Preakness today!

Lucky thirteen. That’s the head count at the post – unless there is a scratch.

There will be no chance of a triple crown this year as Country House bowed out and the contested first finisher, Maximum Security, withdrew as well. Often trainers don’t want to push their horses if they don’t like the odds – too many other races for the risk.

So with the field wide open it could be anyone’s race. Who is it going to be?
The favorite Baffert’s “Improbable”?
War of Will?
Or your favorite longshot?

If you need a little luck pick up some from the gift shop where a hardback book of “the Black Stallion” is on sale at 50% off!! and that includes the combo with a Bucephalus figurine!

The race will be broadcast on NBC with post time for the race set at 6:48 p.m. ET.

    1. War of Will (4/1)
    2. Bourbon War (12/1)
    3. Warrior’s Charge (12/1)

    5. Owendale (10/1)
    6. Market King (30/1)
    7. Alwaysmining (8/1)
    8. Signalman (30/1)
    9. Bodexpress (20/1)
    10. Everfast (50/1)
