Triple Crown Odds: Medina Spirit Given 11/4 Odds To Win The Triple Crown
Medina Spirit's Triple Crown Odds
This Saturday sees the Preakness Stakes and all eyes are on Medina Spirit. Medina Spirit won the Kentucky Derby but has since been embroiled in controversy since the horse failed a drug test. A series of bizarre excuses appeared before trainer Bob Baffert changed his story to one involved a misused ointment that contained steroids.
Saturday's race is still ahead of us yet Medina Spirit is already as short as 11/4 (+275) to win the Triple Crown.
Saturday's Preakness Stakes takes place at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. It's one of the world's most famous flat races and the second leg in the famous Triple Crown.
When Medina Spirit won the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago it gave bettors and enthusiasts hope that we could see the first Triple Crown winner since 2018. Interestingly Medina Spirit's trainer Bob Baffert also trained the previous two winners, Justify in 2018 and American Pharoah in 2015.
Medina Spirt is 2/1 to win Saturday's Preakness Stakes and then just 11/4 to win the Triple Crown. That implies a 26.7% chance that Medina Spirit manages to win the Triple Crown.
