... and its on the the Preakness

Good Day,

SO who do you think goes on to run in the Preakness?

Nyquist very much the best. Horse is better then I thought.

Nyquist will probably go off 3-5 or even 2-5 in the Preakness. The horses that ran against him in the derby have no shot IMO.

Clearly it's their choice, but I wouldn't take Gun Runner to Baltimore.
Yes, he will likely get a check, but Nyquist simply sat all over him and outclassed him when the real running began.
He'll do the same thing in the Preakness.

Early Preakness probables per MD Jockey Club officials: Nyquist, Exaggerator, Collected, Laoban, Cherry Wine, Awesome Speed, Uncle Lino

Race could have some pace, Nyquist could run a huge beyer in this one. Think he is one that will run as fast as he needs to.


$100 Exacta Nyquist w/ Exagggerator - its just that simple

Probably right but I think Exaggerator will like minus half panel and won't be stuck in traffic. Has a better chance there but Preakness tends to favor horses with style up front. At least I can play dime super again but probably need a lot of dimes to make much.

I was wondering about that. I might be wrong but didn't he run a 147.4 in his last?

Does anyone else think that only horse that have earned points be allowed to run in the rest of the Triple Crown races? Just my opinion.

I think only the horses that ran in the derby should be allowed in the Preakness & Belmont, while others don't agree with me.

We would have had another 5 triple crown winners if that was the case, probably more. Horses like Birdstone coming fresh in to the Belmont after getting destroyed by Smarty Jones IMO isn't fair.

Why should any three year-old ever be banned from a three year-old race that isn't over subscribed?

Exaggerator IMO has Preakness skip and run in the Belmont written all over him. Any plan other than that for him is a mistake IMO.

He can't beat Nyquist at the Preakness distance, and I don't think the Pimlico track plays to his style.

So if you had a 3 year old that you paid $200,000 and gets a quarter crack three weeks from the Derby and you can't run him, then he's not allowed to run in either the Preakness or Belmont? Yea, that's not going to happen. Sounds like that previous sour grapes nutty owner of California Chrome. Why don't you go ahead and restrict horses from the Travers or hell, you can't run in the Derby because you didn't run in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile. Running in one race has nothing to do with running in another race.

Why is the goal to have 5 more Triple Crown winners? The fact that it is hard is exactly what makes it special.
