Justify will enter the race as the betting favorite, looking to remain undefeated and win the second leg of the Triple Crown after his dominant performance at the Kentucky Derby.

Will be updated.Kentucky Derby victor Justify has arrived at Pimlico Race Course, full of energy in advance of Saturday's Preakness.

He was due to hold talks later in Brussels with the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany . President Donald Trump withdrew from last week.

WBAL NewsRadio 1090's Preakness coverage comes from Pimlico Race Course starting at 7 a.m. Saturday. Justify arrived Wednesday about 90 minutes before the post-position draw, and Baffert expects to take him on the track for the first time Thursday morning. 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.

Baffert joked that being such a heavy favorite puts more pressure on Justify, who held off a hard-charging Good Magic in the Derby. He'll be joined by fellow Derby horses such as Good Magic and Lone Sailor, but will also be facing off against a few fresh horses that made a decision to skip the Derby in favor of preparing for the Preakness Stakes, including Diamond King and Quip.

No. 5 Good Magic is the second choice at 3-1, and No. 1 Quip is third at 12-1. 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.
