Preakness Stakes 2007 top contenders and odds

One day to go until the second leg of the 2007 Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes 132nd, and we take a look at the top four contenders and their odds of winning.

Preakness Stakes 2007 top contenders and oddsOur online betting website of choice for the Preakness Stakes is Bodog Racebook (official website new window), and we were not surprised that Street Sense and Hard Spun have been listed as the favorite to win the Stakes.

Street Sense (#8) was the horse who won the Kentucky Derby. Its performance was great and has left many to believe the Street Sense will win the Preakness Stakes, as well. The betting odds for Street Sense are 5/4. The jockey will be Calvin Borel, trainer Carl Nafzger, and Street Sense will have the #8 on its side.

Hard Spun (#7) finished 2nd at the Kentucky Derby, and the odds to win the Preakness Stakes are 3/1. Hard Spun is number 7, jockey is Matio Pino, Maryland's all time winning rider, and trainer is Larry Jones. Hard Spun has a record of five victories and one second in its last seven races. The colt will be coming from Delaware Park for the Preakness Stakes.

Curlin (#4) was the favorite to win the Kentucky Derby, but not for the Preakness Stakes with odds 7/2. Robby Albarado will be the rider and Curlin trainer is Steve Asmussen. You should not, however, underestimate the colt that won the Arkansas Derby with the record 10 1/2 lengths. Many considered Curlin's inexperienced, due to the fact that he did not race as a 2-year-old, but the great run at the Kentucky Derby pointed out its potential. Culrin finished 3rd at the Kentucky Derby.

Circular Quay (#3) was one of the five contenders in The Kentucky Derby trained by Todd Pletcher. He is a late comer to the Preakness Stakes, initially scheduled to run the Peter Pan Stakes in preparation for the Belmont Stakes, but Pletcher has obviously changed his mind. Circular Quay, although two weeks after the run at the Derby, should have plenty of energy for the Preakness Stakes, as he has not raced for two months prior to the Derby. Jockey for Circular Quay in the 132nd Preakness Stakes will be John Velazquez.
