1999 Preakness Entries

Dateline: 5/12/99

Check here for the results and race photos.

The entries have been drawn and the morning line odds decided. Silverbulletday scratched after the draw due to post position and ran in Black-Eyed Susan on Friday instead winning easily. All week they were saying Vicar would be scratched unless someone else dropped out so he wouldn't be wider than the 12 hole, but this morning Carl Nafzger reversed himself and decided to run after all. He said he walked out on the track and measured the position where he would break from and decided it was inside the crown of the track which was acceptable.

Below are photos of and links to info about all the Preakness entries, including post position and morning line odds. More Preakness and Triple Crown info can be found on my page of  Triple Crown 1999 links and I also have a TV coverage schedule available.
