 Yankee Bravo Odds

Given Yankee Bravo’s experience and success on vastly different tracks, he might be a potential sleeper at the 133rd running of the Preakness Stakes. Oddsmakers from Online Sports Book Bodog have established Yankee Bravo’s odds at 20/1 to win.

One of Yankee Bravo’s strengths is that he can race on all surfaces, including dirt, synthetic, cushion and tapeta. Combine that with his experience with some decent competition and you have a horse that is worth a second look.

Working against Yankee Bravo, however, is that he didn’t race in the Kentucky Derby. In the previous 24 Preakness Stakes, only two horses (Red Bullet and Bernardini) have won the Preakness after not racing in the Kentucky Derby.

If the history holds true the fact that Yankee Bravo didn’t race at the Kentucky Derby will definitely hurt his chances as it relates to getting more experience with better horses. Even though many consider Big Brown as the hands down favorite at 20/1 to win, oddsmakers clearly don’t think it’s out of the question for Yankee Bravo to come home with a fairly solid run.

Wednesday’s post draw saw Yankee Bravo pull the number 4 post position for Saturday’s Preakness.
