Blazing Sevens is a probable for the 2023 Preakness Stakes field behind two victories last year. The three-year-old Colt has run in many high-profile prep races, most recently the Blue Grass Stakes. While he’s come close, a 100 Brisnet speed figure (BSF) – a strong indicator of Derby success – remains elusive. Below, we’ll look at everything you need to know to bet this horse in the upcoming Preakness Stakes.

The Preakness runs Saturday, May 20 from Pimlico Race Track. Kentucky Derby winner Mage seeks the second jewel in the Triple Crown.
