2013 Preakness odds: Orb remains heavy favorite entering race day

Andy Lyons

Race day is here, and the Kentucky Derby winner is still a strong favorite to win the Preakness Stakes. Here are the full odds for the field.

Orb has been the favorite to win the Preakness Stakes ever since he won the Kentucky Derby, and things are no different the morning of the race. Orb is coming off at even money, far ahead of any of the other contenders in the nine horse field.

Mylute remains the horse with the next-best odds at 5/1, with Departing and Goldencents close behind at 6/1 and 8/1, respectively. The longest shot in the field remains Titletown Five, who is at 30/1 odds to take home the win on Saturday.

Post time at Pimlico is set for 6:20 p.m. ET, and the race can be seen on NBC. The weather in Baltimore should be better than it was in Kentucky, with only clouds expected in the afternoon. Here are the full odds for the field:

Orb - Even
Mylute - 5/1
Departing - 6/1
Goldencents - 8/1
Itsmyluckyday - 10/1
Will Take Charge - 12/1
Govenor Charlie - 12/1
Oxbow - 15/1
Titletown Five - 30/1
