Justify Heavily Favored at Pimlico
The Kentucky Derby winner is the favorite at the Preakness Stakes. However, Justify is a 2/5 favorite up from 5/8 following his performance in the mud at Churchill Downs. Good Magic, who finished second at Churchill Downs is at 7/2.
Justify deserves to be the favorite for the 2018 Preakness, which takes place Saturday, May 19 (6:20 PM ET post time on NBC) at Pimlico in Baltimore. Justify odds got better when a number of horses that ran at Churchill Downs were pulled out of the Preakness. Audible, who finished third in Louisville, will be saved for the Belmont Stakes; the colt opened as the second favorite for the Preakness at 5/1 before being taken off the list.
Among the horses expected to run with Justify at Pimlico are Diamond King and Quip, each at 16/1. Diamond King is coming off a victory at the Federico Tesio Stakes, while Quip finished second to Magnum Moon at the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby.
