1998 Preakness ResultsDateline: 5/16/98
For the 27th time we have a possible Triple Crown winner. Can he do it? It all depends on who shows up for the Belmont, but just the possiblity is exciting. I hope the NTRA really capitalizes on this opportunity to get horse racing in the spotlight.
Here is a collection of links to recaps, quotes, photos, video, and of course the chart.
