A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling enters the 2024 Kentucky Derby having nailed the winner of the Belmont Stakes four of the last six years, including an exacta in 2022 with Mo Donegal and Nest.

He’s also called 10 of the last 19 Preakness winners, including nailing his Preakness winner, exacta, trifecta and superfecta picks in 2023. He keenly understands when the Kentucky Derby winner was poised for victory or a massive upset in the second leg of the Triple Crown. Anyone who has followed him is up huge.

Top 2024 Preakness Stakes predictions

One of Demling’s surprising 2024 Preakness Stakes picks: He is high on Tuscan Gold, even though he’s a 5-1 longshot that didn’t run in the Kentucky Derby. Tuscan Gold was originally scheduled to run in the Peter Pan Stakes, but he will run in the Preakness instead. Two-time Preakness winner Chad Brown said he wanted to enter Tuscan Gold in the Peter Pan to give himself time to contemplate running in the Preakness instead, which is ultimately the decision he landed on.

Brown won the Preakness in 2017 with Cloud Computing and in 2022 with Early Voting, neither of which ran in the Kentucky Derby. Tuscan Gold finished third in the Louisiana Derby, getting beaten by just 1 3/4 lengths. He is in an ideal position to run well on Saturday after skipping the Kentucky Derby, and Demling likes what he has seen from the lightly raced horse. See which other horses to back by logging into
