UPDATE: The draw for the Preakness is done and none of the top contenders got anything in the way of an awful draw (if there was one to be had). The connections of Astrology and Mr. Commons probably don't care for their positions, and Flashpoint seems to be in a spot the will require him to gun it from the word "go", but the main players ended up in good spots. Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom, along with Mucho Macho Man, Shackleford and Dialed In are in good spots.
ORIGINAL POST: The post positions for Saturday's Grade 1 Preakness Stakes will be drawn at Pimlico Race Course this afternoon at around 5pm Eastern/2pm Pacific time. The draw will be carried live on HRTV. If you don't have HRTV, you can follow the draw along live with this post as I was granted a day of reprieve from jury duty.
