As the weather-vane was being painted, and the winner’s circle festivities were taking place, there must have been some part of Doug O’Neill that wanted the trucks packed, and his runner heading to Belmont.

Free Preakness Selections

The 137th running of the Preakness Stakes has shaped up nicely. Eleven runners go post-ward at 6:18 p.m. ET, and about two minutes later we will know if the chase for the Triple Crown is still alive.
