An attorney close to negotiations on horse racing in Maryland says he’s hopeful a long-term plan to bring stability to the state’s industry will be reached by the end of the week.
Horse-racing fans are mourning the death of Deputed Testamony, winner of the 1983 Preakness Stakes.
Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I’ll Have Another was ailing well before he was retired from racing with a tendon injury the day ahead of his bid to win the Belmont Stakes and become the first Triple Crown champion in 34 years.
It’s a controversy four decades in the making. Did Secretariat actually set a record at Preakness? This week, we’re going to find out.
Secretariat’s owner has asked the Maryland Racing Commission to conduct a hearing about changing the time of the horse’s winning run in the 1973 Preakness Stakes.
Union Rags picked up right where I’ll Have Another left off, coming from behind to catch a Bob Baffert-trained horse at the finish in a Triple Crown race.
The vet called it a freak injury– tendonitis in I’ll Have Another’s left front leg, but it was serious enough to pull the colt out of the starting gate for Saturday’s big race.
Who will take the big victory at the Belmont Stakes?
The 137th running of the Preakness stakes is in the books. A picture perfect day certainly helped draw record crowds.
Since Affirmed last won horse racing’s Triple Crown in 1978, 11 3-year-olds have won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness– but fallen short in the Belmont Stakes. I’ll Have Another will try to snap that streak on June 9.
I’ll Have Another had Bodemeister in his sights again, a shot at the Triple Crown hanging in the balance.
Creative Cause finished third in the Preakness, an afterthought in the duel to the wire between winner I’ll Have Another and Bodemeister.
