Preakness Stakes 2012: Post Time, TV Schedule, Video And More

The 2012 Preakness is here and the Pimlico infield will start to fill up early for a full day of racing. The Preakness Stakes will be the 12th race of the day, with 11 horses set to race in the 137th running. There was a bit of drama just one day before the race, with Kent Desormeaux losing his mount aboard Tiger Walk for failing a breathalyzer test at Belmont Park before he was scheduled to ride there. The Maryland-based horse, owned by Under Armour's Kevin Plank, quickly received word of the incident and replaced Desormeaux with Ramon Dominguez.

Tiger Walk will be in the first position when the Preakness runs at the post time of 6:18 p.m. ET. Below the complete post positions and latest odds:

1- Tiger Walk 33/1
2 - Teeth of the Dog 15/1
3 - Pretension 33/1
4 - Zetterholm 22/1
5 - Went the Day Well 6/1
6 - Creative Cause 7/1
7 - Bodemeister 7/4
8 - Daddy Nose Best 14/1
9 - I'll Have Another 5/2

NBC Sports Network will start their coverage of race day at 2:30 p.m. ET and carry coverage up until 4:30 p.m. ET. The mothership at NBC will then take over, carrying the broadcast until 6:30 p.m.
