Friday at Pimlico

While I hope NBC’s telecast of the Preakness is a little more substantive than the Derby was, at least I have ESPN’s ‘day before‘ coverage to enjoy — I am confident will be thorough and professional. As much as I believe the Triple Crown should be on national television, they seem to have much less understanding of how to cover horse racing — it’s always a bit of a letdown to switch from ESPN when the national coverage begins. But enough of my complaining — on with the show! (Imagine how much more appropriate that would be if Nobiz Like Shobiz were involved).

How can you not like a horse named Silver Knockers?

Sugar Shake is a nice filly, but there’s a lot of potential value here — I also like Leah’s Secret, Swap Fliparoo and Promenade Girl.
Edit: with Sugar Shake opting for the Shuvee instead, let’s go for Swap Fliparoo!
Edit Two: OK, I should be less lazy and see who’s planning on scratching before picking someone. My bad!

Black Eyed Susan
I like Baroness Thatcher (despite her name); Valerie at Foolish Pleasure wisely reminds us to think about the possibility of rain — Panty Raid is one of my picks as well.

The question of rain is well worth considering for the Preakness as well…

    Sugar Shake is now scratched and headed to the Shuvee at Belmont on Saturday instead.

    I checked the weather forecast this evening and now it looks like there is a 60% chance of rain for the Preakness, and only 30% for Friday. I was hopping for a nice sloppy Pimlico track on Friday, just like Churchill Downs the day before the Derby. I love sloppy tracks! 🙂

    Thanks for the heads up! Makes it an even more interesting betting race!
