Now that we have recovered from Big Brown's win in the Kentucky Derby, it is time to look ahead to the Preakness on May 17. Will Big Brown win and have a chance at the Triple Crown or will someone else step up and beat him? Here is the current list of horses planning to start in the Preakness, and this year Big Brown may be the only Derby horse to go on to the Preakness. I guess the others think they will have a better shot at beating him in the Belmont when he is a bit more tired and they are fresh. Entries will be drawn opn May 14, so watch for the post positions that night.
