Justify draws Post Position 7 with Morning Line set at 1 / 2. Only three times since 1917 has a favorite been beaten at lower odds than 1/2. The last time the Preakness favorite went off at lower odds than 1/2 was in 2008, when Big Brown won at 1/5. Justify and Good Magic, Morning Line at 3 /1, are the only horses in the field of 8 with Morning Line odds less than 12-1. Cloud Computing trained by Chad Brown won the Preakness last year at 13/1. The 2017 Preakness favorite Always Dreaming at 2/1 finished 8th. Can Chad Brown trained Good Magic beat the favorite again in the 2018 Preakness?
