Latest odds and full list for all eight horses for the 2024 Preakness Stakes


Two weeks after the 150th running of the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes – the second leg of the horse racing Triple Crown – will begin its 149th iteration.

The Preakness is scheduled for Saturday, May 18 at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. The race has a familiar name leading the way in betting odds. Morning-line odds for the race have Derby winner Mystik Dan as the heavy favorite, though it wasn’t always his race to win.

Muth, one of the horses trained by eight-time (including 2023) Preakness winner Bob Baffert, was scratched from the race on Wednesday with a fever. The scratch pushed Mystik Dan into the top spot in odds. Baffert will focus his efforts on training up his other horse present at Pimlico: Imagination.

Here are the latest odds for Preakness – as well as each horse’s post position – heading into Saturday, according to CBS Sports.
