2014 Preakness Stakes Odds


With the Run for the Roses all done, the attention of the horse racing community has turned toward the second leg of the Triple Crown Series, the Preakness Stakes. The event will take place at 5:00pm ET on Saturday, May 17th at the Pimlico Racetrack in Baltimore, Maryland; coverage of the race will be provided by NBC. While the field for this year’s Preakness Stakes has yet to be determined, it is safe to assume a number of Derby competitors, including winner California Chrome, will participate in the Triple Crown race. The Preakness Stakes odds makers are expecting that to be the case as their opening 2014 Preakness Stakes Odds feature 16 Kentucky Derby colts.

2014 Preakness Stakes OddsObviously, that number will decrease as the 1 3/16 miles Preakness will send no more than 14 horses to the starting gate; however, current favorite California Chrome is a lock for the Preakness barring an injury. The Lucky Pulpit sired colt, which is seeking to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed conquered the big three in 1978, is drawing a -130 line to win the Preakness Stakes.

Commanding Curve, the surprising second place Derby finisher, is a second pick at 10-1 odds. Rounding out the top five Preakness favorites are non-Derby runners Social Inclusion, Strong Mandate, and Hoppertunity at 14-1, 20-1, and 20-1 odds respectively. Hoppertunity was the consensus second favorite to win the Kentucky Derby following the event’s post draw, but a front leg issue resulted in trainer Bob Baffert withdrawing the colt from the race.

While the Triple Crown has eluded Derby winners for over 30 years, a Derby/Preakness double has not. Twelve horses have pulled off the feat since Affirmed won the Triple Crown, including recent champions Smarty Jones, Big Brown, and I’ll Have Another
