Quick Thoughts about Every Preakness Horse

#1. Dynamic Impact developed late but still well below these. Has some style flexibility which could be an asset from rail.

#2. General A Rod is a notch below these.  I’d like him in the Indiana or Iowa Derby later this summer.

#3. California Chrome is best on paper.  If he wins, he’ll become the biggest public horse since Smarty Jones.

#4. Ring Weekend hasn’t moved forward since the Tampa Bay Derby.  Seems a stretch.

#5. Bayern is intriguing.  Talented, but will he relax?  Pedigree questions as well.

#6. Ria Antonia doesn’t belong in this race.  Not terribly sure why she is.  I guess anything can happen.

#7. Kid Cruz has the right style, but may not be fast enough to win here.  He’s going to be coming in the final furlong!

#8. Social Inclusion is as fast as California Chrome.  Can he survive the fast pace, and if so, can he match California Chrome’s heart and will to win?

#9. Pablo Del Monte is another pace factor among many.  Could appreciate the added distance in the stretch.

#10. Ride on Curlin is a closing threat.  An improvement is needed, but not impossible.
