 BALTIMORE (AP) -- Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome has been made the heavy 3-5 favorite for the Preakness Stakes, and he drew a favorable post position in the 10-horse field.

Trained by Art Sherman and ridden by Victor Espinoza, California Chrome will break from the No. 3 post, which has produced 10 winners in the previous 138 runnings of the 1 3/16-mile race.

Social Inclusion was the 5-1 second choice of new Pimlico oddsmaker Keith Feustle. The colt drew the No. 8 post on Wednesday.

Bayern and Ride On Curlin are the co-third choices at 10-1. Bayern is trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, who will be seeking a sixth Preakness win. Ride On Curlin finished seventh in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago.
