Updated Preakness Weather Forecast

2014 Preakness Stakes weather odds horse racing

BALTIMORE, MD (The Spread) - Following a rain-soaked Friday in the Baltimore, Maryland area, the 2014 Preakness Stakes is scheduled to see good weather.

Steady rain hit Maryland around midnight on Friday and torrential storms were scheduled to hit the area throughout the day and leading up to Saturday's race at Pimlico. But according to Accuweather.com, it looks like rain-free weather is forecasted today and the Preakness' track will be unaffected by the conditions.

Two inches of rain did soak the area on Friday, which should have caught the attention of bettors. Rain and wind can have an adverse affect on horse racing and had a storm hit Maryland ahead of today's Preakness, then the field could have been leveled due to a muddy track. But as things stand now, the dirt should be dry and the track should run fast.

With post time set for 6:20PM ET today, the forecasted weather is 67 degrees and partly cloudy. While wind could still be a factor, the race should play true and thus, the odds for today's race are unlikely to be affected.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, California Chrome remains the favorite to win today's Preakness at 5/9 odds. He's coming off a win at the Kentucky Derby and has now won five straight starts. Social Inclusion has the next-best odds at 13/2, while Bayern is 12/1.
