Three of the last five Kentucky Derby winners have gone on to win the Preakness Stakes. Always Dreaming will seem to do the exact same and add the jewel of the Triple Crown with a win this Saturday afternoon. The Kentucky Derby winner is a -125 preferred to win the Preakness at Pimlico at sportsbooks tracked by OddsShark.com.
With the win at Churchill Downs Always Dreaming picked up his fourth consecutive victory. The horse appeared great in the Kentucky Derby, pulling away in the bunch down the stretch and eventually taking the lead on with approximately a half of a mile left at the race. Always Dreaming is the one to beat in this field.
Timeless Empire (+300 to win the Preakness) was the betting favorite to win the Kentucky Derby from the weeks leading up to the function. A break from the gate in the Derby, falling far from the pack to have much of a chance at coming from behind doomed the horse.
Timeless Empire finished with a solid revealing but this area and track that was faster should lead to a result in Baltimore.
While grey Empire was the horse that was expected to create a late kick it ended up being Lookin At Lee that seemed the best down the stretch.
