Two weeks ago in the Kentucky Derby it was Animal Kingdom going off at 20-1. He is now given a lot more respect and is the favorite at 2-1. Animal Kingdom will start from post #11 which pleased his trainer Graham Motion who said that starting from that post is a great spot. Just on his inside of Animal Kingdom will be Dialed In who has the #10 post while Mucho Macho Man has post #9.

The Kentucky Derby two weeks ago was run at such a slow pace that many of the closers didn’t have much of a chance. Animal Kingdom didn’t seem to mind though as he was flying late to win.  Nick Zito, who trains Dialed In said that a fast pace should definitely benefit his horse in the Preakness.  He should have to worry about a lack of pace on Saturday as speed horses like Astrology, Flashpoint and Shackleford should be out fast.  They are all starting from the inside so it should be quite a speed duel early. That could set things up for a closer like Dialed In or Animal Kingdom.

There are only three horses on the morning line with single-digit odds as all of the other 11 horses are listed at 12-1 or more. Animal Kingdom looks to be a good horse who has a chance to win against a poor field but if he struggles there are some big prices that could hit the board in the Preakness including Astrology and Midnight Interlude at 15-1 and King Congie at 20-1.
