Preakness Top Four Chances to Win



1. California Chrome  
Lucky Pulpit- Love the Chase by Not For Love

Plain and simple this horse is going to win the Preakness. The race is shorter than the Derby, and the speed looks to be a little bit weaker in talent than it was in the Derby. I'm not writing him off as a Triple Crown champion yet, but I have a feeling after the Preakness everyone will be writing him off as the best thing since sliced bread. Though he took the roses I won't write him off as a Triple Crown winner until he crosses the wire first at Belmont.

2. Kid Cruz 
Lemon Drop Kid- Layreebelle

He's improving and he's won a race over the surface. I have been known to love the Federico Tesio Stakes winners and this colt is no exception. He has some serious closing ability, and with a race over the surface he's got the needed Old Hilltop experience. He's the type of closer that California Chrome hasn't faced before, and I think this colt could be very hard to beat May 17th.

3. Ride On Curlin 
Curlin- Magical Ride

He didn't get a chance to run his race Derby day Calvin pretty much put him through the ringer. This colt would've had a serious chance at second if he had been giving a clear trip, but unfortunately there are no second chances in the Derby, and that's why they aim him here at a try in the Preakness. He's certainly got the ability to upset California Chrome if he gets a clean trip, and he could get first run at California Chrome, and weaken him up a bit for Kid Cruz to wear him down.

4. Ria Antonia 
Rockport Harbor- Beer Baroness

She may not be able to beat her own sex, but that's perfectly okay. The fillies are way better than the colts this year and with her closing ability, and all the speed in this years Preakness she may be able to come flying late. She's a big filly, and definitely has the body type to compete against the boys. Though it's hard to be a filly this year something tells me she will prove it's better to be a filly this year than a colt.
