Preakness News: Bodemeister in, Daddy Nose Best possible

137 preakness

Monday brought significant developments regarding the Preakness field. While trainer Bob Baffert confirmed Bodemeister for Saturday's middle jewel of the Triple Crown, he ruled out Liaison. Hansen, Hierro and Isn't He Clever all likewise passed on a trip to Pimlico. But Daddy Nose Best entered Preakness calculations for Steve Asmussen.

 

Baffert got his first look at Kentucky Derby runner-up Bodemeister since the morning after the "Run for the Roses" Monday at Churchill Downs and liked what he saw from the colt's 1 1/2-mile gallop around a muddy oval.

 

"He looks good, his coat is good and he is eating well," Baffert said after the colt completed his activity under exercise rider George Alvarez. "I see no reason not to take him (to Baltimore)."

 

Owned by Zayat Stables, LLC and Michel and Tiffany Moreno, Bodemeister ran some of the fastest fractions in the 138-year history of the Kentucky Derby and did not surrender the lead to I'll Have Another until just before the sixteenth-pole.
