 May 21 at Pimlico, but not until very recently did Dale Romans, the trainer of Shackleford, realize that his colt is in line for smaller, albeit significant, bonus as well.

“I didn’t know about it until yesterday,” Romans said Thursday on a national teleconference. “It’s a little more incentive to go there.”

Yes, by virtue of merely running in the Fountain of Youth Stakes, then finishing second in the Florida Derby, Shackleford is eligible for a $550,000 bonus in the Preakness. That means that both he and Dialed In stand to win more money should they capture the Preakness than would Animal Kingdom, who just outran those two rivals, and 16 others, in the Kentucky Derby.

Currently the list looks like this for next Saturdays Preakness


   Horse                  Trainer             Jockey      Last Start      Watchmaker's Odds
 
  Animal Kingdom Graham Motion John Velazquez 1st, Kentucky Derby 5-2

  Astrology Steve Asmussen Mike Smith 2nd, Jerome 15-1
 
  Concealed Identity Eddie Gaudet Sheldon Russell 1st, Tesio 30-1

  Dance City Todd Pletcher Ramon Dominguez 3rd, Arkansas Derby 15-1

  Dialed In Nick Zito Julien Leparoux 8th, Kentucky Derby 6-1

  Flashpoint Wesley Ward Cornelio Velasquez 4th, Florida Derby 20-1

  Isn't He Perfect * Doodnauth Shivmangal Undecided 5th, Jerome 50-1

  King Congie Tom Albertrani Robby Albarado 3rd, Blue Grass 20-1

  Midnight Interlude  Bob Baffert Martin Garcia 16th, Kentucky Derby 15-1
 
  Mr. Commons John Shirreffs Victor Espinoza 3rd, Santa Anita Derby 20-1

  Mucho Macho Man Kathy Ritvo Rajiv Maragh 3rd, Kentucky Derby 6-1

  Nehro Steve Asmussen Corey Nakatani 2nd, Kentucky Derby 5-1

  Norman Asbjornson Chris Grove Julian Pimentel 4th, Wood Memorial 30-1

  Saratoga Red * D. Wayne Lukas Undecided 6th, Churchill allowance 10-1

  Shackleford Dale Romans Jesus Castanon 4th, Kentucky Derby 12-1

  Sway Away Jeff Bonde Garrett Gomez 4th, Arkansas Derby 20-1



I high lighted the ones I think are the best in the field I think Shackleford is not out of the Running but think Nehro been holding back and is the one to watch...fine print stuff here...Remember all investments run a chance of loss's- remember you should deversfy(sp) your porfolio with other ivestments, slots winnings-lottery tickets etc

Heard of some distressin' news of late affectin' the horses on the Western end of the map..
EHV-1 Equine Herpes Virus -1 had reared it's ugly head in Ogden Utah at a NCHA Cuttin' horse competition from April 30 to May 8th. A few cases have been reported in CA, NV, WA, ID, UT, CO British Columbia and a case in Alberta Canada. There is no cure for this deadly virus, and horses can be exposed by airborne or contact touch or equipment. Horse tracks can be next in line for being "on watch".
I am a 7 year volunteer member of the Reno Rodeo and this will certainly throw a challenge at our feet, I work back in the stalls area checkin' in the contestants horses. Our rodeo runs 10 days and a couple days a head for preperation. Our rodeo has one of the last known cattle drives to open the festivities. We may house a couple thousand head during this time on contestant turnover. We have 3 big jackpot ropings, a PWCA barrel race, a santioned NCHA/PCCH/NRC/CHA Cutting horse futurity, cow sorting...etc. We have state and local officials learning more about the risks and preventive measures right now
I just wanted to let some unsupecting horse owners know 'bout this.
I wish I knew how to post a link with the info needed...I'm dumb as a rock on the cut + paste to link to the pages necessary :(
I just "googled" the info and a host of news articles came up...

Heard about this and it is awful.  Some events have been canceled here because of it.  I would hope that the trainers/owners out here would not risk exposing the stock back east to it.

Yes, it's not a new threat...virus has been aound a long time, just rearin' it's ugly head again. Colorado has prevented inter-state travel with horses with out a health cert..Just hopin' we don't hafta bust out the thermometers on the rodeo grounds..

It is one of the biggest money making scams of all time so why should horse racing be left out?

Professional rassler Randy 'Macho Man' Savage died yesterday. Could it be a sign?
Honorary Life Member of the Pungo Posse. Badge #1. An honor bestowed by the posse. Couldn’t be more proud or humbled.

All I did was name it ‘n get it started. The posse made it great. A debt I can never repay. Thank you, mi amigos.
