Thanks Blue Jay! I will edit!


Tried to edit but ended up copying so will stay with it! 


It's OK if you have the same picks, ponygirl. It happens!

I'm feeling pretty good about Mage today. Mage is the only Kentucky Derby participant that will be competing today in the Preakness. 

Unusual to see only 7 contenders in the Preakness. Down to almost half the contenders compared to previous years.

Enjoy today's card.  : )


Thanks SandyGirl! 


Although this is not official, I think this is the weakest Preakness field ever to run against a Kentucky Derby Champion.


I tend to agree, Blue Jay!

Also, note that Pimlico is definitely a speed favoring track..thinking National Treasure will set the pace for Mage. We shall see.

FIRST MISSION scratched from Preakness! 

Let your life be driven with purpose!

by (574,610 points)

Oh crap. Thanks.


A left hind issue will prevent Lexington Stakes (G3) winner first Mission from running in the Preakness Stakes (G1) May 20 at Pimlico.

Godolphin will scratch First Mission from this year's Preakness after consulting with the 1/ST veterinary team. He will receive further evaluation in Kentucky at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital with veterinarian Dr. Larry Bramlage.

1/ST operates Maryland Jockey Club tracks Laurel and Pimlico.

According to a Godolphin release, trainer Brad Cox worked with the 1/ST veterinary team the past couple of days to try and fully identify a left hind issue but was unable to do so on the grounds at Pimlico.

"We are obviously very disappointed, but the welfare of the horse is our utmost concern, and we are going to take the necessary steps to determine the best course of action to get him back on the track," said Godolphin director of bloodstock Michael Banahan.

Thank you for posting this great information, Blue Jay! : )




Thx Sandy:)


You're welcome, Blue Jay! : )


Kentucky Derby Winner Mage hit his head in his stall May 18 days before the Preakness Stakes  May 20 at Pimlico Race Course

His condition was confirmed by assistant trainer Gustavo Delgado Jr., and co-owners Brian Doxtator of CMNWLTH and Ramiro Restrepo. Doxtator said via text that it "wasn't much, couple inches above his eye."

Restrepo tweeted, "(Mage) received care & treatment by the State Vet and resumed training per usual with no interruptions. As per ALL Preakness starters, he was reviewed by the State Vets today and is ready to race."

Mage is the 8-5 morning line favorite in Saturday's second jewel of the Triple Crown.

The Preakness day card took a tragic turn during the Chick Lang Stakes today / Saturday when Havnameltdown, trained by Bob Baffert , broke down and was euthanized on the track. Jockey Luis Saez was hurled to the ground and taken to a nearby Sinai hospital. Havnameltdown was rounding the far turn when he appeared to take a bad step, throwing Saez to the ground. He suffered a broken left front fetlock injury that was non-operable, according to Dr. Dionne Benson, chief veterinary officer for 1/ST Racing, which runs Pimlico Race Course. In a gruesome scene, Havnameltdown kept running with his lower leg clearly damaged. An outrider corralled him midway in the stretch.Benson and other veterinarians quickly made the decision to euthanize the horse on the track. A screen was placed around the horse to keep the public from seeing the final moments.

Saez, who was sitting up at one point, was put on a stretcher and taken away by ambulance. He was conscious, stable and complaining of leg pain. : (

Sad story Sandy:). You scooped me on this one.


Yes! This tragic incident was addressed again after Baffert's National Treasure win today. Did you catch that, Blue Jay?


They were talking about it when i turned on my TV about 4:45. I was going to post after the race.

Thx for saving me extra work SandyGirl:)


You're welcome, Blue Jay! :)


I am so sorry to hear of this horse’s irreparable injury and his euthanasia… Oh dear, I am glad I wasn’t watching that race. These types of things upset me terribly for the horse obviously but also for the jockey. I will say a prayer for him and his quick recovery!


Keep us posted on Luis Saez’s recovery!


Same, lady4u. I never get use to such tradgities.

Update on Luis Saez:

Luis was originally complaining of leg pain but his agent Kiaran McLaughlin told the Daily Racing Form that his x-rays came back clean and that he wanted to ride on Sunday. 


Awesome! Thanks for the update !


You're welcome!
