Preakness Stakes 2024 Picks Predictions Experts

Experts from The Post and Action Network handicap the Preakness Stakes. Imagination and Tuscan Gold top picks after Muth's scratch.

The 149th running of the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course is set for Saturday, with post time around 6:50 p.m. The field is down to eight horses after Muth scratched. Experts from The Post and Action Network are handicapping the race.

Tuscan Gold, trained by Chad Brown, is a favorite after Muth's withdrawal. With only three starts and one win, this colt has the speed to potentially inherit the lead and challenge Imagination, Bob Baffert's other entry.

Imagination, expected to set the pace, now has a clear shot at a gate-to-wire victory. Seize the Grey, a long shot, impressed with a win at the Pat Day Mile on Derby Day.

Mystik Dan, the winner at Churchill Downs, may struggle to repeat his success. Just Steel, trained by D. Wayne Lukas, is looking to bounce back after a disappointing Derby.

Flavien Prat, who won the Preakness aboard Rombauer in his only start, is aiming for another victory. The race promises excitement and uncertainty, with each horse bringing its own strengths and challenges to the track.
