Fourteen horses are officially entered to compete in this latest thoroughbred horse racing event. It’s no surprise that the 2011 winner of the Kentucky Derby, Animal Kingdom, is the favorite in Baltimore. Animal Kingdom is 2 to 1 odds to win at Preakness, which would make the thoroughbred two-thirds of the way towards achieving a historic Triple Crown.
