And they’re under starter’s orders! The Preakness Stakes, the second jewel of the American Triple Crown, will be a spectacle you won’t want to miss as Nyquist aims to get another win under his belt as he aims to achieve what American Pharaoh did last year. But can he hold off the challenger, Exaggerator? Click down for the live stream to see!
It’s going to be an epic race, with 11 horses vying for top spot and aiming to beat Nyquist and jockey Mario Gutierrez, who are the hot favorites for this one. After winning the Kentucky Derby with such an impressive performance, it’s hard to look past the three-year-old thoroughbred going for the clean sweep and winning this one and then the Belmont Stakes.
But he will have tough competition from Exaggerator, who will no doubt push Nyquist all the way just like at the Derby when he finished runner-up. If anyone can do it, Exaggerator can and it will be TOTALLY about who starts the race better out of the two top horses.
It’s going to be an a-mazing race day, and something we can’t wait to see. With Nyquist being 5/7 favorite, it’s hard to look past him repeating his Kentucky Derby performance. But may the best horse win!
