The U.S. Triple Crown Series this year is taking a unique edition as it gets postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Instead of getting accomplished last May, the series started last June via Belmont Stakes. The races got interchanged, which means the Belmont Stakes was the first leg and followed by the Kentucky Derby this September.
Closing the Triple Crown show this season is the Preakness Stakes. Instead of the usual middle jewel, this will conclude and determine a deserving Triple Crown winner. The Preakness Stakes will settle on October 3, 2020, at Pimlico Park, still carrying the shortest racecourse compared to Belmont Stakes and the Derby.
As we look forward to the Preakness Stakes this year, the event becomes exciting because Derby and Belmont finishers will surely participate. Therefore, as the fans and bettors anticipate for a more intense Preakness race, here are the most powerful colts to look out for in the 2020 Preakness Stakes odds.
Tiz The Law
This colt should not be disregarded by all means as he can slay the Triple Crown this year without any hitch. He dazzled during the Belmont Stakes showing an impressive performance that led him to win the title.
Aside from that, he is preparing to run in the Derby as well as the Preakness Stakes. He is a Belmont Stakes finisher and a winner in many notable prep-races, including the Florida Derby. Besides, he was a defending champion for the Holy Bull Stakes and Champagne Stakes.
Earning a sure spot in the upcoming Kentucky Derby, Modernist needs an eye for the Preakness Stakes. William I. Mott sent him during the Belmont Stakes and did not disappoint. Besides, he ended well in the Run For The Carnations and took home seventh place.
Moreover, he has completed six horse racing tournaments since birth. Last March 21, 2020, he participated at the Louisiana Derby, where he finished in third place. Apart from that, he is the current title holder for the Risen Star Stakes last February 15, 2020. It is why Modernist should not be underrated in the upcoming Preakness Stakes.
Man In The Can
Man In The Can is a new bidder for the Triple Crown Series this year, including the Preakness Stakes. Although he was not one of the racehorses who jousted for the Belmont Stakes, he had been working in some notable races that made him a vigorous colt to look forward to in the Run For The Black-Eyed Susans.
This colt had done an excellent job during the Arkansas Breeders’ Championship Stakes, where he won the title. Aside from that, he competed during the Rainbow Stakes, where he won first place. Last July 11, 2020, he contended at the Blue Grass Stakes and settled at 13th place.
Sole Volante has expressed his desire earlier this year for the Triple Crown Series. Before taking a journey in the said tournament, Sole Volante was a superstar in many stakes races. He is the Pulpit Stakes and Sam F. Davis Stakes winner. Apart from that, he has significant placements, including 3rd place in Mucho Macho Man Stakes and 2nd place in Tampa Bay Derby.
Last June, he started his Triple Crown story by finishing 6th place in the Belmont Stakes. He will head on to the Kentucky Derby this September and Preakness Stakes by October. Given his horse racing achievements, Sole Volante is ultimately one of the most reliable horses to observe in the Black-Eyed Susans.

Completing the list of the mightiest horses to observe in the upcoming Preakness Stakes is King Guillermo. This colt missed running in the Belmont Stakes but will vie for the Derby and Preakness. Last November 2019, King Guillermo contended during the Pulpit Stakes and brought home third place.
This year, he competed in several Derby-prep races, including a title he won in the Tampa Bay Derby last March 7, 2020. Also, on May 2, 2020, ran in the Arkansas Derby and garnered second place.
