The Word On Mage
May 15: Opened as the Preakness favorite at 8-5 and will run from Gate 3.
May 16: Mage looks to become just the 13th Triple Crown victor, the first since Justify in 2018. He is also the lone Kentucky Derby participant to run in the Preakness, the first time only one horse has raced in both since 1948.
