Mage Draws Post Three as 8-5 Preakness Favorite

GI Kentucky Derby winner Mage (Good Magic) drew post three in the field of eight set to go in the $1.65-million GI Preakness S., to be held Saturday, May 20, at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. The second jewel of the Triple Crown drew only one starter from the Kentucky Derby, but it was the one who won the Derby and the only one with a chance for a Triple Crown.

The entire field, from the rail out, with jockey assignments and early odds is as follows:

#1 National Treasure (Quality Road, John Velazquez, 4-1)

#2 Chase the Chaos (Astern {Aus}, Sheldon Russell, 50-1)

#3 Mage (Good Magic, Javier Castellano, 8-5)

#4 Coffeewithchris (Ride On Curlin, Jaime Rodriguez, 20-1)

#5 Red Route One (Gun Runner, Joel Rosario, 10-1)

#6 Perform (Good Magic, Feargal Lynch, 15-1)

#7 Blazing Sevens (Good Magic, Irad Ortiz, Jr., 6-1)

#8 First Mission (Street Sense, Luis Saez, 5-2)
