How Do Preakness Stakes Odds Work?

Unlike betting on fixed odds, horse-racing odds continue to move until the gates open. Perhaps you’re familiar with a frantic ticket counter scene with dozens of people clamoring each other to place their bets. That’s a horse-racing counter.

Even if you place your bet today, your odds will continue to move until post-time. Often, sharp bettors will wait until the last minute to avoid tipping their hands, causing a flux of people to bet their horse and ultimately water down their odds.

Preakness Stakes Information

As the racing world turns its attention to Baltimore, Md., anticipation rises for the Preakness Stakes. This race is the second jewel in the historic Triple Crown of thoroughbred racing.

If Mystik Dan emerges victorious in the Preakness Stakes, he will be eligible for the final leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, on Saturday, June 8. However, Mystik Dan (5-2) is the first Derby winner who has not been favored among Preakness Stakes morning-line odds since 2012. That is because Muth (8-5), the Bob Baffert-trained betting favorite ineligible for the Kentucky Derby, is in this field.

In 2024 and 2025, the Belmont Stakes will occur at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., because of ongoing renovations at Belmont Park.
