Astrology Preakness Updated Odds
(The Spread) – One of the potential sleepers to win the 2011 Preakness today is Astrology, who now has 15/1 odds.
Astrology opened at 10/1 to win the Preakness, but after oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com started adjusting their lines, he fell into the midrange long shot category. As previously mentioned, now Astrology is 15/1 to win Saturday’s race.
The 3-year-old colt comes into the 2011 Preakness with seven career races under his belt. Of those seven, he has two wins, three second place finishes and two third place finishes. Thus, in his seven career races, he has never finished off the board.
He placed second at the Grade 2 Jerome Hcp on April 23 at Aqueduct, second at the Grade 3 Sunland Derby on March 27 and second at the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club at Churchill Downs in November last year. His two career wins came at Saratoga in September and on the 1-mile track at Churchill Downs at the Grade 3 Iroquis in October.
Astrology is part of the Stonestreet Stables and George Bolton ownership. He’s trained by Steve Asmussen and will be ridden by jockey Mike Smith when he takes his position this evening at Pilimco Race Course. He’ll have the rail position.
