The 2021 Preakness Stakes runs on Saturday, May 15 at Pimlico Race Course. Post time is 6:47 p.m. ET, and Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit is one of the top favorites at 4-1 in the latest 2021 Preakness Stakes odds. Before making any 2021 Preakness Stakes picks, you NEED to see what legendary handicapper Hammerin' Hank Goldberg is saying.
The former horse racing analyst for ESPN and NBC, Goldberg became a legendary handicapper by going straight to the source. In 2004, he had dinner before the Belmont Stakes with trainer Nick Zito at a pizzeria in Queens. The dinner led Goldberg to play Zito's 36-1 monster longshot Birdstone to win and on top of his exacta, trifecta and superfecta bets. When Birdstone shocked the world, Goldberg won $24,000!
His success has continued at SportsLine. In the San Felipe Stakes in March of last year, Hammer gave out a $20 exacta that paid 9-1. In the Belmont Stakes last June, Goldberg was all over Tiz the Law, who scored a convincing victory in the year's first Triple Crown race. In the Blue Grass Stakes, Hammer nailed the Art Collector-Swiss Skydiver exacta. Last July, he hit the Authentic-Ny Traffic exacta in the Haskell. And in August in the Pacific Classic, he gave out the Maximum Security-Sharp Samurai exacta.
Before last year's Kentucky Derby, trainer Bob Baffert told Goldberg that Authentic was his best Derby runner. As a result, Goldberg listed him among his top horses, and Authentic held off Tiz the Law by almost four lengths. Anyone who has followed Goldberg's lead is WAY UP!
Now, he's turned his attention to the 2021 Preakness Stakes.
For the 146th Run for the Black-Eyed Susans, we can tell you Goldberg is fading Concert Tour, even though he is a two-time graded stakes winner and one of the top favorites at 4-1 in the 2021 Preakness Stakes odds.
Instead, Goldberg is backing a double-digit underdog who's flying under the radar despite a stellar track record! You ABSOLUTELY need to see what Hammer has to say before locking in any picks of your own!
