    I don't know when the last time the Kentucky Derby winner ran in the Preakness and didn't go off as the favorite, but that could be the case on Saturday. Bodemeister, second in the Derby, is the morning-line favorite of 11 entered in the Preakness. It'll be interesting to see what the bettors do.

    1 Tiger Walk (K. Desormeaux) 30-1
    2 Teeth of the Dog (J. Bravo) 15-1
    3 Pretension (J. Santiago) 30-1
    4 Zetterholm (J. Alvarado) 20-1
    5 Went The Day Well (J. Velazquez) 6-1
    6 Creative Cause (J. Rosario) 6-1
    7 Bodemeister (M. Smith) 8-5
    8 Daddy Nose Best (J. Leparoux) 12-1
    9 I’ll Have Another (M. Gutierrez) 5-2
    10 Optimizer (C. Nakatani) 30-1
    11 Cozzetti (J. Lezcano) 30-1

    Anyone got recipes for leftover bourbon?

    The recipe for the classic Preakness cocktail involves taking a firm grip on the pop-top and pulling or tapping the keg. Few celebrities or titled heads will be in attendance at Pimlico.

    That's nice, but I've got a nearly full bottle of Evan Williams in a house where two shots a month is a big deal.

    And this race has Bodemeister written all over it. Not sure there's a challenger in the field.

    1 ice cube
    1 highball glass (or red solo cup)

    pour leftover bourbon. Enjoy.

    Bodemeister ran his butt off in the Derby. Can he hold it together this time? Not sure he can, but it'll be interesting to see him try.
  8. I've said the same thing ever since the minute the Derby was over. But Mike Smith really pushed him in the Derby, and coming back two weeks later is tough. He'll be the favorite the whole way, but I think it's clearly a two-horse race for the win. This is a relatively weak field outside of Bode and IHA.

    Make sure Went The Day Well is in your exotics.

    If Creative Cause is anywhere NEAR 8-1, that's me.
