It’s just under 2 days till the 136th Preakness, and the field has been drawn.  Animal Kingdom, winner of the Kentucky Derby, has been made the morning line favourite at 2-1.  I would expect his odds to be lower at post time, probably 6-5 or even money.  He won the Derby gamely although the pace was like watching paint dry.  OTB is working on analysis and picks, so stay tuned.  We didn’t cash on the Derby, but there’s only 14 horses running here, so our natural odds are that much better.

    Actually, one of us picked Nehro, who finished second.
