We are just a couple of days away in the 2019 Preakness Stakes. For all those who don’t know, it’s held at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. The actual race is program for 6:18 EST on Saturday, May 18.
Even though the Kentucky Derby is capped at 20 horses, only 14 places are made accessible for the Preakness. We are not likely to get to the limit this year. As of now there are just 12 horses that currently have gambling lines to win the race.There will not be any effort at a Triple Crown this season. Kentucky Derby winner, Country House, has withdrew from the race. In fact, only 4 of the 12 horses who currently have chances ran at Churchill Downs.
Improbable is the best of these four horses, as he came in 4th in the Derby and is now listed as the odds on favorite at 2 to 1.
Just 4 occasions since 1983 includes a horse won the Preakness after skipping the first leg of the Triple Crown. The most recent being in 2017 with Cloud Computing.

Vegas Odds on Favorites to Acquire the 2019 Preakness Stakes
When you factor that the lack of success that horses have experienced who race at Pimlico after not making the field in the Kentucky Derby, it’s easy to see why Improbable is your favorite. He had the best end of the four horses in the field at the Preakness who ran at Churchill Downs.
Improbable came in 4th after closure as the favorite to win the Derby at 4 to 1. Trainer, Bob Baffert, has spoken very highly of his horse moving into Saturday’s race.
War of Will (3/1)
If you don’t think the books are favoring the chances to the horses that ran well at the Derby, all you have to do is look at War of Will. He’s got the second best odds in the field at 3 to 1 and that is after a 7th place finish in the first leg of the Triple Crown.
Interesting to not that War of Will performed exactly as anticipated, as he shut using the 7th best odds to win the race in 16.7 to 1.
Following is a glance at one of the top”brand new” contenders in the field. That would be Maryland’s very own Alwaysmining. Win or lose, many feel as that horse will play a key part in how things unfold on Saturday. Alwaysmining enjoys to set the speed also has the speed to do it. Remember that this is the shortest of the 3 legs in the Triple Crown, so it’s not out of the question he could go wire to wire.
Alwaysmining will not lack any assurance. He’s won all the previous 6 races he’s started.
Bourbon War (7/1)
Bourbon War is right there alongside Alwaysmining concerning chances to win. Both share the next greatest odds in the area at 1. Bourbon War was on the bubble into creating the field in the Kentucky Derby, therefore he must be among the better horses who didn’t run at Churchill Downs.
