Preakness Post Positions

The post positions and morning-line odds for the Preakness Stakes this Saturday

1. Big Drama 10-1
2. Mine That Bird 6-1
3. Musket Man 8-1
4. Luv Gov 50-1
5. Friesan Fire 6-1
6. Terrain 30-1
7. Papa Clem 12-1
8. General Quarters 20-1
9. Pioneerof the Nile 5-1
10. Flying Private 50-1
11. Take the Points 30-1
12. Tone it Down 50-1
13. Rachel Alexandra 8-5*


Now I just have to keep repeating to myself "don't be superstitious, don't be superstitious," and ignore the fact that I Want Revenge also drew post 13 before he was scratched for the Derby.

Actually, I think the 13 hole is good for Rachel, in that she won't be pinched by any of the boys and will be able to accelerate without traffic problems in the start.

I hope Jess Jackson has a 'round-the-clock security guard glued to that filly until this race is over.


  1. Around the-clock security guard for Rachel?
    Well, she is a First Lady of the Derby in a
    while, if she wins, President O'bama should
    consider flying her home in Air-Force-One.

  2. I'm all for that. If Mine That Bird can get a police escort to the Preakness, Rachel deserves a parade and security staff wherever her queenly hoofs decide to venture next!
