Baker's Dozen Expected for Preakness

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Pimlico we go for the second leg of the Triple Crown, the 135th Preakness Stakes, in which Super Saver, the Kentucky Derby winner, will face another large field, though the complexion of the race has changed dramatically from the lineup at Churchill Downs, both in terms of horses and the likely pace.

Of the 20 horses who ran in the 1 1/4-mile Derby, only five, including Super Saver, are returning for the 1 3/16-mile Preakness, so the remainder of the field is made up of eight horses who skipped or could not get into the Derby.
