  • Preakness Wrap Up: And Away We Go...Again.

    Justify Goes Out Early for Final Preakness Gallop

    Justify went out for his final pre-Preakness Stakes (G1) gallop in the dark May 18 at Pimlico Race Course, about three hours earlier than he hit the track the day prior, and Bob Baffert had a simple explanation as to why he changed things up.

  • Strategy Could Play a Big Part in the Preakness

    Slop or no slop, the Preakness Stakes looks pretty cut-and-dried on paper, or perhaps it should be cut-and-wet. The likely sloppy track will be nothing new to Justify and Good Magic, the two standout horses who dominate the morning line odds.
