American Pharaoh Heavy Favorite For Preakness
American Pharoah will try to win another leg of racing's Triple Crown when The Preakness race goes off in Baltimore Saturday afternoon. Bob Baffert's horse won the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago and his the heavy favorite to win The Preakness.
But Victor Espinoza will ride American Pharoah from the #1 hole which is not the best spot to start the race. Dating back to last year, the horse has a five race winning streak.
It's just an 8-horse field - the smallest since 2000.
NOTE: You can hear live coverage of The Preakness beginning at 5pm on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
