Winning Pick: Bodemeister
Installed as the Kentucky Derby favorite, this horse shot out to an early lead at Churchill, but coming down the stretch couldn’t hold off a late surge by “I’ll have another” to place second at the Derby. We see the shorter track at Pimlico being a substantial advantage for Bodemeister and select him as our winning horse.
Exacta Pick: Bodemeister / I’ll Have Another
As a favorite along Bodemeister we see the Derby Winner, “I’ll Have Another”, winner of three straight races, having another late surge at this year’s Preakness, to just come up short of winning the second leg of the Triple Crown.
Trifecta Pick: Bodemeister/ I’ll Have Another / Went the Day Well
This horse had a poor start in his Derby showing, but strongly moved his way up to fourth place, finishing just a couple lengths off of “I’ll have Another”. Providing we get off to a strong start at Pimlico, “Went the Day Well” will be in contention down the stretch.
Longshot Pick: Daddy Nose Best
We will back this horse as our longshot pick at the 2012 Preakness Stakes, which has four wins and seven top three finishes in his career. We see excellent value with “Daddy Nose Best” to play in your Trifectas and Superfectas.
