Dance City odds to win the 2011 Preakness Stakes were listed at 8/1 or +800

What makes Dance City so special besides the post position edge is that he is a Todd Pletcher horse that continues to improve with each race that he wins (despite the relatively limited number ran). 

Pletcher feels confident that Dance City can step it up at this weekend’s Preakness.

"It seems like he's coming up to the race well," he said. 

Pletcher insisted his horse is not a “third-stringer” as some have speculated.

"I'd say he could step up to first string in a hurry on Saturday," he said. "At least that's what we're hoping for."

"He seems to be physically all about his mother's side," said Pletcher, referring to Dance City’s lineage. "He's a big, scopey, leggy horse that if you didn't look at the paper you wouldn't know he's by City Zip. He's got tactical speed, but he's a horse that's made to run two turns."
