I'll Have Another wasn't the favorite to win Saturday's Preakness, but he was pretty close. The horse was facing 3-1 odds prior to the race, while Bodemeister was looking at 2-1, contributing to a bit smaller payouts following the second leg of the Triple Crown at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. A lot of the larger payouts, though, came following the superfecta, pegging the top four finishers correctly.
I'll Have Another had been trailing before passing Bodemeister over the final stretch.
Here are the payouts from today's race for win, along with the place and show.
I'll Have Another: $8.40 $3.80 $2.80
Bodemeister: $3.20 $2.80
Creative Cause: $3.60
