Mage Favored in Early Preakness Wagering

Once again there’s no such thing as a longshot at the Preakness Stakes (G1).

After none of the nine starters went off at odds higher than 18-1 in 2022, early wagering on the May 20 edition of the middle jewel in the Triple Crown at Pimlico Race Course shows no one above 8-1 in the field of seven reduced by one with the May 19-announced scratch of First Mission .

Chase the Chaos , 50-1 in the original morning line, was 7-1 at 1 p.m. ET Saturday with $2.6 million in the win pool.

Mage , the 4-5 choice in the revised morning line, was 2-1 after the announcement that he bumped his head and received stitches May 18.

The 1 p.m. rundown of odds: 1-National Treasure  3-1, 2-Chase the Chaos 7-1, 3-Mage 2-1; 4-Coffeewithchris  8-1; 5-Red Route One  6-1; 6-Perform  7-1; 7-Blazing Sevens  4-1.

Will-pays in the Black-Eyed Susan/Preakness Double suggest prices could rise on Chase the Chaos and Coffeewithchris by post time. In that exotic wager, they were played to the equivalent of 47-1 and 34-1 odds, respectively, among bettors that had Taxed  in the first leg.
