How To Bet On 2024 Preakness Stakes in Canada

By Horse Racing

This years Preakness Stakes will take place this Saturday, May 18th at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.

Mystik Dan, the Kentucky Derby winner, will enter the race as the favorite with morning line odds of 5-2. Muth was the original morning line favorite with odds of 8-5, but he was forced to withdraw earlier in th week after spiking a fever. The Muth withdrawal opens the door for Mystik Dan, with a win allowing him to head into the Belmont Stakes in June with a Triple Crown on the line.

The Preakness Stakes will be shown on NBC from 4:30pm to 7:30pm ET on race day. I’m expecting a lot of betting interest on this years race and for this reason I wanted to add this how to guide to betting on the Preakness in 2024.
