BigTrends 2012 Preakness Picks

Just wanted to pass along a quick note about Saturday's 137th running of the Preakness Stakes in Maryland. This second leg of the Triple Crown is a shorter, more speed-oriented race than the Kentucky Derby. It also has a small field this year, and the favorites look more likely to dominate the top places.

In our 2012 Kentucky Derby article, we did pretty well in our handicapping analysis. I had Bodemeister and I'll Have Another both in my top three, and they finished second and first, respectively. I also had Dullahan as one of two wildcards, and he finished third. My top pick, Creative Cause, finished fifth, just out of the money spots.

Also, Moby Waller in the same article had Dullahan and I'll Have Another in his top four, as well as longshot Went The Day Well in his wildcards, who finished fourth (fourth-place finish is part of Superfecta betting).

For the Preakness, I view it as a likely three-horse race, not a lot of upsets here. I have:

I'll Have Another (#9, 5-2)
on top over
Bodemeister (#7, 8-5)
Creative Cause (#6, 6-1) as the wildcard to finish anywhere in top three.

My hypothetical wagers, for entertainment purposes only of course:

$20 Win � I'll Have Another (#9)
$20 Win � Creative Cause (#6)
$10 Exacta Box � I'll Have Another, Bodemeister, Creative Cause (#9, #7, #6)

Have a great weekend!
