Preakness Stakes at Pimlico

Can Street Sense win the second leg of the Triple Crown today? I certainly hope so. If the horse doesn't win, it will make for a less than dramatic Belmont Stakes on June 9th. There's a much better chance of it though, odds-wise, since there are only nine horses running in today's race, unlike the 20 horses who ran the Derby two weeks ago. Of course, Street Sense is the favorite, followed by Hard Spun and Curlin. Post time is at 18:09. Let's just hope that a similar nightmare from last year's Preakness does not happen again, to Street Sense or any of the other horses.

*** 132nd Running of the Preakness Stakes ***
Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, Maryland
Saturday, May 19
Distance: 1 3/16 Miles
Post Time: 6:09 p.m. (ET)
Purse: $1 million

Post Horse

1 Mint Slewlep
2 Xchanger
3 Circular Quay
4 Curlin
5 King of the Roxy
6 Flying First Class
7 Hard Spun
8 Street Sense
9 C P West

18:30 Update: Curlin edged Street Sense by a nose in a very exciting race. Hard Spun placed third. Street Sense came from the back of the pack again to briefly take the lead but could not hold it. Curlin's victory, fastest in Preakness history at 1:53.46, means that the Triple Crown winning drought will continue into 2008. If these same horses run again at Belmont in three weeks it should make for an exciting finish to the Triple Crown races.
