139th Preakness Stakes Contenders — General A Rod

Preakness Field 2014: Pinpointing Underrated Horses and Jockeys in Lineup

On Saturday the 2014 Preakness Stakes takes center stage on the sports world. There are only going to be 10 horses in this year's event and one of the Preakness Stakes Contenders this year is General A Rod. Currently the race has General A Rod Odds listed at 15-1 to win the second leg of the Triple Crown.

One of just 10 horses to be entered into this year's Preakness Stakes, General A Rod will begin the race from the second post position.

General A Rod finished 11th in the Kentucky Derby with Joel Rosario riding the horse. It's not being tabbed as the horse to beat in this race, but General A Rod is drawing some pretty solid odds. A total of 10 horses make the gate for the second race in the Triple Crown run.  

General A Rod placed third in the Florida Derby, which was the only time he finished worst than second place in a race. Experts have likened General A Rod to many other horses in this race when it comes to running ability. The 1 1/4 mile length could prove to be a problem for many horses in the race, but a horse like this, which has had success, might be a pretty solid option in drawing 15-1 odds in a 20-horse race. 

This year Javier Castellano will saddle up on General A Rod.
