Cool beans - I was rooting for Mine That Bird, but he just had the wrong jockey, I guess.A couple more strides and the Kentucky Derby winner "Mine That Bird" would have won the Preakness too. A bit of bad luck as he got trapped for a moment before making his run, but what a horse! He sailed past most of the field again and was so close to taking the second leg. The filly that won was lovely, but I was kind of rooting for Mine That Bird.
You are close, it has been 85 years since a filly has won the Preakness. The last time a filly won the Preakness was 1924.It was so nice to see a filly take it. =) I think I heard it had been something like 76 years since a filly has won the Preakness.
Sea Biscuit and War Admiral style I like that.From what I understand, the filly, Rachel, had the worst pole position, not sure what position MTB had. It'd be interesting to see them head to head without so much disparity in starting position and also without the obvious impediment of the other traffic.
