Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist has officially taken the No. 3 post position for Saturday's 141st Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course.

That's exactly what trainer Doug O'Neill wanted, as he hopes Nyquist will run to victory under jockey Mario Gutierrez. Nyquist faces 10 other horses in the race.
