Checkout what the Horse Racing Predictions Experts have to say about Big Brown:

“I've listed as many pros as I have cons but in all honesty it'll probably take an act of God or a freakish incident for him to get beat,” stated Preakness Favorites Expert Anthony Stabile of “He'll control the early action and should prove to be too much to handle in the lane. I hate chalk but I can't pick anyone else. The pick to win Preakness 133, I'm using him on top in all my plays and multi-race wagers.”

“Big Brown, 1-2, will break from post 7, which has produced five winners in the past 19 years,” stated Horse Racing Expert Greg Melikov of “He’s 13 slots closer toward the rail than he was in the Derby. Naturally, undefeated Big Brown holds the upper hand off his impressive Derby triumph. He has taken it easy, jogging over an off track at Churchill Downs several times because of wet weather.” has posted their 2008 Preakness Favorites and Contenders Odds:
