Mugatu Preakness Stakes Prediction and Pick

Mugatu's average Speed Score is just 72.3, well off the field average (86.2). However, the last three Speed Score figures average 92.0, closer to the field average (96.9), as horses are generally trending up entering the big race.

However, Mugatu is still a long shot, and it's hard to argue with that assessment.
