2011 Preakness Stakes: Animal Kingdom 2-1 Favorite

Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom remains a 2-1 betting line favorite to win Saturday's Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course. A victory by Animal Kingdom would set up the possibility of the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978, and would be great for next month's Belmont Stakes.

Here are the current odds by post position:

  1. Astrology, 15-1
  2. Norman Asbjornson, 30-1
  3. King Congie, 20-1
  4. Flashpoint, 15-1
  5. Shackleford, 10-1
  6. Sway Away, 15-1
  7. Midnight Interlude, 15-1
  8. Dance City, 12-1
  9. Mucho Macho Man, 6-1
  10. Dialed In, 5-1
  11. Animal Kingdom, 2-1
  12. Isn't He Perfect, 60-1
  13. Concealed  Identity, 20-1
  14. Mr. Commons, 20-1
