2005 Preakness Contenders


Pimlico  Old  Clubhouse Cupola

The cupola from the old clubhouse at Pimlico, the most recognizable symbol of the Preakness.

Now that we have recovered from the shock of Giacomo's upset in the Kentucky Derby, it is time to look ahead to the Preakness on M21. Will Giacomo win and have a chance at the Triple Crown or was he just a lucky longshot who will be defeated at Pimlico? Here is the current list of horses planning to start in the Preakness. This should change a lot over the next week as trainers decide who to send.

Click the horse's name to see a profile with lots of information, stats, and a photo where available. A star by the dosage indicates a dual qualifier.
