Seize The Grey won the 149th Preakness Stakes on Saturday.

The original favorite in Muth, trained by the controversial Bob Baffert, was scratched earlier this week due to spiking a fever. That led to Kentucky Derby winner, Mystik Dan, becoming the favorite in his quest to be the first Triple Crown winner since Justify back in 2018.

Mystik Dan made a move late, but finished second.


Muth opened as the 8-5 favorite, ahead of Mystik Dan at 5-2. Baffert said the horse was ruled out after reaching a temperature of 103 degrees Fahrenheit roughly 12 hours after arriving at the racecourse.

As a matter of fact, it was unknown for a bit if Mystik Dan would run following his Kentucky Derby victory, but ownership decided he was good to go.

Baffert was at Pimlico after missing his third-straight Kentucky Derby due to suspension – he is slated to be back at Churchill Downs in 2025. His National Treasure won last year’s Preakness.
