September 25, 2020
Preakness Stakes

The Pimlico Park in Maryland is now shaping up to make way for the 145th Preakness Stakes running. Remember that the Preakness this year is concluding the U.S. Triple Crown Series, following the Derby. Although there is no Triple Crown winner to be expected, the Preakness offers a million-dollar prize at stake, so horses need to work hard to win.

In the next few weeks, horse racing fans can expect thirteen of the mightiest colts to saddle up at Pimlico Park. Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes winners are indeed running for the Black-Eyed Susans. Besides that, there are also new entrants who didn’t join the first two racing legs.

While the Stronach Group, owner of Preakness Stakes, decided that there are no fans allowed to spectate the show, the betting games are still working online. Now that there’s still a few more days before the tournament takes place, let’s get to know the current Preakness Stakes current odds ranking of the favorite horses competing in the said show.
