Catching Freedom finished a modest fourth in the Kentucky Derby, finishing behind a three-horse photo finish. The showing was promising, even if it wasn’t the result his team hoped for, and Catching Freedom was confirmed to run in the Preakness Stakes. He closed at 14-1 in 2024 Preakness Stakes odds futures pool No. 2, about the same mark he went off at for the Derby. With two other strong horses entering the field (Muth, Imagination), Catching Freedom may fly under the radar and is worth a look for exotics at Pimlico Race Track.

Below, we’ll look at everything you need to know to bet Catching Freedom in the upcoming Preakness Stakes.
