The 143rd Preakness Stakes, the second jewel of the Triple Crown, are fast approaching. The horses will post at 6:20 p.m. EST Saturday.
The action at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore will be here before you know it. It’s time to get familiar with the frontrunners.
Unsurprisingly, Justify, which won the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago, is the frontrunner. The horse, trained by Bob Baffert, has odds of 2-5. Justify is looking to make history.

The horse is aiming to become the 13th in history to win all three Triple Crown races.

Don’t sleep, however, on its competition. Good Magic, at 7-2, is a decent bet. Good Magic was the runner-up at the Kentucky Derby. Quip (16-1), the son of Distorted Humor, and Diamond King (16-1), which Javier Castellano will ride, will also be popular selections.
Chad Brown says Good Magic is in for the Preakness
"Both horses (GM & Justify) are going to do things they've never done before–run on 2 weeks rest & run @ Pimlico. We're hopeful our horse responds to that well. If you're asking how we're going to close the gap … that's it."
