The current odds of Lookin At Lee winning the 2017 Preakness Stakes were set at 13-1.
Lookin At Lee was the 2nd place finisher at this year’s Kentucky Derby.
Lookin At Lee hasn’t won a race since last August but has finished in the money in seven of 10 career races.
“His personality and gamesmanship are what gave us confidence in him going into the Derby,” trainer Steve Asmussen said. “You have no control over how the other horses run, but you always feel Lookin At Lee is going to do his best.”
Even Derby winner and Preakness favorite Always Dreaming trainer Todd Pletcher had praise for Lookin At Lee.
“I think he’s a very good horse,” Pletcher said of Lookin At Lee. “He ran a terrific race in the Kentucky Derby. We were fortunate to win. I thought he ran a very good second, so that makes him certainly a horse you have to keep your eye on for this race.”
