Horse racing fans had better be ready to get their preak on, as the 2012 Preakness is set to be held on Saturday, May 19. The major storyline of course is I'll Have Another, as he looks to win the second leg of the Triple Crown, after emerging from the outside of the pack to win the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago.

The post positions, which were drawn on Wednesday night, are as follows:

  1. Tiger Walk
  2. Teeth of the Dog
  3. Pretension
  4. Zetterholm
  5. Went The Day Well
  6. Creative Cause
  7. Bodemeister
  8. Daddy Nose Best
  9. I'll Have Another
  10. Optimizer
  11. Cozzetti
Bodemeister remains the favorite, and still holds the 8/5 odds that he was given on Thursday morning.

Horse racing fans will be able to catch coverage of the 2012 Preakness coverage beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Post time is scheduled for 6:17 p.m. ET, so if you're planning on catching the race live, you'd better be by a television set by 6:15.
