2012 Kentucky Derby: I'll Have Another Prepares For The Preakness

As soon as I'll Have Another crossed the finish line to win the 138th Kentucky Derby, people began to look ahead to the Preakness Stakes.

Just a day later, we may have an idea of the competition I'll Have Another will face as it tries to win the second leg of a possible Triple Crown. A lot can change between now and the May 19 race, but the Chicago Tribune has the initial list of possible entrants into the Preakness.

The list includes Kentucky Derby second-place finisher Bodemeister as well as Went the Day Well, who finished fourth in the derby. Other possible entrants include Creative Cause, Liason, Hansen and Optimizer. Union Rags, one of the pre-race favorites in the Kentucky Derby, is not likely to race in the Preakness.
