Preakness Stakes Betting Tips – Top Contenders
Kentucky Derby favorite Dialed In has a morning line of 9/2 for the Preakness. Dialed In had a horrible trip in Kentucky as he couldn’t recover from a last place start, or the slow pace, and finished eighth in the Derby. We expect a much faster pace in the Preakness and much better trip for Dialed In today.
With a 2 3/4 length win during the run for the roses, Animal Kingdom continues on his Triple Crown quest. His value drops from 20/1 in the Derby to favorite at 2/1 in the Preakness. After watching this powerful horse swallow up the field, down the stretch in Kentucky, he has to be considered here.
Mucho Macho Man comes off a third place finish in the Derby and enters the Preakness with a 6/1 morning line. Jockey Kathy Ritvo is trying to become the first female jockey to win the Preakness. Triple M has never finished worse than fourth in his nine start racing career.

The addition of Flashpoint, and the return of front-end “speed horses” like Shackleford and Dance City, should make the pace quicker on a fast track at sunny Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland today.
