It's the morning before the Second Jewel of the Triple Crown and there is buzz about whether the betting odds favorite Justify has an injury to his hind quarter that could derail his hopes for a win at the 143rd running of the Preakness. Justify looked good in the training runs but he has a patch on his injury that could get infected if not watched carefully. Justify drew the post 7 position which is the same position he won the Kentucky Derby from. Justify's Preakness moneyline the morning before is listed 4/9.
Good Magic is a top contender with Jockey Jose Ortiz who will leave from the post position #5 jumped a bit in the betting odds to 3/1 and could be the favorite if Justify can't endure the muddy track that is predicted for race day. Sporting Chance with Jockey Luis contreras from the 3 post position has also jumped in the odds to 33/1.
Jockey Florent Geroux mounted on Quip who is in the 1st post position remains at 14/1. Lone Sailor with Jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. remains at 20/1 and will be starting from gate 2. Diamond King with last years Preakness winning Jockey Javier Castellano will leave from gate 4 with a moneyline of 20/1. Bravazo under Jockey Luis Saez will start from the 8th post position and has a morning moneyline of 18/1. Finally, gate 6 will hold Tenfold mounted by Jockey Ricardo Santana Jr. and remains at 33/1.
The 2018 running of the Preakness Stakes will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018 with a post time of 6:20 p.m. ET with the smallest field of horses since 2000. Who is your betting odds favorite?
