17 May 2018, 01:50 | Sandy Nunez
After winning the Kentucky Derby rather handily from the No. 7 post, Justify will stay in that spot for the Preakness, and he's a big favorite with 1-2 morning-line odds.
After taking home first place at the KENTUCKY DERBY, American thoroughbred Justify is favoured to win the second title on route to a potential Triple Crown season.
Typically, the best post positions tend to be in the middle.
Justify is expected to remain a favorite two weeks after beating Good Magic by 2 1/2 lengths in the Kentucky Derby.
Justify's quest for the Triple Crown continues Saturday at the 143rd running of the Preakness Stakes in Baltimore.

Four new challengers for Justify are in the Preakness field - Diamond King, Quip, Sporting Chance and Tenfold. The stallion takes his shot on Saturday at a third classic victor with Tampa Bay Derby victor Quip, who bypassed the Kentucky Derby to await the Preakness. Justify arrived Wednesday about 90 minutes before the post-position draw, and Baffert expects to take him on the track for the first time Thursday morning.
Before his Kentucky Derby victory, Justify looked dominant in three races, including the Santa Anita Derby.
The race is set to start just after 6 p.m. on NBC.
Trainer Bob Baffert's undefeated colt will leave from the same No. 7 post that he did at the Derby.
