13 Horses in Preakness Stakes Betting at SBG Global
Leading the way in Preakness Stakes odds is the filly Rachel Alexandra at 8-5 at the sports book.
Preakness Stakes betting numbers heavily favor Rachel Alexandra. Even with post #13, where no horse has ever won the Preakness from, she is still a big favorite in Preakness Stakes betting. Pimlico oddsmaker Frank Carulli believes the horse is far superior to the other horses in the race. No filly has won in Preakness Stakes betting since 1924 and the last filly to go off as the Preakness Stakes betting favorite was Winning Colors in 1988. Winning Colors finished third in Preakness Stakes betting that year.
A total of seven horses since 1970 have started from post #13 in Preakness Stakes odds and none have won. Rachel Alexandra assistant trainer Scott Blasi did not seem concerned about the post though. “We’re happy with the 13 hole,” he said. “She has a long run to the first turn and she’s very capable of putting herself in good position. We’ll sit down and see where we want to be. But with her being a filly and all the pressure that could be on her, we feel like it’s a good draw. With 13 horses, there will be traffic, which we can avoid. These races can stack up with everybody trying to get a spot.” Preakness Stakes betting on Saturday should see Big Drama go to the lead from the rail. Sports betting info shows that Rachel Alexandra may be able to sit behind the leaders but that is a dangerous way to go in Preakness Stakes betting.
Preakness Stakes odds have Rachel Alexandra as the favorite at the sports book followed by Pioneerof the Nile, Friesan Fire and Kentucky Derby winner, Mine That Bird. The Preakness Stakes betting odds on Pioneerof the Nile are 5-1 while Friesan Fire and Mine That Bird are 6-1 in Preakness Stakes betting. Sports betting information shows that Mine That Bird will have a new jockey as Hall of Famer Mike Smith will ride while Calvin Borel gets off Mine That Bird and rides Rachel Alexandra.
While some of the horses in Preakness Stakes betting might have an outside chance, even other trainers are not that confident in beating Rachel Alexandra in Preakness Stakes odds. Friesan Fire trainer Larry Jones believes the filly is a star. “There’s been some awful nice fillies over the years, like Winning Colors, Azeri, Personal Ensign,” he said. “But this one could be the best since Ruffian.”
