    Post positions to be drawn Wednesday afternoon for what looks to be a full field of 14. Derby winner Animal Kingdom a likely morning-line favorite of about 5-to-2; his trainer doesn't plan to get him to Pimlico until Saturday morning. No Nehro in the race, but Dialed In and Mucho Macho Man are giving it another try. Chance of rain is pretty good through Friday, then improving nicely for race day.

    Good luck to one and all.

    Just doesn't seem like his kind of setup, even before the weird decision to ship him the day of the race.

    Not in the stars for the Astrology people, as he gets stuck on the rail.

    No excuses for Animal Kingdom (2-1) from post 11.

    My initial pick is Mucho Macho Man, but that could change. Interested in Midnight Interlude a little bit.

    Preakness is a state?

    Let me put 3-4-5-1 in a superfecta box.

    Easy money is a 3-4 exacta, but sometimes you need to live a little bit.

    Hmmm ... would it be worth it to me to start a meth habit on Saturday and make the 9.-10. exacta come true at a massive price? Thinking, thinking ...

    Could work, but you need to think about pulling a Mongo if you can't outkick the third horse.

    Taser would be more discreet. Track stewards see the right cross and DQ my ass.
