Here they are.
1). Rachel Alexandra. I’m a believer. I don’t think she’ll run her best race. I don’t think she’ll have to.
2). Pioneerof the Nile. I thought he was the horse to beat in the Derby, and if anyone other than the filly is here, it’s Bob Baffert’s colt who finished second in the Derby.
3). General Quarters. He got some bad breaks in the Derby, had his nose partially plugged up with mud, and still finished in the middle of the pack. He’s already survived a trailer wreck to get to the Preakness. He’ll get up into the money today.
I’m watching from Churchill Downs today. Hoping maybe to watch with Rachel Alexandra’s former trainer, Hal Wiggins, who has a horse in the last race at Churchill today.
