Preakness Stakes Morning Odds

With the Preakness Stakes 2011 morning odds we weren’t seeing a whole lot of dramatic fluctuations over previous days.  In fact, we haven’t seen any updates in relationship to the odds at SBG Global over the past 24 hours.  Animal Kingdom remained the 2/1 favorite, Dialed In was still at 4/1, Mucho Macho Man was at 4.5/1.

One of the key differences between this year’s Preakness Stakes and Kentucky Derby involves the weather situation.  While the Derby forecast included potential rain storms, the Baltimore track will remain dry on Saturday thanks to mostly sunny skies. 

There has not been a Triple Crown since 1978 when Affirmed won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont (which will take place three weeks from today). 

The good news for Animal Kingdom is that history appears to be on his side as the favorite has won nearly half of all the Preakness Stakes.

“I just couldn't be happier with how he's doing,” Animal Kingdom trainer Graham Motion said Friday.  “I feel more relaxed today than I have all week, because I've done what I can do and it's out of my hands now.

“I feel very confident. I feel confident in how the horse is doing, let's put it that way.”

There are a few other contenders that should be looked at carefully (below the ad).

Dialed In – He may have been a let down at the Derby but the quick pace at the Preakness Stakes should suit him well.  There is also that tremendous bonus money Dialed In stands to win (not that he’s gonna be able to spend any of it)

Mr. Commons - Well rested but will likely have a tough time against this competition.  He’s also better on grass.

Flashpoint – Another horse that will be fresh.  He lost to Dialed In at the Florida Derby and Dialed In didn’t exactly perform very well at the Kentucky Derby.  His stamina is not the best though Flashpoint is widely considered to have the speed.

King Congie – Has not performed well on dirt.

Isn’t He Perfect – The answer to that question is a resounding “No”.  He’s never won a stakes race. 

Mucho Macho Man – Finished 3rd in the Kentucky Derby and has the speed.  The only concerns we’ve read is that Mucho Macho Man might not be as “good” as Animal Kingdom.

Astrology – Three wins in seven starts and all seven have placed. 

Shackleford – He owned 90 percent of the Kentucky Derby but fizzled out where it counted the most, the very end.  The Preakness Stakes track is shorter, however.

Sway Away – May be a “Stay Away” with this horse pulled from the Derby because of a graded warning. 

Midnight Interlude – Finished dead 16th at the Derby.  Nuff said.

Dance City – Post position is one of the best when it comes to recent trends winners.  Considered among the best contenders in the field of horses that did not run the Derby.

Post time is 6:19 pm ET.  Coverage begins at 2:30 pm, at which point we expect to see an uptick in wagering activity.  Odds should fluctuate during the four hours leading up to the race as well.
