War of Will had the second-best odds going into the race at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
Country House, the horse that won the Kentucky Derby after Maximum Security was disqualified, pulled out of the second leg of the Triple Crown because of a cough. Maximum Security did not run the race.
Here are the payout results from the 144th running of the Preakness Stakes.
War of Will $14.20 $7.40 $5.40
Everfast $32.00 $14.40
$2 Exacta: 1-10 ($947.00), $1 Trifecta 1-10-5 ($4,699.80), $1 Superfecta 1-10-5-3 ($51,924.00)
