Still, the post draw makes each horse's starting position official, and the morning line odds provide a starting point for any bettors preparing their trifectas for Saturday.

The second of the Triple Crown's three legs is scheduled for a 6:20 p.m. ET post time.

Justify became this year's candidate to become thoroughbred racing's 13 Triple Crown victor by capturing the Kentucky Derby by 2.5 lengths over Good Magic on May 5.

Good Magic is back to challenge Justify again, along with Bravazo and Lone Sailor, which finished sixth and eighth in the Kentucky Derby, respectively.

After another dominant performance at the Kentucky Derby, Justify will enter the race as the odds-on favorite, hoping for another victory on his way to a potential Triple Crown.

The most recent horse to start from Post 7 and win the Preakness was Lookin at Lucky in 2010.

With the 143rd running of the Preakness Stakes taking place on Saturday, May 19, the post-position draw for the race will commence on Wednesday.

Last year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor had a solid showing in the Kentucky Derby (second) and this son of Curlin appears well suited for the 1 3/16-mile Preakness distance.

Mark Inabinett from AL.com has a good look at all eight horses in the 2018 Preakness Stakes field and offers a chance to watch them all run.
