2024 Preakness Stakes horses, futures, odds, date: Expert who hit last year’s superfecta divulges picks

The path to a Triple Crown will continue for Mystik Dan when the 2024 Preakness Stakes takes place on Saturday, May 18. Mystik Dan was a surprise winner of the Kentucky Derby and will be part of the Preakness Stakes 2024 field, trying to take a second step towards becoming the 14th Triple Crown winner. Mystik Dan will break from the No. 5 post at Pimlico Race Course following the 2024 Preakness Stakes post draw earlier this week. Mystik Dan is 5-2 in the 2024 Preakness Stakes odds, while Muth, who was the morning-line favorite, has been scratched due to an elevated temperature. 

Should you back one of the favored 2024 Preakness Stakes horses, or should you target a longshot like Just Steel (15-1) or Mugatu (20-1)? The 2024 Preakness Stakes post time is 7:01 p.m. ET. Before making any 2024 Preakness Stakes picks, be sure to see the horse racing predictions and futures bets from SportsLine’s elite horse racing expert Jody Demling.

A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling enters the 2024 Kentucky Derby having nailed the winner of the Belmont Stakes four of the last six years, including an exacta in 2022 with Mo Donegal and Nest. He also called Flightline’s win at the Breeders’ Cup Classic in November of that year. 

Demling is at his best in the biggest horse races in the world like the Preakness Stakes 2024. In fact, he has hit 11 of the last 16 Derby-Oaks doubles at Churchill Downs. He’s also called 10 of the last 19 Preakness winners, including nailing his Preakness winner, exacta, trifecta and superfecta picks in 2023. He keenly understands when the Kentucky Derby winner was poised for victory or a massive upset in the second leg of the Triple Crown. Anyone who has followed him is up huge.

Now, with the 2024 Preakness Stakes quickly approaching, Demling is sharing his picks and 2024 Preakness Stakes predictions over at SportsLine. Go here to see them.

Top 2024 Preakness Stakes predictions One of Demling’s surprising 2024 Preakness Stakes picks: He is high on Catching Freedom, even though he’s a 6-1 longshot. Catching Freedom ran well at the Kentucky Derby, finishing fourth and within two lengths of the trio that came down to a photo finish. The Brad Cox-trained colt has now finished fourth or better in all six of his career races.

Catching Freedom will also have an experienced jockey in the saddle at the Preakness 2024. He’ll be ridden by Flavien Prat, who rode Rombauer to a surprising Preakness win in 2021. Catching Freedom’s speed figures have improved in his last three starts and Demling says he’s worth backing in 2024 Preakness Stakes bets. See which other horses to back at SportsLine.
