Mystik Dan will gun for his second-straight Triple Crown race victory in the Preakness Stakes, where he’s installed as the clear favorite thanks to Muth scratching after spiking a fever.

If you’re betting on the race, remember that because of parimutuel wagering, getting your bet in as close to post time as possible gives you the best idea of where the final odds will land. Betting early in the day can be a bit of a shot in the dark, as the odds can move significantly before post-time.
