Pimlico Special 2012: Post Time, Entries, Results And More

The Pimlico Special, a longtime tradition of the Preakness Stakes weekend that had fallen on hard times in recent years — it has been run just once since 2007 — rejoins the schedule leading up to the 2012 Preakness.

Nine horses, a field that And Down The Stretch They Come calls "really good," will hit the track at Pimlico Park in the Special on Friday, led by Mission Impazible, a 7-2 favorite. Alternation is just behind Mission Impazible at 4-1, and Hymn Book, the third of the three top horses in the race, is at 9-2.

The horses will go from 10 post positions, not nine, thanks to the scratching of Cease.

Post time for the 2012 Pimlico Special is 5:51 p.m. Eastern on Friday, May 17. It will be televised on HRTV. Here is the full list of Pimlico Special entries and post positions via And Down The Stretch They Come.
