Sound Off; Preakness Stakes
To the 'Guy who doesn't appreciate The Sport Of Kings' - I've got no love for you either. If the world doesn't end tomorrow your going to miss the second jewel of the most elusive title in sports entertainment, The Triple Crown. If I may say so myself, this is my favorite of the three thoroughbred horse races on center stage throughout the spring months, The Preakness Stakes. (1) A victory for Kentucky Derby winning pony Animal Kingdom, well that would mean horse hysteria for till we arrive in Elmont for the third leg. (2) It's in Baltimore, Maryland. Charm City baby! Pimlico Racetrack, their famed 'Infield,' the Woodlawn Vase, getting excited now! (3) My Call - Sway Away The Colt comes from a former Preakness winner ('05 Afleet Alex), he's had a couple bad outings and didn't make it to the Derby, but I expect Sway Away to put a damper on the Trip Crown. All things aside, just watch The Preakness, it's a wonderful afternoon on the beltway and I couldn't be more excited.
