Early betting on Saturday’s 146th running of the Grade 1 Preakness Stakes demonstrates a bit of skepticism on bettors’ parts towards Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit.

On the other hand, there’s plenty of love towards stablemate Concert Tour and Derby sixth-place finisher Midnight Bourbon.

As of 6:15 p.m. Friday, the odds look like this:

  1. Ram (ML 30-1/Live odds 12-1)
  2. Keepmeinmind (15-1/10-1)
  3. Medina Spirit (9-5/3-1)
  4. Crowded Trade (10-1/7-1)
  5. Midnight Bourbon (5-1/5-2)
  6. Rombauer (12-1/11-1)
  7. France Go de Ina (15-1/18-1)
  8. Unbridled Honor (15-1/13-1)
  9. Risk Taking (15-1/16-1)
  10. Concert Tour (5-2/4-1)

If the Black-Eyed Susan/Preakness double will-pays translate to final Preakness odds, the list will look like this:

  1. Midnight Bourbon
  2. Concert Tour
  3. Medina Spirit
  4. Crowded Trade
  5. Rombauer
  6. Risk Taking
  7. Keepmeinmind
  8. Unbridled Honor
  9. France Go de Ina
  10. Ram
