Today’s twelth race (5/18) at Pimlico is the Gr. I $1,000,000 Preakness Stakes.  This race will consist of three year olds running a mile and three-sixteenths over the dirt track.

Track: Fast

#1-Orb (1-1): It is no surprise here who my top pick is.  After watching Orb’s last two races it is apparent this horse has that push-button acceleration some can only dream of.  The Malibu Moon colt is on a five race win streak and with his recent work it looks like he is the one to beat yet again.  Joel Rosario will be back aboard Orb today.

#6-Oxbow (15-1): The famed trainer D Wayne Lukas is sending out three horses today and I think Oxbow has the best chance of the group.  With this being the shortest leg of the Triple Crown race I believe the distance should suite him.  In the Derby the Awesome Again horse was close throughout most of the race but ended up finishing nine lengths back in sixth place.  Gary Stevens will take the irons.

#4-Departing (6-1): Is one of three horses in this field that did not participate in the Derby.  Last time out the War Front colt won the Gr. III Illinois Derby back at Hawthorne on April 20th.  The Albert Stall trainee has never finished off the board in five career starts and should be a player in this race for sure.  Brian Hernandez Jr. will be in the saddle today.

#5-Myute (5-1): The Midnight Lute horse has improved his speed figures steadily since his return off a layoff three starts ago.  The roan horse finished a close fifth in the Derby as he only lost by three lengths.  In ten career starts Mylute has two wins, three seconds, and two thirds.  Rosie Napravnik will get the jump on the Thomas Amoss trainee today.
