Morning Line Odds


Owner: Stonestreet Stables and George Bolton

Trainer: Steve Asmussen

Jockey: Mike Smith

Morning-line odds: 15-1

The skinny: Has the speed to be up close to the pace and hasn't been off the board in seven starts. No. 1 post could be his biggest obstacle.


Owner: Thomas McClay and Harry Nye

Trainer: Chris Grove

Jockey: Julian Pimentel

Morning-line odds: 30-1

The skinny: Fourth-place finisher in the Grade I Wood Memorial has been most effective when showing early speed.


Owner: West Point Thoroughbreds

Trainer: Tom Albertrani

Jockey: Robby Albarado

Morning-line odds: 20-1

The skinny: Ran third in the Blue Grass Stakes but was unplaced in two prior starts over a dirt surface.


Owner: Peachtree Stable

Trainer: Wesley Ward

Jockey: Cornelio Velasquez

Morning-line odds: 20-1

The skinny: Was brilliant in winning the Grade II Hutcheson by 71/4 lengths but ran fourth in the Florida Derby, his first try around two turns.


Owner: Michael Lauffer and W.D. Cubbedge

Trainer: Dale Romans

Jockey: Jesus Castanon

Morning-line odds: 12-1

The skinny: Considered by many a likely candidate to steal the Preakness on the front end. However, he got dream fractions in the Kentucky Derby and still couldn't hold on to hit the board.


Owner: Batman Stable, Philip Lebherz, Cindy Olsen, Janet Sharp and Glen Wallace

Trainer: Jeff Bonde

Jockey: Garrett Gomez

Morning-line odds: 15-1

The skinny: Form of the Arkansas Derby where he ran fourth has held up, but he has yet to win over two turns.


Owner: Arnold Zetcher

Trainer: Bob Baffert

Jockey: Martin Garcia

Morning-line odds: 15-1

The skinny: Baffert said the Santa Anita Derby winner lost interest when he was taken back in the Kentucky Derby. Expect him to be much closer to the pace on Saturday.


Owner: Estate of Edward Evans

Trainer: Todd Pletcher

Jockey: Ramon Dominguez

Morning-line odds: 12-1

The skinny: Son of City Zip ran a big third in the Arkansas Derby in just his third career start.


Owner: Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and Dream Team Racing

Trainer: Kathy Ritvo

Jockey: Rajiv Maragh

Morning-line odds: 6-1

The skinny: Lanky colt will be coming in the stretch. Question is whether he has enough speed to conquer this group.


Owner: Robert LaPenta

Trainer: Nick Zito

Jockey: Julien Leparoux

Morning-line odds: 9-2

The skinny: Should get a lot more pace to run at on Saturday, but the Preakness isn't always kind to stone-cold closers.


Owner: Team Valor International

Trainer: H. Graham Motion

Jockey: John Velazquez

Morning-line odds: 2-1

The skinny: Has already shown what he is capable of in the Derby. Can he still beat this group if he bounces off that effort?


Owner: Kharag Stables

Trainer: Doodnauth Shivmangal

Jockey: Edgar Prado

Morning-line odds: 30-1

The skinny: Fifth in the Jerome Handicap last time out and was soundly beaten in the Wood Memorial, as well.
