Nose Best - 12/1
9 - I'll Have Another- 5/2
10 - Optimizer - 30/1
11 - Cozzetti - 30/1
