Rogue Ratings Computer Projections for The 142nd Preakness Stakes

This Saturday, May 20, 2017 at Pimlico Race Course we will have the 142nd Running of The Preakness Stakes which will be Race #13 on the Pimlico race card with a listed post time of 7:35pm Est and a field of 10 horses going to post.


The Rogue Handicapper® gives you his analysis of the second leg of the Triple Crown here and only at on his blog page “From the Rail”.

Here again we have a competitive field in the Preakness Stakes as we did in the Derby and which was proven by the huge payouts in the trifecta and superfecta.

You will very rarely see a race with the Rogue Ratings™ computer program that gives you seven projected plays out of ten horse entered in a race, but that is what we have here.

Now, just like in the Derby we have a competitive group of horses (of which the Rogue Ratings™ gave you #5-Always Dreaming as only one of two projected winners paying $11.40-$7.20-$5.80 across the board) and which was proven by the huge payouts in the trifecta ($1 returned $8,297.20) and superfecta ($1 returned $75,974.50). This was created by two long shots running second and third (of which Rogue Ratings™ gave out #11-Battle of Midway as the best long shot play) …just saying!

Below, I will give you my personal analysis of the Preakness Stakes with possible betting combinations to use to get you to the cashier windows! And as always, “May the rogue ratings velocity numbers be with you”!


The Rogue Ratings™ computer program sees two horse as the projected wagering keys in the Preakness Stakes which is the #4-Always Dreaming (4/5) listed as the Speed Horse (S) which is the best early runner with a low velocity number. The Race Shape again sets-up very well for him where he should be able to gain control of this race from the opening stages of the race. Now, when they close in on the wire he should still have his nose around at the finish-line!

The second key horse to use in your betting selected by the Rogue Ratings™ in The Preakness Stakes is the #5-Classic Empire (3-1) is listed as a Rogue Squared Horse (R2) which is a second-best type of outlier horse with a low velocity number.


If your looking to key on a couple of long shots in The Preakness Stakes I believe the first one is #6-Gunnevera (15-1) which is the Rogue Squared Horse (R2) that is the second-best type of outlier horses with a low velocity number looks like a solid price play. In addition, this horse ran a very tough race and still looks to me to be moving forward in his form-cycle which looks to have him around at the wire. This long shot is a must use in your exotic bets!

And the other key long shot is #10-Conquest Mo Money (15-1) is listed as another Rogue Squared Horse (R2) which the second-best type of outlier horse with a low velocity number. This one skipped the Derby, but the Rogue Ratings™ loved this horse in the Arkansas Derby when he just missed in the last steps of that race against rival Classic Empire at odds of 17-1. He looks to still be in the good part of his form-cycle and deserves consideration in this race.
