Improbable (fourth in the Kentucky Derby) leads the list for trainer Bob Baffert at +250 (wager $1.00 to win $2.50), which appears to be a very short price despite the colt's talent and Baffert's penchant for winning this race - something he's done 7 times to date. With the tight turns at Pimlico Race track and Derby participants returning on just two weeks rest, the familiar Preakness variables confront some of the better-known horses on the list above.
