Today marks the 135th running of the Preakness Stakes race at the Pimlico race track in Baltimore, Maryland. The Preakness is , of course, the second leg of the Triple Crown race. Beautiful weather is expected for the 2010 Preakness race, with a fast track expected, which was not the case for the Kentucky Derby, which was raced on a very sloppy and wet track. The Preakness Stakes is the shortest race of the three Triple Crown races, at 1 and 3/16 miles, compared to 1 and 1/4 and 1 and 1/2.
Kentucky Derby winner, Super Saver, is the favorite for this years Preakness race, as he looks to win the second leg of the Triple Crown to head into the Belmont Stakes on June 5th looking to make history. The last horse to win all three races of the Triple Crown was Affirmed in 1978. If anyone can pull it of it would probably be jockey Calvin Borel, who has won three of the past four Triple Crown races – including last years Preakness race, where he won with Rachel Alexandra (also the race favorite).
