The Preakness Stakes

The second jewel of the Triple Crown is this Saturday and it is a really small field this year with only 8 horses running. The odds on favorite is American Pharoah who won the Derby two weeks ago as broadcasters were already claiming it was going to win the Triple Crown before the Kentucky Derby. American Pharoah will face off against the other place-getters in the Derby along with two other which ran in the Derby one that was scratched at the Derby and two horses which didn’t run two weeks ago.  So it looks like an exciting race, post time for the Preakness is scheduled for 6:18 pm on Saturday so we will see what all happens. I still am holding out hope for a Triple Crown in my lifetime. In years past it has been close, but never worked out in the end.
