Kentucky Derby victor Justify drew the seventh post on Wednesday for Saturday's Preakness Stakes in Baltimore where he will seek the second jewel of US thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown.
Justify, the victor of the 144th Kentucky Derby, is headed to Pimlico to get ready to run for a chance at the triple crown.
Justify and Good Magic are the two big-name horses in the field for the Preakness Stakes, but there's another worth keeping an eye on as Saturday's race inches closer.
The race for the Triple Crown is back on this weekend as the fastest horses in the world make their way to Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland for the 143rd running of the Preakness Stakes.
Good Magic was second in the morning line at 3-1, and Quip got the shortest odds of the new shooters at 12-1.

As in the Derby, rain is forecast for the Baltimore area on Saturday.
The most recent horse to start from Post 7 and win the Preakness was Lookin at Lucky in 2010. Justify also broke from the seventh gate in his Kentucky Derby victory. 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. NBC will televise the race.
