2024 Preakness Stakes post positions, entries, field, odds, lineup, horses, start time, complete guide

With the Kentucky Derby now in the books, all the attention in horse racing turns to Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland for the 149th running of the Preakness Stakes. Dubbed the “People’s jewel” of thoroughbred racing, this event typically separates the contenders from the pretenders when it comes to the Triple Crown. Mystik Dan has the chance to make history after winning at Churchill Downs earlier this month and heads into the eight-horse field on Saturday as the favorite.

His path to victory got slightly less daunting on Wednesday was morning-line favorite Muth was scratched from the race with a spike in temperature, according to trainer Bob Baffert.

“We are sick about this. The horse had been doing really well,” Baffert said. “But we have to do what’s right by the horse.”

With the scratch, the field is now down to just eight horses for the 1.125-mile race and Mystik Dan is favored to get the job done against some familiar names.

There won’t be any massive longshots like there are at the Kentucky Derby given the small field. The two biggest longshots will open out of the first two gates with Mugatu and Uncle Heavy both at 20-1. Other longshots include Seize the Grey and Just Steel at 15-1. The toughest competition expected for Mystik Dan appears to be Catching Freedom (6-1), Tuscan Gold (8-1) and Imagination (6-1).

Here is how you can watch the action on Saturday evening along with the post draw and latest odds on the race. Stay tuned to this page for any news or developments ahead of post time.
