Post positions are set for the 142nd running of the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore on Saturday night. Just 10 horses make up the field with only two owning strong odds to win the second leg of the Triple Crown.

The big headliner remains Always Dreaming, as the Kentucky Derby winner trained by Todd Pletcher is a 4/5 favorite. "The tank seems full and he seems eager to go," Pletcher said of Always Dreaming this week.

Pletcher is looking to end his Pimlico drought. The famed trainer has failed to win the Preakness in eight attempts, with his best finish coming in 2000 when Impeachment finished third.

Recent history supports Always Dreaming's chances. In the last five years, the Kentucky Derby winner has gone on to win the Preakness three times, with I'll Have Another (2012), California Chrome (2014) and American Pharoah (2015).

Classic Empire, who will be in the No. 5 post and next to Always Dreaming in the No. 4 post, enters the weekend with the second-best odds at 3/1. Trainer Mark Casse remains optimistic about his Classic Empire's chances despite Classic Empire suffering a swollen right eye after the race at Churchill Downs. Casse claims Classic Empire is "fired up and ready."

“He’s full of energy, and the plan is to run, because we think he’s the best horse and we want to prove it,” Casse said. “And we sure didn’t change our minds because of the results of the Derby.”

There is a sharp decline in odds after the co-favorites, and should either Always Dreaming or Classic Empire finish in the top two, it would mostly be consistent with recent history. The two top favorites have finished first or second in 14 of the last 16 Preakness races.

But longshots have had a good chance of finishing second. Looking at Lee (10/1), Cloud Computing (14/1) and Gunnevera (16/1) round out the thoroughbreds with the best Preakness odds.

The weather forecast for Baltimore calls for sunny temperatures in the low 70s. The Kentucky Derby was run on a sloppy track.

The $1.5 million Preakness is the shortest of the three Triple Crown races at 1-3/16 miles. Five horses that raced at the Derby will compete in the Preakness.
