Preakness Hopefuls Eyeing Weather For Workouts

View Comments

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Trainers for Kentucky Derby runner-up Nehro along with other candidates for the Preakness are watching the weather before setting workouts early this week at Churchill Downs.

Nehro and Astrology, both trained by Steve Asmussen, ran two miles on Sunday at the track, but the trainer is watching the weather before deciding if they’ll run Monday or Tuesday in advance of Saturday’s second leg of the Triple Crown.

Rain is in the forecast for Louisville for the next 24 hours, including a 60 percent chance of showers Monday morning.

Other Preakness hopefuls, including Dialed In, had workouts Sunday in Louisville.

Midnight Interlude galloped a mile and five-eighths while Sway Away walked the shedrow at Barn 42 a day after working six furlongs.
