The Triple Crown has reached its next stop. After the 150th Kentucky Derby, horse racing heads to Maryland for the 149th Preakness Stakes. This is the second race in the Triple Crown, with the third being the Belmont Stakes. The 2024 Preakness Stakes is held at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

Mystik Dan opened as the morning line favorite at 5-2. Mystik Dan ran a magical race at Churchill Downs, narrowly beating Sierra Leone to win the 2024 Kentucky Derby. No horse has won the Triple Crown since 2018’s Justify. Mystik Dan’s toughest competition will be Catching Freedom and Imagination, both at 6-1.

3 underrated action movies on Amazon Freevee you should watch in June 2024
Betty Gilpin in The Hunt.

Now that Amazon Prime Video is running ads on its shows and movies, the future of Freevee is a little unclear. While watching movies for free is always enticing, Freevee favors quantity over quality. And the vast majority of films on Freevee are less than stellar efforts that would be direct-to-video if that was still a viable release option.

Regardless, you can still find some good or even great movies on Freevee if you scroll down far enough. We've even managed to find three underrated action movies on Freevee that we haven't recommended before. Since the selection of good movies on Freevee is so slim, that's getting harder and harder to do. So enjoy these action flicks while you can. It's anyone's guess if they will still be on Freevee beyond June.

Where to watch the 2024 Belmont Stakes live stream
Justify the horse races down the track at the Belmont Stakes.

The final leg of the Triple Crown will take place Saturday at the 2024 Belmont Stakes. Known as "The Test of the Champion," the Belmont Stakes is typically held at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Due to construction at Belmont, the 156th running of the Belmont Stakes will be in upstate New York at Saratoga Race Course.

Ten horses are running in the Belmont Stakes, including 2024 Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan and 2024 Preakness Stakes winner Seize the Grey. With Seize the Grey's win over Mystik Dan at the Preakness, there will be no Triple Crown winner in 2024. Seize the Grey, Mystik Dan, Sierra Leone, and Mindframe should be in contention to win the Belmont.

Aerial shot of Roland Garros at the French Open.

The 2024 French Open concludes this weekend with the women's and men's finals. No. 1 Iga Swiatek faces No. 12 Jasmine Paolini on the women's side, while No. 3 Carlos Alcaraz plays No. 4 Alexander Zverev in the men's final. Both finals will be contested at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France.

If Swiatek defeats Paolini, it will be her third consecutive French Open title. However, Paolini will attempt to be the ultimate underdog and capture her first career Grand Slam. On the men's side, Alcaraz is looking to capture his third Grand Slam before he turns 22. But beating Zverev will be a tall task as the German attempts to win his first major championship.
