Preakness 2018 Draw and Odds: Justify Is Overwhelming Favorite

Cloud Computing, left ridden by Javier Castellano leads Classic Empire with Julien Leparoux to win the 142nd Preakness Stakes horse race at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Pimlico is all gussied up agai Kentucky Derby winner Justify draws 7 post, is heavy 1-2 favorite for Preakness

The 143rd running of the Preakness Stakes is set for this Saturday as Justify looks to continue his undefeated career in the second leg of the Triple Crown.

Seven horses are set to line up against him, including three he beat in the Derby and some new contenders.

Justify faces a smaller field than that which the horse faced at the Derby. No. 2 Lone Sailor is 15-1, No. 6 Tenfold and No. 8 Bravazo are 20-1 and No. 3 Sporting Chance and No. 4 Diamond King are 30-1 on the morning line. This paid over $1,000 on a $1 bet at last year's Preakness. The last time there were fewer than eight runners in the Preakness was 1986, when Snow Chief, that year's Derby favorite, defeated Derby victor Ferdinand.

Baffert said Justify, who was unraced as a 2-year-old but has won all four of his starts, would have his first Pimlico workout on Friday.

"The reason I think (all his Derby winners took the Preakness) is they were good horses, they were the best horse, and they were doing really, really well".

Not only is unbeaten Kentucky Derby victor Justify the hottest 3-year-old in the country, but his trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Mike Smith are also in the midst of a remarkable run of success together. Minutes after Justify gave Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm its second Kentucky Derby trophy, Walden's fierce joy mingled with humble gratitude. "If we're going to do something serious on that racetrack, we've got to get paid for it", the six-time Preakness victor said.

Man threatens to call ICE on workers speaking Spanish in NYC
The lawyer was seen in a viral vidwo berating a restaurant employee who was speaking Spanish to a customer. So my next call is going to be to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country.

If you're betting at a window, whether it be at Pimlico or your local track simulcasting the Preakness, say the name of the track, the number race you're betting, how much you want to wager, the type of wager and the numbers (post positions) of the horses you're including in your bet.

Baffert told the crowd in Baltimore at Wednesday's post position draw that he was "glad to see Post Malone here". Baffert said he kept the workout light because of the conditions.

There were a few concerns when Jusify's flight to Baltimore was delayed on Wednesday but Baffert said all was OK. "He was just getting warmed up". "He made arrangements to send me a winner's circle picture after Noble Indy won the Louisiana Derby".

After a dominant performance in the Kentucky Derby, Justify is back racing this weekend in the 2018 Preakness Stakes, looking to move one step closer to Triple Crown glory. "So you have wiggle room when you have two superior horses like that".

Derby runner-up Good Magic is the second choice at 3-1, but Justify is the horse to beat with the chance to give Baffert his seventh Preakness victor and a shot at a second Triple Crown in four years after American Pharoah did it in 2015. Good Magic, the second-choice at 3-1, was assigned slot five. "Elliott and his staff do an wonderful job, and I think Elliott knows the game as well as anybody in the industry". My feelings going into his first race this year were that he'd trained better than he did last year, and he's a very good morning horse. "We'll keep it interesting, but we're realistic".
