Stand up and celebrate Baltimore! The 2013 People's Party is rolling along and the Main Event is less than one hour away. Whether you are fortunate enough to be at Pimlico race track, or a regional Maryland OTB bureau, or if you're betting the big race at an online Racebook like the one at bovada.lv, the 138th Preakness Stakes race will garner a global focus today. Post time for the second jewel of the Triple Crown Racing Series is 6:20 PM ET on May 18, 2013.
Orb looks ready to advance his Triple Crown Dream
Although he came into the Kentucky Derby with a lot more fan fair, not to mention lower odds, Orb reminds us 2012 Triple Crown contender I'll Have Another. While handicappers may have had a tough time pin-pointing a "super horse" in the field of 19 in the Run for the Roses, the powerful Orb looks like he'll be tough to beat today. Running out of PP #16 at Churchill Downs, Orb avoided the electric pace early (and a lot of the mud) and then mowed down the field late.
Derby off the pace mate Mylute will challenge Orb
Mylute is a contender we'll be backing in our exotic wagers today as this bay colt was a gaining fifth in the Derby. Running neck and neck in the slop with Orb for most of the Derby, Mylute stands to pull off the upset on a fast dirt track at Pimilico today. Piloted by Lady Jockey Rosie Napravnik, who is a very appealing mix of brains, brawn, and beauty, Mylute can make history by carrying the first female jockey to the Preakness Stakes winners circle at the People's Party!
Maryland OTB Preakness Prediction: $5 Box Orb with Mylute and Departing
After all the drama of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, the racing scene shifts to Pimlico Race Course in anticipation of the running of the 2019 Preakness Stakes. A couple of the high-profile contenders from the Derby are expected in the field, as well as a number of new shooters that add to the handicapping puzzle and could provide good betting value.
The field has been established for the 2016 running of the Belmont Stakes and of the thirteen contenders, there are four horses who competed in the Preakness Stakes (G1) and are moving on to the third jewel of the Triple Crown.
Wise guys who liked Stradivari in the Preakness have every right to maintain their enthusiasm for the Todd Pletcher-trained colt in the Belmont Stakes where the intriguing runner will likely make his next start.
