The 2019 Preakness is unique because it is the first time in many many years that none of the top three Kentucky Derby finishers are entered in the second jewel of the Triple Crown. Improbable, who was fourth, leads the Derby runners in the Preakness and he is the 5-2 morning line favorite.

The race appears to have a lot of early speed which will set the table for horses racing from off the pace. There are several excellent win candidates that have the late running style. Look to Bourbon War, Laughing Fox, Owendale, and Signalman to come running down the stretch at generous odds.
