Current 2011 Preakness Odds Still Slightly Favor Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom was installed as the morning line favorite for the 2011 Preakness Stakes and early betting hasn't changed his status. Listed at 2/1 when the first official set of odds were released, Animal Kingdom still sits at 2/1 as race day at Pimlico begins, with Dialed In close-behind at 4/1. Mucho Macho Man has also been slightly bet down and sits at 9/2 for the 2011 Preakness. All three horses will enter the gates side-by-side in the No. 9 through No. 11 post positions on Saturday afternoon.

All three favorites ran in the Kentucky Derby, though Dialed In didn't live-up to the early expectations, leaving the gates as the favorite and finishing the race in a disappointing eighth place. It's clear bookmakers still have faith in Dialed In as he's been given the second-best odds to win the Preakness on Saturday.

The newcomers also make an appearance, with Sway Away, who just missed making the 2011 Kentucky Derby field, at 10/1 and Dance City at 15/1. Sandwiched in between is Derby pace-setter Shackleford at 12/1
