Preakness Stakes

Horse racing newsletter: It's the Preakness in October


CAPTAIN SCOTTY took control quickly then moved to the inside, led a bit off the rail while clear into the stretch, held command through the final furlong but was overtaken in the late stages.


DYLANS WILD CAT stalked the speed off the rail, closed in around the turn, took aim three wide into the stretch, floated out by the leader in the lane, drew up on even terms at the sixteenth pole and proved best.


MAGICAL GRAY shifted out and bumped rival at the start, dropped back off the pace early, saved ground around the turn, tipped out in the stretch, rallied inside the leader, gained command near the sixteenth pole and drew clear.


DEVILS DANCE chased the speed from inside, exited the bend two to three wide, took over in upper stretch, moved clear near the eighth pole but could not match the winner late.


MITHQAAL up close outside the leader early, pressed the issue near the three-eighths, headed rival around the far turn and took command at the quarter pole, led into the stretch but was outkicked in the late stages.


OF GOOD REPORT broke out and bumped rival leaving the gate, tracked along the inside then a bit off the rail on the backstretch, angled in on the second turn, lacked room in upper stretch and flattened.
