Kentucky Derby winner Authentic is the favorite to win Saturday's Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

Typically the second race run in the Triple Crown, the Preakness will be the final leg after the schedule was altered because of the coronavirus pandemic. Tiz the Law, who is not running in the Preakness, took this year's first leg, winning the Belmont Stakes on June 20.
