Full horses list and latest odds for the 2024 Preakness Stakes

Must read

We are just four days away from Mystik Dan attempting to secure the second leg of the 2024 Triple Crown, as he will compete at Pimlico Race Track in Baltimore, Maryland in the Preakness Stakes.

With each horse drawing their post yesterday, the odds on each horse have changed based on their position. We saw at the Kentucky Derby how important post draw can be with the Kentucky Derby as each of the top-two finishers had two of the top-three post positions. Where the horse starts can have a drastic effect on their opportunity to win this historic race.

Here are the latest odds for each horse competing in this weekend’s race. All odds via CBS Sports.
