Expert Picks: Who Will Win the 2023 Preakness Stakes?

Follow our live updates from the 2023 Preakness Stakes.

Mage, ridden by Javier Castellano, executed a frantic stretch run to capture an unpredictable Kentucky Derby that saw five contenders, including the favorite, scratched ahead of the race.

Now, in only his fifth race, Mage moves on to Baltimore and the 148th Preakness Stakes, where he will be a Triple Crown contender and the only Derby horse in what is considered a weak field. First Mission, considered to be his biggest challenger, was scratched on Friday morning with a left hind ankle injury.

Below, the Preakness horses are listed in order of post position, with comments by Joe Drape and Melissa Hoppert of The New York Times. The morning-line odds, set by Keith Feustle of Pimlico Race Course, were revised to reflect the scratch.

How to watch: Coverage on Saturday begins on CNBC at 1 p.m. Eastern time and moves to NBC at 4:30 p.m. Coverage will also be streamed on Peacock, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.
