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

The 2012 Preakness will be the 137th running of the historic race, and there appears to be a very strong field in the running for the second leg of the Triple Crown. For I'll Have Another, who won the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, it's all about continuing his quest for the Triple Crown title, something that has not been won since 1978 by Affirmed.

For Bodemeister, who was the favorite in the Kentucky Derby and the favorite this weekend, it's about revenge and finishing on top. And for the rest of the field, nothing more pleases onlookers more than a great underdog story.

Here is a complete look at the 2012 Preakness, the schedule for the race, and more:
