Two weeks after the Kentucky Derby has been run at Churchill Downs, many of US horse racing's best three-year-olds will clash again in the Preakness Stakes. The Preakness Stakes is the middle leg of the US Triple Crown, and many of the runners who impressed at Churchill Downs will take their chance this weekend.

Let's take a look through the latest Preakness Stakes betting and run through the headline entries.

Just when Epicentre looked to have seen off Zandon in the Kentucky Derby, 80/1 outsider Rich Strike powered his way through the field and pipped the long-time leader to the post. With no Rich Strike or Zandon in the field against him on Saturday, the bookies make Epicentre their short-priced favourite to win the 2022 Preakness Stakes.

Impressive Kentucky Oaks winner, Secret Oath could take on the colts again and D Wayne Lukas' filly can also be backed at a fairly short price. Wood Memorial Stakes runner-up, Early Voting also sits prominently in the Preakness Stakes betting. 

Simplification stayed on well to place fourth in the Kentucky Derby and he will enter his second Classic of the season. Kenny McPeak's Creative Minister bolted up in a claimer during the Kentucky Derby Festival and he'll step up to Grade One company this weekend.

Just nine runners will contest this Saturday's Preakness Stakes. Fenwick, Happy Jack, Armagnac and Skippylongstocking complete the field for this weekend's Classic feature.
