Pimlico Race Course Morning Lines for Preakness Stakes 138

Kentucky Derby Winner Orb top chalk for the Preakness

After a convincing Kentucky Derby win – and with the second, third and fourth-place Derby horses skipping the Preakness – the Bovada fixed odds for Orb to make it two-in-a-row and take the next step to Triple Crown glory are set at 10/11. The Kentucky-bred son of Malibu Moon has won five races in a row, and took the Derby by 2 ½ lengths on a sloppy track. Among Orb’s Derby competition, fifth-place finisher Mylute is a co-second choice for the Preakness at 13/2. Orb has an excellent chance to make the Triple Crown Dream a reality.

Picking a possible Triple Crown spoiler from the small Preakness field

While Orb appears to have a lock on the Preakness, it should be noted most recently Street Sense went off at 6/5 in 2007, only to be beat by Curlin in another nine-horse field. Looking at the horses that didn’t compete at Churchill Downs two weeks ago, Departing is the co-second choice at 13/2, while Governor Charlie is 10/1, and Titletown Five is the long shot at 28/1. In the Derby, Will Take Charge (12-1) was moving well with Orb, until he ran into traffic trouble, and he represents a legitimate challenge should he get a clean trip at Pimilco.
