2022 Preakness Stakes odds, predictions, lineup: Horse racing expert who called Medina Spirit reveals picks

The 2022 Preakness Stakes promises plenty of excitement for horse racing fans everywhere. An American thoroughbred horse race, the Preakness Stakes 2022 is will take place on Saturday, May 21 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. The 2022 Preakness Stakes field will run from the starting gates at 6:45 p.m. ET. The Preakness 2022 is run at 1 3/16 miles or 9.5 furlongs, making it the shortest of the Triple Crown horse races. There won’t be a Triple Crown winner in 2022 after Rich Strike, the upset Kentucky Derby winner at 80-1, withdrew from the 2022 Preakness Stakes lineup. Given the shocking results of the Kentucky Derby, you’ll want to see what astute racing reporter and analyst Michelle Yu has to say before making any 2022 Preakness Stakes picks.

Few people in racing are as connected as Yu. An on-air host and reporter who has provided racing analysis for TVG, HRTV and the Breeders’ Cup, Yu has spent a lifetime in racing. Prior to her television career, she worked for trainers Steve Asmussen and Ron Moquett. She also is married to Santa Anita-based trainer Ryan Hanson.

She also has tremendous handicapping chops. In the 2011 Kentucky Derby, she correctly tabbed Animal Kingdom to win at a hefty 21-1. In the 2017 Breeders’ Cup, she nailed 11-1 long shot Wuheida to win the Filly and Mare Turf. Last year, in a wide-open Kentucky Derby, she gave out Medina Spirit, who crossed the finish line first, as the winner at 12-1. And in Pool 5 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager this year, she suggested a play on All Other 3-Year-Olds, which cashed at 18-1 when Rich Strike won the Derby.

Since joining SportsLine in November, her picks have cashed in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, Sham Stakes, El Camino Real Derby, San Felipe Stakes, Santa Anita Handicap and Kentucky Oaks. Anyone who has followed her is way up.

Now, Yu has handicapped the 2022 Preakness Stakes field, made her picks and constructed her bets. Go to SportsLine to see them.

Top 2022 Preakness Stakes predictions

One surprise: Yu is fading Simplification, even though he is one of the 2022 Preakness Stakes favorites at 8-1 after his fourth place finish in the Kentucky Derby. It has been over two months since Simplification last won a race, the Fountain of Youth in early March. Since then, the colt finished third in the Florida Derby and fourth in the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Simplification has yet to win a race outside the state of Florida.

“He may become the wise-guy horse, and he can hit the board again, but I won’t spend the money to stick him in the top two spots,” Yu told SportsLine.
