The 149th Preakness Stakes saw one of the smaller fields, with eight horses competing for the second jewel of the Triple Crown. There was a clear favorite amid the live odds for the Pimlico race. But it was Seize the Grey in the end.

The Preakness Stakes, established in 1873, has a rich history and is a significant event in the world of horse racing. It is known for its unique traditions and has often been a turning point in the Triple Crown race.

In a surprising turn of events, Derby winner Mystik Dan took the lead in odds following the withdrawal of the early favorite, Muth, due to a spike in temperature. Muth, a horse trained by the legendary eight-time Preakness winner Bob Baffert, was a strong contender to take home the title. Last year, Baffert's horse National Treasure emerged victorious in the Preakness, and he will be looking to add a ninth victory to his record with his other horse in the race, Imagination.

The Preakness Stakes, a race known for its unpredictability, and it was the 9-1 odds horse Seize the Grey from Pimlico with Mystik Dan coming in second.
