While we were reading up on some Preakness stats, we came across this “startling stat”!

For those of you looking for Preakness Workout Reports, well there simply aren’t many yet.
Update: you can now find preakness→ workout info on our Preakness Workout Reports side-bar link where we are caching all the workout reports we can find for you!
We are dealing with a much smaller 14 horse field and as we count them now, 7 Derby runners are coming.
So their workouts, if any, will be very light breezes and not until the weekend or early next week, with no red meat on the bones to them, so to speak!
Concealed Identity and Ruler on Ice both ran this past Saturday in the Tesio Stakes (the Preakness Prep) here at Pimlico so their workout schedules will be very light, as well!
So there’s little reason for anyone from a major racing publication to be covering workouts that aren’t happening!
But here’s a little something for you to peruse today! “click on this link below”
UPDATE; Also, a little H. Graham Motion talking up Animal Kingdom after a light workout at Fair Hills! Click here to see a bit of video!
Stay tuned, as we’ll bring you anything happening on the Preakness Workout front!
