"We're planning on going," said Proud Citizen's trainer D. Wayne Lukas. The Hall of Famer is also sending Table Limit to the Preakness.
Also headed to Baltimore is Booklet, a front-runner like War Emblem. Trained by John Ward, Booklet was second behind Harlan's Holiday in the Blue Grass, but does own two wins over him -- in the Holy Bull (gr. III) and the Fountain of Youth (gr. I). Also planning to run are several colts who had not earned enough money to make the Derby field -- Sunday Break, Crimson Hero, Straight Gin and U S S Tinosa. In addition, Easyfromthegitgo, Equality, Magic Weisner, Marasca and Stephentown are being be pointed to the Preakness.
Saarland, 10th in the Derby, suffered a bone chip in the race and was expected to have surgery. The last full field in the Preakness was 1992.
