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)
    4. Improbable (5/2)
    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)
    11. Laughing Fox (20/1)
    12. Anothertwistafate (6/1)
    13. Win Win Win (15/1)

Thanks for reading … and writing!

Derby Day 2019!!

It’s that day in May we wait for every year.

It’s gonna rain … and that means another year with a muddy track.

Who’s gonna take the Roses??

Since Omaha Beach, the early favorite, has been scratched due to surgery it’s a wide open field.

Baffert has three so it may be Game Winner.

Or is it Roadster? Coming out of the 17th chute, never won, post position??

Or …. your favorite long shot??

You gotta play to win – and if you need a little luck don’t forget to pick up a Bucephalus to keep in your pocket!

Roadster 5-1
Maximum Security 8-1

Will Exaggerator do it again? I like Desormeaux and their horse (did you know the Black Stallion is Kent Desormeaux’s favorite!) I like Cherry Wine … doesn’t that sound good. And I like the idea of Suddenbreakingnews.

Get yourself a little luck with a Bucephalus of your own … Alexander the Great let him sleep in his tent and you can keep him on your bedside table:)

See you at the races!
