Great action at Pimlico

It was a fine running of horses there at Pimico. If I could had my first three in the right order.  I just watched the replay from the overhead cam. "I'll have another", exploded in the last 1/8 like it was outfitted with Nitro.

from Daily Racing Form

Just like he did in the Kentucky Derby, I'll Have Another ran down Bodemeister in the late stages of Saturday’s $1 million Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and is now in position to become the first horse since Affirmed to sweep the Triple Crown should he win the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park on June 9.

I'LL HAVE ANOTHER Gutierrez M $8.40 $3.80 $2.80
BODEMEISTER Smith M.   $3.20 $2.80
CREATIVE CAUSE Rosario J.     $3.60 

Race day

    The running of the Preakness and NASCAR's  "All Star" race from Charlotte.  A day packed with left turns. While Kurt Busch continues squaring off with Ryan Newman. Kyle Busch take the pole at the "All Star". Tonight on SPEED channel 9pm E.S.T.  As Big Jim said, (in another forum) It's "Bring home the steering wheel, take no prisoners, it's wreckers or checkers".  This no points race should be interesting.
   The 137th running of the Preakness at Pimilco set for today. With "Tiger Walk" (by Tale of the Cat) in Gate #1, with a Jockey change after Kent Desormeaux failed a breathalyzer test.over a incident at Belmont on Friday. The long shot "Tiger Walk" will be rode by Ramon Dominguez. Dust off the big hats get your endless mug and head to the infield. At the current time "Bodemeister" is still the favorite to win and has track odds of 8 to 5.

 Morning exercise

and the winner is
