Pick: Loser of Kentucky Derby battle to win Preakness Stakes 144 war

Race 13 | Grade I Preakness Stakes | 1 3/16 miles

1. War of Will
2. Improbable
3. Owendale
4. Bodexpress
5. Anothertwistafate

Comment: The argument over the Kentucky Derby only will escalate when War of Will wears the garland of painted daisies (to be Black-eyed Susans). If he’s as primed as he was for the Derby, he wins as long as he can avoid trouble from the one post. He may have been the best horse in the Derby. Improbable is the main challenge to War of Will and a result other than those two would surprise. Expecting Warrior’s Charge and Alwaysmining to burn each other out, setting it up for the the main two who figure to be behind the speed. Owendale is intriguing for exotics, especially if he’s 10-1.
