Horse Racing BettingThere is no doubt that the Preakness Stakes odds are shaping up for Orb (Odds To Win Preakness: 1 to 2 at BetOnline Sportsbook) to win. Not only was he the Kentucky Derby winner, but he also ended up getting on the rail at the Preakness Stakes, clearly the best position for a horse to be in. Now, Orb can run the race that he wants to run from the front of the pack, and he has nothing but speed around him as well. The question mark that we have with Orb is whether he is going to be able to post a fast enough Beyer Speed Rating to be able to win the Preakness. We had that same question at the Derby, and he was able to win, but a 104 at Churchill Downs isn’t all that great. The par rating for the Preakness Stakes is 109, and Orb has never come anywhere near to that in his entire career. He’s going to need to come up with his fastest race ever if he is going to take the second leg of the Triple Crown. We aren’t doubting it, but we do know that there could be some problems that lie ahead for Orb.

Just to Orb’s inside is another horse that is going to come out of the blocks flying, Goldencents (2013 Preakness Odds: 7.50 to 1 at BetOnline Sportsbook). Jockey Kevin Krigger did a horrid job on this horse at the Kentucky Derby, but the fact of the matter is that the horse just couldn’t get into a position at the front of the crowded field, and he ultimately paid the price for it. As soon as there was wet dirt kicked into the face of Goldencents, he had it. The horse ended up incredibly far off of the pace, but Rick Pitino’s horse is going to be back for another go at Orb in the second leg of the Triple Crown. This is a case of a horse that has a great price on his head after a horrid run in the biggest race of his career. We saw Lookin At Lucky win the Preakness Stakes after a lousy Kentucky Derby, and we very well could see Goldencents end up doing the exact same thing. This is the biggest race in the career of Jockey Kevin Krigger, as he badly needs to prove that he can win one of these major races. If he doesn’t, he runs the risk of becoming nothing more than a regional jockey once again, most likely at Santa Anita.

Will Orb Win The Triple Crown?

  • Yes, I think he will..... (36%, 37 Votes)
  • Possibly, but I am not convinced until he wins the preakness.... (31%, 32 Votes)
  • Not gonna happen... (19%, 20 Votes)
  • Doubt it, even if he wins in the Preakness, Belmont will be too much for him.... (14%, 14 Votes)

Horse Racing OddsThe only horse that didn’t run in the Kentucky Derby that is considered to really have a shot here at the Preakness Stakes is Departing (Current Preakness Odds: 6 to 1 at BetOnline Sportsbook). Departing was the Illinois Derby winner, and he won that race in relatively impressive fashion, but he did it against a bunch of horses that never really had much of a shot of competing in the Triple Crown races. We don’t know a lot more about this horse than that, but we do know that he is a closer in a race in which there is a rabbit (Titletown Five) and a bunch of horses that are favorites that might try to keep up with him. It could bode well for the No. 4 horse, who has four wins in his five starts in his career. We just don’t know if the value is really there on Departing to warrant making him a part of your exotics, though anything that Orb isn’t in would ultimately pay some darn good money.

Way on the outside though, is Itsmyluckyday (Odds To Win The Preakness: 12 to 1 at BetOnline Sportsbook). Itsmyluckyday is a horse that we wanted to back in the Kentucky Derby, but he just didn’t run all that well. He was never in a position to run his race, and now, we think that he is going to have a better opportunity to do so even though he is starting from the far outside in a nine-horse field. We still look back at that Florida Derby run and see Itsmyluckyday as a horse that has closing abilities, and it darn near was able to outkick the mighty Orb, who is the odds on favorite in this race. The fact that this colt’s odds are worse at the Preakness is borderline insane, and we know that in the end, Itsmyluckyday does have a chance in this nine-horse field to take the cake.
