Preakness Stakes Payouts & Results
The last time horse racing saw a Triple Crown winner was 2015 when American Pharoah won all three jewels. After Justify won the 2018 Preakness Stakes on Saturday, horse racing could see the feat accomplished for the second time in just three years.
For the second time, Justify was pushed by Good Magic early. The two contenders were neck-and-neck for most of the race but once the thoroughbreds hit the back stretch, Justify started to pull away. Fading somewhat near the finish line, Justify held on to win the Preakness Stakes and the second leg of the Triple Crown.
Unfortunately for anyone who had the Kentucky Derby runner-up in their tri-fecta on Saturday, Good Magic didn't even place after challenging for the lead. It was Bravazo who made a late dash to finish second, followed by the speedster Tenfold. Good Magic rounded out the Superfecta by finishing fourth.
With Justify going off at 2/5, a $2 bet only netted winners $2.80 for win, $2.80 for place and $2.60 for show. A $2 wager on Bravazo, meanwhile, paid $7.60 for place and $4.80 for show. The big winner was Tenfold at 25/1, as he paid $6.80 for a third-place showing.
Continuing with the payouts, a $2.00 Exacta of 7-8 paid $27.40 and a $1.00 Trifecta of 7-8-6 paid $148.30. Finally, a $1.00 Superfecta of 7-8-6-5 paid $372.50.
If you're looking for the rest of the race results for any matchup prop bets, the two-horse Lone Sailor finished fifth while the three horse Sporting Chance finished sixth. Diamond King finished seventh while Quip finished a disappointing eighth after some observers, myself included, believed he would turn heads at the Preakness.
