The eyes of the horse racing world will be fixated on Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland next week when the best three year olds in the land line up in the second jewel of the Triple Crown - the 2013 Preakness Stakes. The colts cut back in distance slightly for the Preakness - they go 1 3/16 miles instead of the 1 1/4 miles we saw at the Kentucky Derby. Some of the contenders for the Preakness started well in the Derby but faded down the stretch. Does the shorter distance give them an advantage?
The Grade 3 Señorita Stakes is on tap for this Saturday, May 11 from Betfair Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California. Three year old fillies will take to the track and go one mile on Hollywood Park's turf track for their share of the $100,000 purse.

The 139th running of the Kentucky Derby is in the books and as per usual, the race lived up to all of the pre-race hype at Churchill Downs.
