15 Horses Targeting Preakness

Pimlico officials reported May 9 there was a possiblility that the 14-horse field for the May 15 Preakness (gr. I) would be oversubscribed because the connections of 15 3-year-olds are considering entering their runners in the second leg of the Triple Crown.  If all 15 are entered May 12, First Dude would be the horse excluded from the field.


The starters will be determined in a three-tier process. The first seven horses with the highest lifetime earnings in graded stakes will be given preference. The next four starters will be determined by the highest lifetime earnings in all “non-restricted stakes,” which means those stakes whose conditions contain no restrictions other than age or sex. The remaining three starters will be determined by the highest lifetime earnings in all races.

Often less than stellar horses win race because the pace set up or track preference favors them Bee Bee Bee Alom;a`s Ruler, Tanks Prospect....the list is long including Summer Squall and Snow Chief...SPEEDBALLS who went out on a track that favored them.
I don't care who wins as long as it is either super saver, lookin at lucky, conveyance, jackson bend, or dublin. i know this sounds wierd but i hate when crappy horses win prestigious races. i don't want a horse who has raced 8 or so times and has won twice. actually it doesn't have to be a great horse but if it isn't i want it to have a good pedigree or to be trained buy a top trainer. i hate when crappy horses like mine that bird trained by a no body of a trainer chip woolly comes and win a race that should be won by a trainer who races at a real track. and by a real track i mean: if it isn't in Kentucky, Florida, new york, Illinois, California, and i guess Arkansas (oaklawn) or Louisiana (fairgrounds ) your not racing at a real track.

I do not see much of a pace in this race - in fact, because of that I don't see this as a good race setup for Super Saver. Saver may be the one who has to set the pace - otherwise he would be "pressing" a rather slow pace. I see a race with a lack of pace to benefit horses like Hurricane Ike, Paddy O'Prado and Caracortado.
Makes it a lot tougher on Super Saver.... big field, hotter pace, more trouble... will have to get lucky at the post draw!
