can change. No. will change. But at the moment the field Preakness 2022 حصص Quotas Overflowing with possibilities. The possibilities are another matter.

Those nominees for the second Jewel of the Triple Crown on May 21 at Pimlico in Baltimore, are subject to change – well -. They are listed in order – well – intrigue.

Rich Strike

condition: Possible. Coach:
Eric Reed. jockey: Sony Lyon. The last race: He won the Kentucky Derby. style: deep closer. the story: Winning the derby with an 80-1 chance destroyed all his circumstances. Now he cannot be entered into “non” races. It’s been 10 years since the derby winner entered Preakness as the “other than” favorite. That was when I had another buddymeister upset. This would look a lot closer to 2009, when Mine That Bird was the 50-1 Derby winner and was no better than third choice at Pimlico before narrowly losing to Kentucky Oaks winner Rachel Alexandra.

secret section

condition: Maybe. Coach:
Wayne Lucas. jockey: Luis Contreras. The last race: He won the Kentucky Oaks. style: middle package. the story: You finished third against the males in the Arkansas Derby (G1), so why not try that with a coach who has been there and done it? Lukas sent Derby winner Winning Colors against the boys at Baltimore in 1988. She placed third as Best Preakness. If he’s not here, Lukas said the May 16 Black-Eyed Susan (G2) at Pimlico might be the next stop for Secret Oath.

epicenter

condition: No decision. Coach:
Steve Asmussen. jockey: Joel Rosario. The last race: Second place in the Kentucky Derby. style: Early speed or chaser. the story: He was winning the derby until the last 10 steps. If he goes, he’ll probably be a Preakness favorite. He will be back on track on Wednesday at Churchill Downs. Asmussen and Winchell Thoroughbreds racing director David Fiske said that if the Epicenter looks good, he might be sent to Baltimore.

early voting

condition: Possible. Coach:
Chad Brown. jockey: Jose Ortiz. The last race: 2nd place at Wood Memorial (G2). style: early speed. the story: Although he qualified for the derby, Brown targeted Preakness all the time for this Weathers (G3) race-winning colt Gun Runner (G3) in a hand-to-hand round who was caught by Mo Donegal in the Wood. Only that loss prevented him from being defeated in three races.

simplification

condition: Possible. Coach:
Antonio Sano. jockey: is determined. The last race: Fourth in the Kentucky Derby. style: middle package. the story: With Jose Ortiz riding it near the back of the group, Simplification avoided the early suicidal pace in the Derby. No matter who rides it, it won’t be 35-1 at Pimlico.

smile happily

condition: Maybe. Coach:
Kenny Macbeck. jockey: Corey Lanery. The last race: Eighth in the Kentucky Derby. style: middle package. the story: Before vanishing into his home in Churchill Downs, he got stuck in traffic and settled into the second turn. However, he resisted before the gas ran out. If he hadn’t taken so much from him in the derby, he’d probably like a shorter distance from Preakness.

zandon

condition: No decision. Coach:
Chad Brown. jockey: Flavian Pratt. The last race: Third place in the Kentucky Derby. style: closer. the story: He would have had more intrigues if Brown had not seemed inclined not to go to Baltimore. As promised before the derby, Zandon stayed halfway rather than behind, and pounced just in time. He simply lost to a better horse in a duel with the Epicenter. Oh yes. There was this railroad horse, too.

Kind

condition: Maybe. Coach:
Tim Lecten. jockey: Mike Smith. The last race: Twelfth place in the Kentucky Derby. style: stalker. the story: In only his third race, did he receive a serious baptism and a face full of dirt. He didn’t change the threads in the extension, so who knows how much better he could have done? Bearing in mind the cynical look that this is still Bob Baffert’s colt, he could be the eighth person to win the Preakness Race. Then again, six of those top seven were derby winners, and Thebes are not.

happy jack

condition: Possible. Coach:
Doug O’Neill. jockey: Rafael Bejarano. The last race: Fourteenth place in the Kentucky Derby. style: deep closer. the story: He put in his energy before the derby got stuck on his tail in the starting gate. Then he was slow to get out of it. No wonder the communications are eager to get back into the fray.

creative minister

condition: Maybe. Coach:
Kenny Macbeck. jockey: Brian Hernandez Jr. The last race: We won a 1/16 mile allowance on our Derby bottom card. style: middle package. the story:
If not for a neck loss on his debut, this Creative Causeway colt with an impressive foot turn would be 3 for 3. He’ll come from Lasix for Preakness.

Skippylongstocking

condition: Possible. Coach:
Safi Joseph Jr jockey: Junior Alvarado. The last race: 3rd place in Wood Memorial (G2). style: stalker. the story: This overrated pony is a throwback to a time when racehorses were racing. The Preakness will be his 10th start, but it will be his second start outside of Gulfstream Park, taking two wins in his first company. Joseph won the Winter and Spring titles at Gulfstream. He continues to try to achieve the same kind of dominance north there.

Unojo

condition: Possible. Coach: Ricky Corville. jockey: Ramon Vasquez. The last race: 8th place in the Arkansas Derby (G1). style: stalker. the story: He was diagnosed with a bruised foot on entry day, which put him out of the Kentucky Derby, where it would have been the longest shot on the board. He still dined on the ground hold, his 75-1 victory in the Rebels (G2).

Rattle ‘n’ Roll

condition: Maybe. Coach: Kenny Macbeck. jockey: is determined. The last race: Sixth place in the blue grass (G1). style: middle package. the story: If there was only one defection, he could have been in the derby. His last win was last fall in the Breeders’ Future (G1) competition. He finished the board in his three starts when he was 3 years old, and they are all preparing for the Derby. McPeak said that if Smile Happy went to Preakness, she probably wouldn’t go to Rattle N Roll, because both are owned by the McCains.

ethereal path

condition: Maybe. Coach:
Wayne Lucas. jockey: is determined. The last race: Fourth place in Lexington (G3). style: closer. the story: When the colt “was flat” on Friday morning, Lucas scratched it out of the derby, saying “If I ran it again, then I’d blow summer off.” Ethereal Road raced twice in eight days last month in Keeneland, and his only win in seven starts was at Oaklawn’s first race in January.

Shake im loose

condition: Maybe. Coach:
Rodolfo Sanchez Salomon. jockey: is determined. The last race: Third place in Federico Tesio. style: closer. the story: After a turbulent trip last April 16 in the traditional Preakness setup, owner and coach Sanchez Salomon weighed the classic against turf mile James W. Murphy on the same card. Enricher, who won two black stakes in Laurel Park, had a $16,000 claim last fall.
