The 137th annual Preakness Stakes happens Saturday. Can I'll Have Another pick up a win in the second race of horse racing's Triple Crown?

The second race in horse racing's Triple Crown happens on Saturday. The 2012 Preakness Stakes take place at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Md. Racing fans can watch the race nationally on NBC.

The Preakness is a smaller race than its more famous cousin, the Kentucky Derby. Only 14 horses run in the Preakness versus 20 in the Kentucky Derby.

This year's field of challengers includes some familiar names, including Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another, the winner of three consecutive races looking for its fourth. Bodemeister and Went the Day Well are two other horses with high hopes entering the race.

Union Rags is out following its seventh-place finish at the Kentucky Derby. Also out is Dullahan, the third-place finishing in the Kentucky Derby.
