Preakness talk...

So, it's less than 2 weeks until the Preakness. Even though I don't believe we have a chance to have a triple crown winner this year, it's still going to be a very interesting race. The field is not set yet, but there are several who have expressed intentions to enter.

Figured I would start this now, @aubie , hope you don't mind me doing it first.

Country House will likely be heading to the Preakness, same for Code of Honor, War of Will, Bodexpress. Improbable is a definite entry. Also 3 new names not in the Derby are likely... Laughing Fox, Alwaysmining, and Anothertwistafate. Sueno, Signalman, Owendale, Mr. Money and Bourbon War are also looking at the Preakness.

Having no clear favorite, no one standout, I think will encourage more people to enter and seek a win or top 3 finish. It's going to be an interesting race.

Maximum Security is a definite no for the Preakness, which I completely understand. Looking forward to seeing him race in the future though.

Bourbon War looks intriguing at this point. I like Improbable, but think Game Winner would be the better of the Bafferts to send. Seems like he is well suited for this one.

Looks like Country House is out of the Preakness.

Sorry he is sick and hope he is better soon. Big picture, aside from possible triple crown implications, it's ok. Should be ready for the Belmont which thinking should be more to his liking.

Sorry to hear Country House is not doing well after the Derby. Sounds like Code of Honor is off the Preakness trail too. Still going to be an interesting field, especially some of the horses coming in that weren't in the Derby.

I still have not watched the Derby because of what occurred and all the various opinions after. Although from what I've read and heard, while it was a heartbreaking result, the call was sound. It is unfortunate that Country House will not run in the Preakness (good call though if he is not acting 100%), but sounds like it will still be a good race to watch. Onward and upward ... hope to see both Country House & Maximum Security in the Belmont ...

The conspiracy theorists are at it again... I'm beginning to despise the comment section at Horse Racing Nation.

It's bad enough when the general public spouts of nonsense, but when racing people start it's really frustrating.

I noticed Bloodhorse disabled comments on some articles. Wise. One in particular about a certain individual tweeted stupidity and said it was because of political correctness. Absurd.
