Preakness Stakes 2024: Muth Horse Racing Profile

May 15 update: Muth withdrew from the Preakness Stakes. He opened a 8-5 favorite on the morning line, but will no longer run.

Few Preakness horses carry the intrigue Muth does. The Bob Baffert-trained horse closed as the favorite in futures pool No. 2 in Preakness Stakes odds and likely would have been among the favorites in the Kentucky Derby. The Churchill Downs ban of Baffert entries was extended through 2024, and Muth sat the race out. But Pimlico Race Course doesn’t share that ban, and the colt is ready to show out in the second Triple Crown race.
