I'll have Another did. He's the first horse in 4 years to take the Derby and the Preakness, the first two races of the Triple Crown. It's been 33 years since Affirmed won all 3 back in '78.

MY 4 Preakness horses, so you don't have to look it up, finished 1 - 2 - 3 - 5, AND in the right order to make my heart happy: Another, Bodemeister, Creative Cause and Teeth of the Dog. Not bad, if I do say so myself!

IHA and his people are headed for NYC and the Belmont and as of right now, are planning to enter. Of course, it will depend on how the colt comes back from today.

Two horses he will probably face are Dullahan (3rd in the Derby) and Union Rags (7th in the Derby.) Neither of them ran today. For some reason, I have the feeling that Bodemeister and Went the Day Well will NOT go to New York. But what do I know?

One thing I DO know is I hope Nick Zito has nothing hiding in the back barn. The last two times a horse won both of the first two races, Smarty Jones in '04 and Big Brown in '08, Zito won the third leg, with Birdstone and Da'Tara. There are some trainers who get off on such spoilers.

Peri and Esther
Haven't heard a peep out of Esther all day, not even when Peri picks her up and I wish I thought that was a good sign. She doesn't seem to be dehydrated, so it could be her system has adjusted to life outside the womb. However, Peri went outside this afternoon and didn't try to come right back in. And I don't think that's good either. Maybe I'm just being a glass half empty kind of person.
