Big Brown Odds

Big Brown doesn't have many critics heading into 133rd Preakness Stakes. After his impressive win in the Kentucky Derby focus has shifted from his lack of experience to his commanding Derby victory.

Oddsmakers from several Internet Sports Books including Bodog and Sportsbook.com have Big Brown listed at 1/4 odds to win the 2008 Preakness or better. In comparison, Big Brown's closest competitor Gayego is listed at 8/1 odds to win.

Not one other horse in this year’s incredibly weak Preakness field can match Big Brown’s speed. Most agree that it will take an act of God to stop Big Brown from securing the second jewel of the 2008 Triple Crown.
