Team Valor International's Kentucky Derby hero Animal Kingdom
will break from post eleven and has been installed as the 2-1 morning line favorite in Saturday's 136th running of the Preakness Stakes.
The Graham Motion trainee will remain at Fair Hill Training Center before heading to Pimlico Race Course on Saturday morning.
Beaten Kentucky Derby favorite Dialed In
is the 9-2 second choice for Nick Zito. A win in Baltimore would make him eligible to earn Frank Stronach's $5.5 million bonus for winning the Holy Bull Stakes and Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park, along with the Preakness. Mucho Macho Man
, show finisher in the Derby, is next at 6-1. He will break from post nine under Rajiv Maragh.
Santa Anita Derby winner Midnight Interlude
, a disappointing 16th on the first Saturday in May, will leave from lucky number seven. Last year's Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky won from post seven for Bob Baffert and Martin Garcia. Baffert also captured the Preakness from post seven with Silver Charm.
