2018 Preakness Odds with Post Positions

  1. Quip +2000
  2. Lone Sailor +3000
  3. Sporting Chance +4000
  4. Diamond King +3000
  5. Good Magic +350
  6. Tenfold +4000
  7. Justify -230
  8. Bravazo +2800

Preakness Key Horse: Justify -230

Justify won the Kentucky Derby as a favorite. He keyed a ridiculous over $19,000 superfecta. That won’t happen on Saturday in the Preakness Stakes. Justify will win, but he won’t key a huge superfecta. He could key a decent superfecta if Good Magic doesn’t show up until the show slot. That’s why using Justify as the key in the super makes sense.

Second Place Preakness Superfecta Pick

Quip +2000

He has every right to improve after his Tampa Bay Derby win. Also, he’s fresh. I think he has a shot to finish second.

Diamond King +3000

He could beat Quip for second place. I believe he’s coming into his own while most of his competition has already shown their best. That makes him dangerous.

Third Place Preakness Superfecta Pick

** Also using Quip and Diamond King

Good Magic +350

There’s a chance he finishes second to Justify just like he did two weeks ago in the Kentucky Derby. If he does, good for him. The super won’t pay anything, though. That’s why he doesn’t show up until third place on my superfecta Preakness Stakes ticket.

Fourth Place Preakness Superfecta Pick

** Also use Quip, Diamond King, and Good Magic

  • Bravazo +2800
  • Sporting Chance +4000
  • Tenfold +4000
  • Lone Sailor +3000

For the fourth slot, I’m going all. If Justify wins, and either Quip, or Diamond King finishes second, while either Quip, Diamond King, or Good Magic finish third, why not go all for the fourth slot? All four have a shot to finish fourth. Even Sporting Chance, who doesn’t appear to have any shot to win, could beat Bravazo, Tenfold, or Lone Sailor for fourth place.

In fact, his chances of finishing fourth might be better than Bravazo’s, Tenfold’s, or Lone Sailors because he’s got the worst shot to win. His jockey might not even try to win.

One of the horses above could easily finish fourth at huge odds. It wouldn’t make sense not to use every horse in the fourth slot.
