Preakness Stakes 2019 Wagers: Country House Is Sick
Ready for your Preakness Stakes 2019 Wagers? Well, before you risk a single dollar, you should know that this will be a different race. The reason is that the winner of the 2019 Kentucky Derby won’t compete, and that means that there will be no Triple Crown winner this time. “He’s acting like he’s going to get sick. He’s off the training list, and if he’s off the training list, he’s off the Preakness list.” Country House’s trainer Bill Mott said.
Controversial Kentucky Derby Finish

Both horses are in the middle of a controversy after a bizarre Kentucky Derby finish (probably the most bizarre incident in the 145 years of the competition).

Maximum Security Disqualification Appeal Denied
Here’s another factor that’s key when it comes to Preakness Stakes 2019 wagering odds: Maximum Security is also out. Maximum Security was the actual winner at the Derby, but he was immediately disqualified because of improperly impeding several horses, leading Country House to get the victory. And so, Maximum Security’s owner Gary West announced that his horse won’t be competing at Preakness Stakes, this after the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission denied his disqualification appeal. The commission didn’t take too long to deny his request, stating that the decision is not subject to appeal. On this, West said that he was really disappointed by the KHRC’s decision, but he also mentioned that the matter is not over yet. “Based on everything that has happened so far, I’m not surprised. We’ll file suit in whatever the appropriate court is. I don’t know the answer to that, but the lawyers that I have retained will know what the appropriate venue is.” West told The Associated Press…
