It’s Preakness day here in Baltimore which means several things for different people.

  • For horse racing fans, it’s the best day of the year as the second leg of the Triple Crown comes to Baltimore.
  • For college kids, it’s a great excuse to drink bottomless mugs with Kegasus and listen to crappy music.
  • For your average Baltimore sports fans, it’s the one day of the year to pay attention to horse racing.

Kentucky Derby winner “I’ll Have Another” finds himself in post position nine with a 5-2 morning line.  My money is on “Bodemeister”, the three-year-old Virginia-bred colt out of the seventh post position.  The local favorite’s morning line is 8-5.

Another horse to watch is “Tiger Walk” out of the first post position.  “Tiger Walk” is the first horse that Under Armour founder Kevin Plank’s “Sagamore Farms” will be racing in the Preakness.  He’s a longshot though at 30-1.

Post time for the Preakness is 6:18 PM.

Who are you picking?
