It looks like No. 147 is set ... The Preakness was drawn on Monday afternoon in Baltimore, and we have a field of 9 that will be headed to the starting gate at Pimlico Race Course come Saturday PM.

It was expected that Steve Asmussen's Epicenter #8, at M/L odds of 6/5, would be installed as the favorite. The colt by Not This Time, owned by Ron Winchell of Winchell Thoroughbreds and ridden by Eclipse Champion Jockey Joel Rosario, was second in the Kentucky Derby to long shot winner Rich Strike. His HOF conditioner has a strong record at Pimlico, winning the Preakness with Curlin back in 2007, and last year, his Winchell-owned colt, Midnight Bourbon (who sadly passed away recently), was just behind eventual winner, Rombauer. 

As for the rest of the field, it was also ordained that D. Wayne Lukas, and his talented filly by Arrogate would be making the trip to Baltimore to "take on the boys." Secret Oath #4 (9/2) will break from the middle gate, but we all know that her powerful leg kick can be employed with a devastating effect. Last out, in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks, she won nicely, making a strong move before the top of the lane arrived. Luis Saez gets the call, and "Coach's" team will be the primary threat to Asmussen collecting the historic Woodlawn Vase at Old Hilltop. As for Lukas, he has 6 Preakness wins to his credit ... the last coming in 2013 with Oxbow, ridden by HOF jockey Gary Stevens.

As for KYD148 alums ... Antonio Sano's earlier arriving Simplification #1 (6/1), who will be ridden by HOF-er John Velazquez, is ready, as is Doug O'Neill's boxcar-priced, Happy Jack #6 (30/1), who will get Tyler Gaffalione, and will go with "Blinkers On." Other notable "new shooters," as the phrase goes, include Chad Brown's Klaravich Stables-owned Early Voting #5 (7/2), Kenny McPeek's Creative Minister #2 (10/1), Kevin McKathan's Fenwick #3 (50/1), Tim Yakteen's Armagnac #7 (12/1), and drawn to the far outside, Saffie Joseph's Skippylongstocking #9 (20/1). Going 1 3/16ths on the Main Track, it will be yet another "Triple Test" along the Trail.

With the Black-Eyed Susan Day scheduled for Friday, it is safe to say that it is going to be a huge weekend at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Horseracing.net/us will be with you every step of the way, as we point towards the annual renewal of the Preakness Stakes. Look for J.N. Campbell's Preview of both races on Wednesday, and be sure to follow us on Twitter ... Horseracing_USA !!!
