California Chrome – taking the bows after winning the GI Kentucky Derby this year!

California Chrome, came out of yesterday’s GI Kentucky Derby in fine shape leading his connections to say “It’s on to Baltimore” and the 139th GI Preakness Stakes, on Saturday May 17th, at Pimlico race course where the lure of a newly increased purse of $1.5 million is waiting in this 2nd jewel of the 2014 Triple Crown Series!

Some Early Preakness – Free Past Performances

Other 2014 Preakness Probables are, Social Inclusion, Kid Cruz, the Fredico Tesio Stakes winner and GIII Illinois Derby winner Dynamic Impact with Derby scratcher Pablo Del Monte , also looks to be in the Preakness mix this year.

NEW – Bayern, the dq’d 2nd in the GIII Derby Trial Stakes seems pointed to a May 17th start here and Ring Weekend, the GII Tampa Bay Derby winner this year is over his spiking fever that knocked him out of the Derby this year is another logical candidate for this 1 3/16 mile journey!

NEW – Ride On Curlin is now Preakness bound and gets a jockey switch to Joel Rosario, too!

NEW G_A_Rod_AR General A Rod, is now in!

The connections of Derby runner-up Commanding Curve , say there is a 50/50 chance he’ll run back here in 2 weeks!

No word yet from Todd Pletcher on Danza‘s (3rd in the Derby)next start!

Wicked Strong, Samraat finishing noses apart in the Derby when running fourth and fifth, and Uncle Sigh have all been ruled out of a Preakness run by their connections as of this posting!

We’d look for even more Derby runners to commit here shortly as the GI Preakness Stakes offers only 14 gates each season, with 5 gates set aside for the first 5 Derby finishers, so supply is limited!
