Preakness 2018 Draw and Odds: Justify Is Overwhelming Favorite

TSN's coverage begins at 5 p.m. ET on TSN2 as the top performing thoroughbreds in the world compete in the Middle Jewel of the American Triple Crown.

Justify, the victor of the 144th Kentucky Derby, is headed to Pimlico to get ready to run for a chance at the triple crown. With five-time Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Bob Baffert, the headliner is once again said to have the best-odds throughout the race. Bravazo finished 8 lengths behind, with Lone Sailor 9 1/4 lengths out.

Good Magic was second in the morning line at 3-1, and Quip got the shortest odds of the new shooters at 12-1.

Justify will face three other challengers he beat two weeks ago at Churchill Downs - Good Magic, Lone Sailor and Bravazo - and four horses who skipped the Derby - Quip, Tenfold, Sporting Chance and Diamond King.

You can see where every horse stands heading into the race below.

Justify did have a hoof issue coming out of the Kentucky Derby, and a specialist flew in from Florida to re-shoe the horse's foot, writes Fran Jurga for HoofBlog.com.

The 2018 Preakness Stakes will take place Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

James Scully from Brisnet has a look at why Preakness history favors horses who run in the Kentucky Derby.

Last year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor had a solid showing in the Kentucky Derby (second) and this son of Curlin appears well suited for the 1 3/16-mile Preakness distance.
