139th Preakness Stakes

California Chrome winning the Kentucky Derby

California Chrome won this year's Kentucky Derby and, consequently, instantly became the odds-on favorite to win the Preakness.  Today the horse will do just that.  Of course, there hasn't been a Triple Crown winner in years and just because the betting heavily favors California Chrome it doesn't mean the science does.  Don't get us wrong, we haven't inspected the horses, we haven't spoken to the jockeys, we haven't scoped out the track, all we are saying is that there is a high likelihood that a portion of the betting is sentimental and not scientific.  Watch and see how California Chrome performs.  Post time is 6:18pm eastern.
