Racing Dudes 2020 Preakness Stakes Wagering Guide and Picks

Kentucky Derby winner Authentic will lead the charge from Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert in Saturday’s $1 million Preakness Stakes (G1), the final leg of the 2020 American Triple Crown series. For the first time in the race’s storied past, the Preakness is part of the Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge Series. The winner will earn an all-expenses-paid berth into the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1).

Baffert’s Authentic drew post 9 and was given 9/5 favoritism. Authentic is followed closely by Art Collector (5/2), Swiss Skydiver (6/1), and Thousand Words (6/1) in the latest Preakness Stakes odds 2020. 

“The reason I’ve won it so many times is I’ve always had the best horse,” Baffert said. “That’s why I won. I’ve won the Derby with the best horse and I’ve lost the Derby with the best horse. The losses bother me. I think about the losses more – the ones that got away from me,” Baffert said. “The Preaknesses have never gotten away when I’m here with the best horse.”
