Henry Q Horse Trainer and Jockey

Henry Q is trained by Todd Fincher, who continues to gain recognition in the industry after sweeping the four stakes at Sunland Park in late February. He took over the reins on Henry Q from Doug O'Neill following the horses' first three races of the year.

Henry Q's jockey for the 2023 Preakness is Lanfranco Dettori. The 52-year-old is set to retire after this horse racing season, which only adds to the anticipation of his appearance at the Preakness.

Henry Q Preakness Prediction and Pick

Henry Q may be tied for the fourth-best odds to win the Preakness, but he remains an overlooked horse in a field full of recognizable names. The colt has done nothing but impress in 2023, though, logging a pair of outright wins as well as three top-four finishes. It's worth mentioning here that Henry Q enters with a veteran jockey on his back and an up-and-coming trainer with him in preparation. That gives him a shot to turn some heads on Saturday. Henry Q has not taken a noticeable step back in his results despite seeing the level of his competitors rise, giving him upside as a contender here.
