Odds to Win the 2015 Preakness: Firing Line

Odds to win the 2015 Preakness Stakes had Firing Line set at 4/1 for a payout potential of $40 on every $10 bet.

Heading into this month’s Kentucky Derby Firing Line finished 1st or 2nd in all five of his races including a 2nd place finish in the grade 1 Futurity.  Not surprisingly, he finished 2nd at the Derby behind Preakness favorite American Pharoah.

Jockey Gary Stevens will be back in the saddle again.  He came within a length of his fourth Kentucky Derby win in fact.

"Hopefully we can turn the tables on American Pharaoh, the same as we did Dortmund," Stevens said. "But believe me, I have plenty of respect for all three horses. They are very, very good and exceptional colts."

Firing Line does have an edge over American Pharoah here as the favorite drew the dreaded number one post position.
