The 137th running of the Preakness Stakes will be broadcast on Saturday at 4:30 EDT on NBC, however, for those without access to a television set, you can still watch the live 2012 Preakness stream online.
An only-only isolation camera will be focused on the 2012 Kentucky Derby winner, I’ll Have Another. For those looking for an isolation camera on the favorite, Bodemeister, it appears as if you’re out of luck at this year’s Preakness 2012.

I’ll Have Another pulled off an improbable win earlier in the season in the first leg of the Triple Crown at Churchill Downs with 15-1 odds. During the Kentucky Derby, Bodemeister took off fast from the gates, but ran out of steam as the race came to an end.
Police in Baltimore have indicated that up to 50,000 individuals showed up at Pimlico for the 2012 Preakness Stakes. The police department expects roughly 112,000 people to show up at the event by the time the big race has been run. Last year’s attendance was reported to have been around 107,398, making it the sixth largest. A decline in attendance in previous years has been attributed to the elimination of the B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Beer) drinking policy.
Regardless of the elimination of the B.Y.O.B. policy, beer at the event appears plentiful as race organizers are offering all-you-can drink draft beer. While the lines might be long, the spirits are certainly flowing.
Who do you think is going to win the 2012 Preakness?
