Preakness Stakes Odds: Justify In, Bolt d’Oro Out. The field for Saturday’s Preakness Stakes (NBC, 6:20 PM ET post time) is starting to take shape – and it’s looking good for Justify. The reigning Kentucky Derby champion is a heavy 2/5 favorite at Bovada, and his odds are likely to shorten now that Bolt d’Oro, the third favorite at 10/1, has been taken out of the hunt. Trainer Mick Ruis confirmed Sunday morning that Bolt d’Oro will compete in the Grade 1 Met Mile instead.

That doesn’t leave much in the way of proven competition for Justify. Good Magic, who finished second at the Kentucky Derby, has been confirmed for the Preakness; he’s 7/2 for now, followed by a pair of “shooters” in Diamond King (14/1) and Quip (16/1) who come to Pimlico fresh after skipping the Derby. Also confirmed are Bravazo (20/1), Sporting Chance (22/1) and Lone Sailor (25/1). Place a Bet Here.

The post position draw for the Preakness is Wednesday, with a maximum of 14 horses allowed to compete. Justify has been galloping with energy at Churchill Downs since his impressive Derby run; reports indicate that the “minor” bruise on his foot has healed, and he’s expected to fly into Baltimore on Wednesday with trainer Bob Baffert.
