2020 Preakness Stakes Odds, Triple Crown


The Preakness Stakes or what is often called "The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans" is normally the second-leg of horse racing’s “Triple Crown” but due to the global 'coronavirus' pandemic, it has now become the third leg in 2020.

The 2020 Preakness Stakes has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 3 and it will now be the final leg of the 2020 Triple Crown.


The race takes place at Pimlico Race Course from Baltimore, Maryland in the United States and features the top three-year-old horses in the world.

Tiz the Law captured the Belmont Stakes in June but the colt came up short to Authentic by 1 1/4 lengths in the Kentucky Derby in September.

Unfortunately, we won't see a highly anticipated rematch in the Preakness as Tiz the Law will skip the event and start training for the Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 7.

With Tiz the Law sitting out, Authentic has been made the morning-line favorite at 9/5 odds (Bet $100 to win $180).

How to Read the Preakness Stakes Odds

If you’re new to betting on horses, then your starting point for placing bets is understanding the odds for any race or the largest one of them all -- the Preakness Stakes Odds.

Every horse will have betting odds listed next to their number or name and the majority of tracks and sportsbooks list their odds in fractional form. Put simply, the odds are the return that you will receive on your stake or wager on the horse if it wins the race.

The Win wager is the most popular wager in all of horse racing and you’ll cash tickets on this bet if the horse you choose finishes in first place of the race.

Ex. Bet $10 on a horse at 2/1 to win $20
Ex. Bet $10 on a horse at 10/1 to win $100

Bettors wagering $10 on a horse at 2/1 would receive $30 if the horse won because you’ll win $20 on the bet and then receive your initial stake in return.
