Pimlico Race-Track in Baltimore MD
The Belmont Stakes will be much more interesting if Justify is victorious in his run for the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Track in Baltimore MD. As a 2/5 futures favorite he is the Predicted One. Other than Justify, only Good Magic at 7/2 is being talked about right now leading some inexperienced Triple Crown fans to ask “why are there only two horses running in the Preakness”.
There are of course others, two of which I might consider as long shot bets, Diamond King, and Quip. I was thinking My Boy Jack who came in 5th, 7 lengths behind Justify as another long shot bet, but now I’m told he is skipping the Preakness to be rested up for the Belmont.
I will bet on Justify, we all know he will win, but for the “you never know in me” I will have some action on Diamond King, and Quip, and I will of course put some nice cool cash down on the horse I bet on in the Derby, Good Magic, I mean after all he was the only horse that gave Justify a true run for the money.
