2024 Preakness Stakes horses, futures, odds, date: Expert who hit last year’s superfecta shares picks

Trainer Kenny McPeek said he needed to see if Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan was sufficiently recovered from the first leg of the Triple Crown before entering him in the 2024 Preakness Stakes. He confirmed that his horse was good to go after Mystik Dan galloped 1.5 miles at Churchill Downs over the weekend. His entry immediately spices up the 2024 Preakness Stakes field, as there was previously just one other Kentucky Derby horse expected to run, Just Steel. Fourth-place Derby finisher Catching Freedom could also run on Saturday, May 18 at Pimlico Race Course, where he would join Mystik Dan, Just Steel and a field of rested 2024 Preakness Stakes horses. Arkansas Derby winner Muth is the 11-10 favorite in the 2024 Preakness Stakes odds, followed by Mystik Dan (3-1).

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 has only made three starts in his career, breaking his maiden in his second at Gulfstream Park at the end of January. He followed that up with a third-place finish in the Louisiana Derby.

Trainer Chad Brown won the Preakness in 2017 with Cloud Computing and returned to the winner’s circle with Early Voting in 2022. Jockey Tyler Gaffalione has ridden Tuscan Gold in his last two starts and will have the mount again on Saturday. He won the Preakness in 2019 aboard War of Will, and Demling believes he can secure a second victory in 2024. See which other horses to back by logging into CBSSports.com.
