  • Bodemeister still the favorite at Pimlico

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Just like in the Kentucky Derby, Bodemeister is the favorite in the Preakness.
    This time, Bob Baffert intends to justify the odds.
    Despite finishing second in the Derby, Bodemeister was installed as the 8-5 favorite for Saturday’s second leg of the Triple Crown. The colt, trained by Baffert, set the pace at Churchill Downs before being overtaken in the stretch by I’ll Have Another, who won by 1½ lengths.
    I’ll Have Another is the second-favorite in the Preakness at 5-2.
    Baffert, a five-time Preakness winner, was delighted to receive the No. 7 post in the 11-horse field.
