With about 75 minutes to the post for the 130th running of the Preakness Stakes (gr. I), Afleet Alex is the solid 5-2 favorite, with about $750,000 in the win pool.

Post time for the race is roughly 6:10 p.m.

Afleet Alex, third in the the Kentucky Derby (gr. I), is the expected favorite, but Derby winner Giacomo, who is the fourth choice in the morning line, is the second choice at 5-1.

High Fly and Closing Argument are both 7-1, and Scrappy T is a surprising fifth choice at 10-1.
