Preakness Stakes betting odds almost always include the hope of a Triple Crown since the Kentucky Derby winner normally is in the race.
While that will be the case again in 2009 Preakness Stakes wagering, not many people believe the chances of winning a Triple Crown will still be alive when the race is over.
Preakness Stakes betting odds tell us that Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird is not likely to be the favorite. He is still not well respected among most gamblers in Preakness Stakes wagering, despite his romp in the Kentucky Derby. Most people believe that was a perfect storm of conditions that allowed Mine That Bird to win. While Mine That Bird won by the largest margin in 63 years in the Kentucky Derby his speed figure was low, the race was in the slop and he got a dream ride.
