Kentucky Derby winner Authentic will try to win the final leg of the 2020 Triple Crown when he leaves the starting gate on Saturday in the 2020 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Md. Authentic is the 9-5 morning-line favorite, and post time for the race is 5:36 p.m. ET.
Before making any 2020 Preakness Stakes picks, you NEED to see how handicapping champion Tony Russo has broken down the race.
Russo is one of the nation’s most successful and recognizable horseplayers. Russo was the winner of the National Horseplayers Championship, a demanding, yearlong series of handicapping events across the country.
In addition, Russo has scored huge on some of racing’s biggest days. At the 2015 Kentucky Derby, he cashed for $150,000 after nailing a Pick 6 and a cold Pick 3 that paid $50,000.
He’s currently riding a hot streak on his horse racing picks for The Gamblers Report. On April 11, he crushed the Oaklawn Stakes, giving out a $5 exacta that paid a whopping $1,338. On May 27 he hit a $1.50 Pick 4 at Tampa Bay Downs that paid $1,227. On July 11 he nailed both the Ashland Stakes, for $500, and the late Pick 5 at Keeneland, for $721.70.
Those are just some of his biggest hits this year.
Anyone who has followed him is up big.
Now, Russo has handicapped the 2020 Preakness Stakes field and has made his picks!
