Betting Trends for the Preakness Stakes

May 12, 2017

The Preakness Stakes held at Pimlico Park is approaching quickly with Always Dreaming the winner of the Kentucky Derby hoping to keep alive his hopes of winning the Triple Crown.

Trained by Todd Pletcher, Always Dreaming is 10-11 to win the second leg of the Triple Crown after winning the Kentucky Derby by nearly 3 lengths with John Velazquez a Hall of Fame jockey in the irons.

Pletcher has not won a Preakness and Always Dreaming is looking to become the third horse over the past four years to win the Derby and Preakness.

Looking for betting facts and trends for the Preakness? Look no further.
