What Can Brown Do At Pimlico?

OK don’t go betting the house and take these with a grain of salt, but I like Big Brown to win the 133rd running of the Preakness Stakes Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. A win by Brown (pictured above) would set up some serious hype for the Belmont Stakes on Saturday June 7 where Brown would try to become the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the Triple Crown.

Hey Byrn won last month at Pimlico and knows what it takes to endure on the 1 3/16 miles track. I like him to finish second. I’m gonna go with Yankee Bravo for third place. His rider Alex Solis won the ’86 Preakness with Snow Chief.

Win: Big Brown
Place: Hey Byrn
Show: Yankee Bravo
