The rest of the Preakness field rounds out with: Aikenite, Caracortado, Pleasant Prince, Yawanna Twist, Schoolyard Dreams, Northern Giant, Hurricane Ike, and First Dude. Borel rode Hurricane Ike to a win in the Derby Trial but then won the Derby with Super Saver. So he will face his old mount against jockey Robby Albarado.

The Preakness is a grade I stakes race for three year olds with a total prize purse of $1,000,000.

It is contested on a dirt track over a distance of 1 3/16th mile.

The field is limited to 14 entrants and as of now it appears that only a few horses that ran in the Kentucky Derby on May 1st have opted to enter this race. This opens the door for quite a few new faces to get their shot at glory on Saturday.
