With rain expected in Baltimore through Saturday, the conditions at Pimlico may not be much better.

This year's Preakness features an eight-horse field for the first time since 2015, when American Pharoah won the second leg of the Triple Crown on his path to winning the first Triple Crown since Affirmed did it in 1978.

The 1 3/16th-mile Preakness figures to be a duel between Justify and Derby runner-up Good Magic. And renowned trainer Bob Baffert's latest Triple Crown threat will race from the same post it charged out of to win the Run for the Roses earlier this month at Churchill Downs.

Post positions for the eight-horse race will be drawn at about 5 p.m. American Pharoah was trained by Bob Baffert, who is also the trainer of Justify. In doing so, he's also vying to become the fifth straight Derby victor under trainer Baffert to also win the Preakness, and he'll have to do it from post No. 7, a familiar spot.

Lukas was actually feeling pretty good about both of his horses until he saw Justify get off the van in the barn area a little more than an hour before the draw.

There are straws to be grabbed if you're looking for a reason to doubt Justify and have a good feeling about another horse in the race. "But if for some reason he stubs his toe, we feel real good about Quip's chances to be the horse to upset him, if that happens".

Bravazo was the third longest shot at the Kentucky Derby a few weeks ago, but surprised everyone by placing sixth in that race.

Good Magic, who is 3-1 in the morning line for the Preakness, was the 2-year-old champion with a win in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.

If Justify can win the Preakness and then the Belmont Stakes on June 9 he will become the second horse in four years to take the Triple Crown.

The horse trained by Rodolphe Brisset took the Tampa Bay Stakes in March and finished second behind Kentucky Derby participant Magnum Moon in April's Arkansas Derby.

"I think he's run better here than he did in the Derby", Lukas said.

But if he were to make it six, he had to break the "Curse of Apollo" which dictated that horses who didn't race as a two-year-old can't win at the Derby - no such horse had accomplished the feat since Apollo did in 1882.
