Horse racing, Pimlico, Preakness Stakes

Jeff Nahill’s Pimlico opinions for Saturday, Oct. 3 (Races 6-11)

SIXTH RACE: 1. Somelikeithotbrown, 2. Factor This, 3. Hembree. LONG SHOT: Irish Strait.


SEVENTH RACE: 1. Admiral Lynch, 2. Landeskog, 3. Stan the Man. LONG SHOT: Eastern Bay.


EIGHTH RACE: 1. Wootton Asset, 2. Nautilus, 3. Hidden Enemy. LONG SHOT: Catman.


NINTH RACE: 1. Don Juan Kitten, 2. Reconvene, 3. Chocolate Bar. LONG SHOT: Monday Morning QB.

10TH RACE: 1. Miss Marissa, 2. Bonny South, 3. So Darn Hot. LONG SHOT: Hopeful Growth.

11TH RACE (GRADE I Preakness): 1. Art Collector, 2. Authentic, 3. Thousand Words, 4. Swiss Skydiver. LONG SHOT: Pnuematic.It looked like ART COLLECTOR was coming up to a big race in the Kentucky Derby until he was shelved by a minor foot injury. I think the son of Bernardini sits off the pace of AUTHENTIC and pounces at head of the lane. AUTHENTIC was impressive in winning the Derby, but I am surprised trainer Bob Baffert is running here with no Triple Crown on the line. I thought he would wait for the Breeders’ Cup Classic. I still believe THOUSAND WORDS has a big race in him despite flipping  in the paddock before the Derby. SWISS SKYDIVER is the filly angle and Pneumatic is the “wise guy” horse so you won’t close to that 20-1 morning line.


Good luck. Stay safe.
