Preakness Wagering could have several horses given better Preakness odds to win than Mine That Bird, who went off at 51-1 at the Kentucky Derby only to win going away. Pioneer of the Nile should be an early Preakness Wagering favorite.
Pioneer of the Nile may even have similar Preakness odds of the 3-1 that he had in the Kentucky Derby. Pioneer of the Nile was given an even better chance to win the Kentucky Derby after I Want Revenge, another Derby chalk, was scratched just before post time.
Pioneer of the Nile will enter Preakness Wagering as a strong favorite that led the Derby and appeared to be well on his way to the Preakness Wagering status of Derby winner before Mine That Bird came out of nowhere on the rail to blow past him.
Pioneer of the Nile was among the leaders at the Derby early on and led going into the stretch before one of the biggest upsets heading into Preakness Wagering ever. I Want Revenge may have a most appropriate name for Preakness Wagering as he was scratched at Churchill Downs due to an injury.
I Want Revenge was one of the favorites to enter Preakness Wagering as the defending Derby champion before missing “The Run for the Roses”. With extra time to heal and rest, I Want Revenge may be in perfect condition to take the Preakness Wagering event.
Dunkirk was another strong Kentucky Derby favorite that came up empty. Dunkirk finished a poor 11th at the Derby but will still be considered one of the leading contenders at Pimlico. Dunkirk never was a contender in the race and was no higher than 9th.
General Quarters had a disappointing Derby as well, finishing 10th as a 5-1 favorite. General Quarters just never found his legs or any room to run and was never a factor.
Musket Man earned a lot of respect that is likely to carry over at the Preakness. A 10-1 horse, he finished a strong third in the Derby and was a contender to win it.
