Preakness Stakes 2024: Mystik Dan Horse Racing Profile

Written By Brett Gibbons | Last Updated

Win, lose, or draw in the Preakness Stakes, Mystik Dan will go down in horse racing history. He captured a victory in the 150th Kentucky Derby in one of the closest finishes ever, nudging out Sierra Leone and Forever Young in a literal photo finish. His Kentucky Derby win will certainly slash his Preakness Stakes odds, should his team decide to run.

Mystik Dan remains probable but not confirmed to run at Pimlico Race Course. Sitting this out would end another attempt at a Triple Crown. He closed a 45-1 longshot in the Futures Pool No. 2 – a number sure to drop dramatically leading up to post time. Below, we’ll discuss everything you need to know before betting on Mystik Dan in the Preakness.
