LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Lookin At Lucky wasn't particularly charmed Wednesday during the post-position draw for the 136th running of the Kentucky Derby. The pre-race favorite drew the rail in the post position in the blind draw, meaning he'll either have to get out early in the 1 1/4 mile race or fight his way through traffic if he's going to win Saturday's Run for the Roses. Churchill Downs oddsmaker Mike Battaglia said the inauspicious No. 1 position didn't significantly affect Lookin At Lucky's odds and that he'll still go off at 3-1, in part because Sidney's Candy, the second choice at 5-1, drew the No. 20 position.

The Triple Crown will have to wait another year. Lookin At Lucky pulled away from the field Saturday to win the 135th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course and ended Super Saver's bid for the first Triple Crown in 32 years. On the final turn, Lookin At Lucky made his move and raced to the finish ahead of First Dude by three-quarters of a length. A jockey change was all it took as Martin Garcia, a 25-year-old from Mexico, replaced Garrett Gomez on Lookin At Lucky and ran a flawless race.

When Martin Garcia decided to become a full-time jockey five years ago — leaving behind steady work as a cook at a Pleasanton, Calif., deli — he did so with little knowledge of horse racing. Garcia never considered he would be standing in the winner's circle at the Preakness, as he did Saturday after riding Lookin at Lucky to victory, because frankly, he'd never heard of the Baltimore-based Triple Crown race. "When I started riding, I didn't know what was Preakness, what was Kentucky, what was any race.

Lookin At Lucky had another tough trip Saturday, but this time the star-crossed Kentucky Derby favorite waited until after he crossed the wire to win the 135th Preakness Stakes before struggling to get into the winner's circle. Moments after jockey Martin Garcia brought the bay colt home in the second jewel of horse racing's Triple Crown series, Lookin At Lucky and his expanded entourage found themselves face to face with a racetrack security contingent that — at least momentarily — wasn't willing to let everyone pass.

Bob Baffert isn't certain whether Lookin At Lucky will run in the 135th Preakness Stakes on Saturday. But he is certain Garrett Gomez won't be the jockey. Looking for a change of luck, the Hall of Fame trainer will put Martin Garcia on Lookin At Lucky if the Kentucky Derby favorite runs at Pimlico, as appears likely. Gomez is one of the nation's elite riders and has been aboard Lookin At Lucky for all nine career starts. But he had a troubled trip in the Santa Anita Derby and finished third.

Calvin Borel isn't particularly comfortable playing the role of braggart. But Borel, even at age 43, is an excitable person, easily swept up by the surging tide that is history. And so minutes after the Kentucky Derby, when NBC shoved a microphone in his face, he boasted that he was going to do it. He was going to win the Triple Crown this year aboard Super Saver. He knows, now that the 135th running of the Preakness at Pimlico Race Course has arrived, that it's a prediction that rubbed some people the wrong way. But it's also the kind of statement there's no sense in retracting.

— Bob Baffert tried to say all the right things during the week. He tried to put on a good face, and pretend that his horse, Lookin At Lucky, had a legitimate chance to win the Kentucky Derby despite drawing the No. 1 post position. But after the race, he admitted he never really believed it. Lookin At Lucky, the co-favorite at the start of the race, never really had much of a chance. He had to fall off the pace early, then try to mount a charge late, and there was simply too much traffic.

It's not often Bob Baffert makes it to the barn when the first number on the clock is a six, much less a five. But there was Baffert at 5:50 a.m. Sunday morning, looking bright-eyed, satisfied and downright elated the day after winning his fifth Preakness with Lookin At Lucky. He was in such a good mood, he said, that he bounced out of bed and wanted to go straight to the barn. He was having so much fun talking to a handful of bleary-eyed reporters, he decided to parody Robert Duvall's famous line from "Apocalypse Now."

Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver arrived at Pimlico Race Course this afternoon and was made the 5-2 favorite for Saturday's 135th Preakness Stakes. Super Saver will start from the 8th post position in the 12-horse field -- two short of the maximum -- in his bid to win the second leg of the Triple Crown. "I don't think the post position matters in this race," Super Saver trainer Todd Pletcher said today. Lookin At Lucky, sixth in the Derby but a pre-race favorite, was the 3-1 second choice and Paddy O'Prado, third in the Derby, was the 9-2 third choice.
