Bet on the Preakness?
Post No. 7 worked out quite well for Justify at the Kentucky Derby. He’ll break from the same post at Saturday’s Preakness Stakes (6:20 PM ET post time on NBC), and it doesn’t look like he’ll get much competition as the 1/2 favorite on the Morning Line. Good Magic will break from the 5-hole as the 3/1 second favorite in this eight-horse race; Quip, who skipped the Kentucky Derby after finishing second at the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby, is next on the inside rail at 12/1.

Justify arrived at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore on Wednesday with trainer Bob Baffert, about 90 minutes before the post position draw. Baffert led the chestnut colt to Stall 28, avoiding the potential media circus around Stall 40, the usual destination for Kentucky Derby winners. Quip and Lone Sailor (15/2, post No. 2) arrived on the same flight.
Baffert is 4-0 at the Preakness when bringing in Derby winners – including American Pharoah, who claimed the Triple Crown in 2015. At press time, Justify is available at 6/4 on the horse racing props market to complete the Triple Crown by winning both the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 9.
