Four years ago trainer Steve Asmussen won the Preakness with Curlin, a lightly raced colt who developed into a two-time Horse of the Year. Two years ago, he came with another Horse of the Year, Rachel Alexandra, the first filly to win the Preakness since Nellie Morse in 1924. Asmussen will try his hand again Saturday, this time with Astrology. The son of A.P. Indy was co-owned by the late Jess Jackson, who also owned Rachel Alexandra.
