BALTIMORE - Officials Wednesday announced the post positions for the 139th Preakness Stakes with Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome in the No. 3 spot.
1) Dynamic Impact
2) General A Rod
3) California Chrome
4) Ring Weekend
6) Rita Antonia
7) Kid Cruz
8) Social Inclusion
9) Pablo Del Monte
10) Ride On Curlin
Steve and Carolyn Coburn co-own California Chrome with Perry and Denise Martin. The Coburns say they are happy with that position.
"I was really good with it. We just didn't want him to come out of the one or two hole but he's got enough speed to get him out and settle him down and he won't be stuck on the ground so we're really pleased with it," Carolyn Coburn told ABC2.
Responding to the 3 to 5 odds in favor of California Chrome capturing the middle jewel of the triple crown, Steve Coburn said "We knew we were going to be the favorite winning the Kentucky Derby ... It is what it is."
The 139th running of the Preakness Stakes is scheduled for 6:18 p.m. on Saturday May 17, 2014.
