2007 Preakness Field With Analysis
by Trevor Whenham - 05/16/2007
The field is set, the horses are ready, and all that's left before the 2007 Preakness is the wait. If you're anything like me then the next few days will tick by painfully slowly. Unlike the big 20 horse field in the Derby, this small nine horse field is relatively easy to evaluate, especially since at least four of the horses can be thrown out with little consideration. It's also one of those relatively rare cases in horse racing in which the result that the majority of people would like to see is also the result that seems most likely. Here's a look at the 2007 Preakness field now that entries are in and the morning line is set:

Looking for a Preakness Longshot
by Trevor Whenham - 05/16/2007
Conventional wisdom would indicate that the Preakness winner is likely to be one of the top three finishers from the Derby - Street Sense, Hard Spun or Curlin - given their clear class advantage over the rest of the starters. Though I tend to believe that to be true, conventional wisdom is no way to get rich quickly in this case. To do that you are going to have to find a longshot you like, and then get really lucky. That's easier said than done. Here's my best attempt at making a case for the longshots in the 2007 Preakness field.

Preakness: a Three-Horse Race
by Trevor Whenham - 05/15/2007
Though it's certainly possible that it won't end up to be true, it sure is tempting to view the Preakness as a three-horse race. The top three finishers from the Derby - Street Sense, Hard Spun and Curlin - are all heading to Baltimore for the second leg of the Triple Crown. More importantly, all have come out of the Derby well, and all look to have efforts good enough to win in them.

The 2007 Preakness is less than two weeks away, so that leaves us with a major task to accomplish before then - 2007 Preakness analysis. We are still a week away from knowing exactly who is going to be in the field and what post positions they will break from, but that doesn't mean that we can't look to see what we can learn from history. In the Triple Crown races history has a way of repeating itself again and again - horses that didn't run at two can't win the Derby, Todd Pletcher's Derby horses would struggle to beat me in a foot race and Bob Baffert is almost unbeatable in Baltimore if he has a live horse.

Street Sense - Triple Crown Contender?
by Trevor Whenham - 05/09/2007
Can Street Sense win the Preakness? That's a question that will haunt me for the next week and a half. I'm so desperate for a Triple Crown winner that I'd sell my soul, and I wouldn't even demand a really steep price. Street Sense certainly has the look of a champion, but so did Silver Charm. And Real Quiet. And Charismatic. And War Emblem, Smarty Jones and Funny Cide, too. All those horses did is break my heart. I want to believe that it will be different this year. But will it? Does he have what it takes to get out of Baltimore with a victory and head to New York for a date with destiny? Here's a look:
