(The Spread) – Animal Kingdom will attempt to claim the second leg of the Triple Crown this evening at the 2011 running of the Preakness Stakes.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com currently list Animal Kingdom as a +200 money line favorite. Dialed In, who was favored to win the Kentucky Derby earlier this month, is +500 on the money line, while Mucho Macho Man is +600. (Mucho Macho Man finished third at the Kentucky Derby.)
When the opening odds were released a day after the Kentucky Derby, both Animal Kingdom and Dialed In were favored at +400. But after he won at Churchill Downs, it was clear that Animal Kingdom would be the lone favorite for the 2011 Preakness.
