Get all your official information regarding today’s 141st Preakness Stakes at this Web site. Good luck to all of the horses and jockeys racing later today. I am pulling for Kentucky Derby winner, Nyquist, to take the second jewel of the Triple Crown and continue his march towards horse racing immortality by winning the blanket of Black-Eyed Susans. 🙂
Sadly, there has already been a couple of tragedies today at Pimlico with two horses, Homeboykris and Pramedya, dying. Pramedya had to be euthanized on the track following a spill in the fourth race that injured jockey, Daniel Centeno. Homeboykris died suddenly following his victory in the first race of the day. My condolences go out to the connections of these fine animals and I wish a speedy recovery to Mr. Centeno.
