Kentucky Derby #1 vs #2 in Preakness Showdown

The 2012 Preakness just got a little more interesting as Bob Baffert has announced that Kentucky Derby runner-up Bodemeister will race in the Preakness this Saturday in Baltimore, Maryland.

Bodemeister started out at a blistering pace, nearly going wire to wire, until 15-1 shot I’ll Have Another caught him down the stretch.

At first his trainers weren’t sure if Bodemeister would recover in time for the Preakness but it appears he is doing well.

His appearance in Baltimore creates a great story line for the middle leg of the Triple Crown.

Get Your Preak On… because it’s #1 vs #2 in the Preakness.
