Sticking With The “In” Crowd For The Preakness (5/20)

May 20th, 2011 | By | Category: Today's Picks, Triple Crown

The Preakness is looks like it will be run over a dry track on Saturday so no need to look for the mudders — but you should be looking for value in a race that is usually kind to chalk.  However, the logical choices stand out and it should be a form filled race with several speeds signed on and two very logical closers in Dialed in (#10) and the Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom (#11).

I’m betting on Dialed In to take this at 4-1 with a late charge because of a sub 47 half mile (wish he had that in the Derby) and a much better price than Animal Kingdom who will be 8-5 and needs to prove it again to me to be a believer.  Maybe Flashpoint (#4) holds on for 3rd and Mucho Macho Man (#9) runs his typically strong race to pick up a check.

Good luck to everyone and I will post all my picks early Saturday before 10am!
