May 13, 2010

The Kentucky Derby left us with a sweet and exciting memory in our minds, but don’t worry, the Preakness Stakes has arrived and here you have the contenders list. So take a look at it and don’t forget to check out the photos and video below.

Preakness Stakes 2010

The Preakness Stakes had its first race on May 27, 1873 in Baltimore, Maryland. Since that time the race was always scheduled to be on the third Saturday of May, and that’s the way it has been ever since.

This Saturday May 15th, Baltimore will be celebrating it 135th Preakness Stakes at the Pimlico Race Course, and people are ready to make their bets on their favorite horses. Kentucky Derby 2010 winner Super Saver is among the favorites especially because jockey Calvin Borel won the Preakness last year, and will be competing once again alongside Super saver trainer Todd Pletcher.

Another favorite was Ice Box who finished over 2.5 lengths behind Super Saver. Do you remember the pictures of these two magnificent animals at the Derby? He will miss the Preakness, the reason has not yet been confirmed by its trainer Nick Zito, just that they will pass on this one and get ready to Belmont. But his other horse, Jackson Bend, who missed the Preakness last year is ready to race this Saturday. Another great horse who will miss the race due to a left hind leg injury is Hurricane Ike. As for another favorite, Eskendereya, who missed the Derby due to a soft tissue injury which still hasn’t healed yet. It will be a no show at Baltimore also.
