Fenwick is no longer Preakness’ biggest long shot.

The odds for the Triple Crown’s middle gem, updated less than four hours before post time, put Fenwick down 7-1. He started 50-1 at the Morning Line.

Fenwick could be a popular underdog option for bookies after Rich Strike won the Kentucky Derby 80-1. Rich is not in strike predicament when his boss decided he needed more rest to prepare for the Belmont Stakes on June 11.

There’s also an emotional story behind the Fenwick, which was named after the mother of owner Jeremiah Ruden, who died when she was 19. Fenwick is running for trainer Kevin McCathn, who lost his brother to a heart attack three years ago.

Fenwick started the week as the longest shot on the board, largely due to his 11th place finish in his most recent race on April 9. He was also bought as a one-year-old for the nominal amount of $52,000 and was not sold as a 2-year-old. ,

Epicenter, who was second in the Derby to Rich Strike, remains the favorite at 9-5. Philly Secret Oath leads 9-2, followed by Early Voting and Fenwick 7-1, Simplification and Happy Jacks 8-1, Creative Minister and Skippylongstocking 9-1 and Armagnac at 18-1.
