Preakness 2024

 Not thrilled with this race. May be wet or muddy. Muth, the likely favorite, was scratched with a fever by Baffert. So we are left with another Baffert, 9 Imagination. Speedy and will lead until late, although we don't know whether he will like mud. Likely questionable competition in CA. I think that Lukas will send 6 Seize the Day who won the Pat Day mile on Derby Day. So I'm betting that neither will win.

I can't get away from 3 Catching Freedom. My second favorite in the Derby who wasn't a threat but only less than two lengths from the winner. Has the wrong come from behind style for the Preakness, but I'm betting the horse will be closer than he has been.

Nothing wrong with 5 Mystik Dan who will be the likely favorite. Likes mud and ran great in the Derby with a bit of luck up the rail. The most dangerous horse is 8 Tuscan Gold, trained by Chad Brown. Missed the Derby, little experience, but working well. Seems to fit the profile for Chad's winners in the Preakness. Major chance to win.

Safe bet: $2 Exbox 3-5-8= $12

My Bets

Win: 3       $5 Exbox: 3-5-8= $30    $20 Exbox: 3-8= $40     $10 Exbox: 3-5= $20

Good luck!
