Preakness Stakes 2010: Post Time, Odds, Picks, & Predictions

The Preakness Stakes started today, May 15, 2010 at 1:30pm.  If you jump to your TV (after reading this article) you can catch the race and post race show. The Preakness post position have been announced and the Kentucky Derby 2010 winner Super Saver is the early favorite of the crowd to win the the Preakness Stakes race.

Preakness Stakes Post Time

The post time for Saturday’s Preakness was listed at 6:15 p.m. Thursday, the NBC people had their production meeting with the Pimlico people and the post time was moved up three minutes. So now, the 135th running of the Preakness Stakes will have a post time of 6:18.

Preakness Stakes Odds

The early favorite in the Preakness Stakes betting odds is no surprise. Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver has the horse betting experts eye and starts off with 5-2 odds in the Preakness betting competition. Jockey Calvin Borel has won three of the past four Triple Crown betting events and it’s hard to bet against him. He’ll start from the #8 lane which could hurt his rail hugging strategy, but not likely.

Bob Baffert’s impressive horse Lookin’ at Lucky comes in as the second favorite in the sports betting odds. Lookin’ will start out as 3-1 favorite in the Preakness betting odds and has a terrific lane draw (#7) which should help this horse avoid a terrible finish like it suffered in the Kentucky Derby odds action after drawing lane one and getting boxed in on the rail.
