The Lowdown on the 2023 Preakness Stakes

The 2023 Preakness Stakes will be the darling of the horse racing world this weekend. The 148th Preakness Stakes will be held tomorrow, Saturday, at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. This will serve as the second jewel of the Triple Crown Series. This is very exciting for bettors, as last year, there was no chance for having a Triple Crown winner. Rich Strike, the winner of the Kentucky Derby last year, was not entered to run the Preakness. But this year will be different, as this year’s derby winner, Mage, will be joining.

Mage is an early 8-5 favorite to win the race, and you can easily see and adjust the odds in your live betting platform up until racetime. The numbers may change a bit, but it seems that Mage will retain the top spot as the favorite to win the Preakness Stakes. If you are new to horse racing, here is a little background on the event.

2023 Preakness Stakes

The Lowdown on the 2023 Preakness StakesThe Preakness Stakes started back in 1873. It always happens two weeks after the Kentucky Derby and held in Baltimore. As the middle jewel of the Triple Crown, it is one of the most important races in the sport. The other jewels are the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes. If you want to open a racebook, you can still earn from the Triple Crown events, since the Belmont Stakes will happen three weeks after the Preakness Stakes.

The Preakness Stakes will have 14 races, with the first post at 10:30AM. The Preakness will be the 13th race of the day. Notable races to join are National Treasure, who is in with trainer Bob Baffert. Baffert is a seven-time Preakness winner, and if National Treasure wins, he will break a tie with 19th centry trainer R. Wyndham Walden for the most number of Preakness wins in history. Mage, the Kentucky Derby winner, is a favorite to win, and many believe that Mage will be the first horse since Justify to win the Derby and Preakness. Blazen Sevens and Red Route One will also be joining.
