Onward to Pimlico

And so we go on to the second crown in the jewel. Here's what I think a little more than a week out for the Preakness Stakes:
  • If Rachel Alexandra enters she's either the favorite or second choice.
  • Pioneerof the Nile will be favored.
  • The top three finishers are likely to be from the Derby field.
  • Mine That Bird either stakes his claim as a super horse or goes the route of Lil E. Tee. I didn't have him in the Derby, and I'll take a stand against in the Preakness.
  • Big Drama poses the biggest "outsider" chance...besides the filly.
I'm feeling Papa Clem right now, but it's far too early and interesting to start handicapping.

  1. Tony,

    Remember back in March we'd discussed possibly predicting injury to a racehorse.

    Please take some time to check out my post...I'd love to know your ideas.
