Preakness Stakes 2018: Justify prohibitive favorite in morning-line odds

Bravazo made his first start on a wet track when sixth in the Kentucky Derby, beaten by eight lengths by Justify.

Kentucky Derby victor Justify drew the seventh post on Wednesday for Saturday's Preakness Stakes in Baltimore where he will seek the second jewel of US thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown.

Of course, American Pharoah went on to win the Triple Crown in 2015, becoming the first horse since Affirmed to accomplish that remarkable feat when he did it in 1978.

Within minutes of their arrival at Pimlico Race Course, Kentucky Derby victor Justify and his trainer circled the stakes barn at a rapid clip. Lookin at Lucky is one of the six Preakness winners trained by Bob Baffert, who will saddle Justify at Old Hilltop on Saturday.

"Ooh, man, talk about pressure", Baffert said with a slight grin as he heard the odds. "I don't want to be 50-1, I like knowing that I have a chance to win. I just feel that when you know that there's a chance you can pull this off and when you can win on the big arena, that's what it's all about".

Good Magic, who held off Audible for second in Louisville, Bravazo and Lone Sailor are going to try to beat Justify one more time.

Riz Ahmed to co-write the screenplay for Ms Marvel
Khan is a teenage Pakistani American from Jersey City, New Jersey with shapeshifting abilities and assumes the mantle of Ms. According to recent reports, Ms Marvel is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe , following the success of the comics.

Weather forecasts call for rain in the Baltimore area every day from Wednesday through Saturday, increasing the likelihood of a sloppy track. "From 7 there's room for error", Baffert said. Each of Baffert's four Derby winners has also won the Preakness.

Quip (12-1) drew the first post while Lone Sailor (15-1), who finished eighth at Churchill Downs, will go from the second post. Diamond King recently won the Federico Tesio Stakes at Laurel Park on April 21, earning him an automatic berth in the Preakness, and he will start from the No. 4 post position with Quip beginning from the No. 1 spot.

What Walden didn't say at that moment, but what he and Baffert believe, is that if Justify runs his race Saturday, nothing else will matter. "He looks terrific, he's doing well". "I was hoping they would scratch him and run Upper Case, but they said they would regret it for the rest of their lives if "Riva" ran second to Upper Case". Regardless of in-race scenarios, Justify is going to be very hard to beat. Prior to the Kentucky Derby, he won the Santa Anita Derby. Elliott Walden of WinStar Farm, which co-owns Justify and Quip, showed his allegiance at the draw by wearing a "Justify" hat and hopes the favorite wins for obvious reasons.

In true Triple Crown style, all eyes will be on Justify at this year's Preakness Stakes.

The good news is that betting on horse racing is legal across the United States, unlike betting on other sports, so you won't have a problem getting picks down online.
