Red Route One Preakness Prediction and Pick

Although Red Route One doesn't have the best odds, he's a pick worth considering. He's finished second or better in nearly half of his career races, proving that he's a threat whenever he steps onto a track. If Rosario winds up being his jockey again, Red Route One will be in an even better position to be victorious.

It might be a long shot, but Red Route One is in a good spot to create some waves.
