US Sportsbooks Give Mage a 57.9% Of Winning The Preakness Stakes

This year’s Kentucky Derby winner Mage will be the headline act on the Pimlico Preakness Stakes card this Saturday as the improving 3 year-old looks to continue his Triple Crown quest.

Mage will be looking to become the 24th horse to win just the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, plus also dream alive of being the 14th US Triple Crown winner as the bandwagon after Pimlico heads to the Belmont Stakes on June 10.

When he won the Kentucky Derby he returned 152/10 in the betting, but the best horse racing betting sites are taking no chances this time as he’s around the 8/11 mark (with First Mission now scratched) which would mean he’s got a 57.9% chance of winning the Preakness Stakes on Saturday.
