The Triple Crown Continues on TSN with the Preakness

The Triple Crown Continues on TSN with the Preakness”

Distorted Humor, who stands at WinStar Farm, got his stud career off to a flying start with first-crop champion Funny Cide, who won the 2003 Kentucky Derby and Preakness before finishing third in the Belmont Stakes in his Triple Crown attempt.

The resulting field isn't as strong as the one Justify bested in Kentucky, but those who did not take part in the Derby could be fresher.

Four new challengers for Justify are in the Preakness field - Diamond King, Quip, Sporting Chance and Tenfold. Good Magic, the Derby runner-up who is trained by Chad Brown, drew Post 5 and was made the second choice at 3-1.

Baffert has also overseen two other Preakness wins, and he needs just one more victory in a Triple Crown race to match D. Wayne Lukas' record of 14.

Following the KENTUCKY DERBY, all eyes are focused on the PREAKNESS STAKES at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, taking place on Saturday, May 19.

Quip won the Grade II Tampa Bay Derby and finished second in the Grade I Arkansas Derby, giving him enough points to get in the Kentucky Derby; however, his connections preferred to point him to the Preakness.

Following the PREAKNESS STAKES, TSN heads to Belmont Park in NY, to deliver the final stop in the American Triple Crown, the 150th running of the one and a half mile BELMONT STAKES on June 9.
