The 2010 Preakness Stakes betting odds: The Jockeys

The 2010 Preakness Stakes betting odds haven’t yet been finalized, but already Sports Betting is giving you a taste of the horse racing odds action that’s coming on May 15. While we have pony action all year round, you know that there’s nothing like Triple Crown betting. Can Super Saver win the second leg and set up a frenzied Belmont Stakes betting race? That remains to be seen. In the meantime, here’s a look at which jockeys have Preakness betting experience. Remember, not all of these horses have confirmed at the moment. These are the experienced jockeys who MAY be riding in the Preakness Stakes.

Calvin Borel (Super Saver odds) – He has one Preakness Stakes win under his belt, as well as a runner-up finish at the Triple Crown race. He’s one of the reasons Super Saver is a strong horse racing play.

Kent Desormeaux (Paddy O’Prado odds) – He is a two-time winner of the Preakness and is aboard a horse that had a good showing at the Kentucky Derby.

Javier Castellano (Aikenite odds) – Javier has a 2006 Preakness win under his belt, but isn’t aboard one of the field favorites this time around. Still, you have to respect a previous winner.

John Velazquez (A Little Warm odds) – John has 3 fifth place finishes in Preakness Stakes betting. He’s not expected to have a strong shot at winning, but at least the experience is there.

Mike Smith (Jackson Bend odds) – With 11 starts at the Preakness already under his belt, Smith does also have one win. He could be a big factor on May 15.

Robby Albarado (Hurricane Ike odds) – Robby has 8 starts at the Preakness Stakes, with his only win coming in 2007. You have to like experience.

Ramon Dominguez (First Dude odds) – Ramon has 7 Preakness races to his credit, with his best finish being in seventh place.

Edgar Prado (Yawanna Twist odds) – Edgar has an astounding 13 starts at the Preakness Stakes. He has finished fourth 4 times. You know he will be desperate for one more crack at the winner’s circle.

There are many more jockeys in the field, but none have the Preakness betting experience that this bunch has.
