The 2022 Preakness Stakes will take place Saturday at Pimlico Race Course. Coming off a runner-up finish in the Kentucky Derby, Epicenter is the 6-5 favorite in the 2022 Preakness Stakes odds, followed by Early Voting (7-2) and Secret Oath (9-2). Rich Strike, who won the Kentucky Derby at 80-1, will not be part of the 2022 Preakness Stakes field. Post time is 7:01 p.m. ET. Before locking in any 2022 Preakness Stakes picks, you NEED to see what our resident horse racing guru, Jody Demling, has to say.
A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling has called the Preakness winner nine times in the last 17 years. In the 2020 Preakness Stakes, Demling nailed the Swiss Skydiver-Authentic exacta.
He hit the exacta in the Wood Memorial in April. Last year, he hit the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Belmont Stakes. He's also hit the Derby-Oaks double at Churchill Downs 10 times in the last 14 years, including this year's massive upset with Rich Strike. That means he held a ticket with the winners of both the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby all but four times in his last 14 tries.
In addition, at one point in 2020, he picked the winners of six straight races: the Saudi Cup, Gotham Stakes, Rebel Stakes, Louisiana Derby, Florida Derby and Belmont Stakes. Anyone who has followed him on these races is WAY UP.
For the 2022 Preakness Stakes, we can tell you Demling says Secret Oath, one of the top favorites and fresh off a win in the Kentucky Oaks, barely cracks the top three! Instead, Demling is high on a SURPRISING underdog with the connections and history to DOMINATE on Saturday! He's including this horse in his Preakness Stakes bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any of your own!
