Pimlico Special Odds 2012: Mission Impazible Is The Favorite

While most of the attention is on Saturday's Preakness Stakes, Friday's card at the Pimlico Race Course has a couple of noteworthy races as well, including the Pimlico Special. The Grade 3 race has a purse of $300,000.

Mission Impazible is the favorite in the nine-horse field with 7-2 odds. Hymn Book and Alternation are just behind Mission Impazible, both staked at 4-1. Alternation has won seven of 12 career races including all three of his races in 2012. Mission Impazible has finishied second in both of his 2012 races while Hymn Book has one first place finish in two races this year. The field was initially set at 10 horses, but Cease was an early scratch.

This will be the 48th running of the Pimlico Special, but the first since 2008.
