131st Running of the Preakness Stakes

The field is set and it's time to knock mgc off the top of the horse race handicapping mountain. This time there are three weeks of gloating at stake. With Barbaro an overwhelming favorite and the recent history of Derby winners going on to win the Preakness, this time you should pick the top three finishers in order. (Dusty, you should try to pick horses that are actually in the race.)

Since the Preakness is also the run for the coveted blanket of Black-Eyed Susans, it follows that the beverage of choice on Saturday will be the Black Eyed Susan.

Oddly the Black Eyed Susan isn't in bloom this time of year so if you look closely you might notice that the winner will actually get a blanket of Daisies with the "Eye" painted black.
