2023 Preakness Post Positions, Jockeys and Trainers
The eight-horse field is much smaller than the nearly 20-horse field we saw run at the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, but that isn't exactly a new trend.
While the No. 5 spot is the only pole position to produce double-digit winners (10) at the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness has eight spots (1-8) that have produced at least 10 winners. The pole position that has produced the most winners in Preakness history is the No. 6 spot with 16 total winners. After that, the No. 4 and No. 7 spots are tied with 14 winners, followed by the No. 5 spot with 13 winners.
While the No. 6 spot has produced the most winners, it's been a decade since Oxbow in 2013 was the last horse to win it out of the No. 6 post position.
Here's each horse listed by post position along with their early odds to win the race, trainers and jockeys.
