2016 Preakness Replay

Welcome back! We made a decent showing on Oaks and Derby days and are hoping to keep the momentum going. It’s a rainy day at Pimlico but so far it looks like all the turf races are remaining on the turf.

Barry Spears of Derby Wars (@UrbnHandicapper)
Brian Hoffacker of Triphandicapping (@Ghostzapper04)
Chris Hernandez of Giving My Ten Cents (@tencentcielo)

We’ll do a mythical $2 win bet to see who ends up with with most cash, we’ll also keep track of who picks the most winners. Best of luck to all, and be sure to leave your picks in the comments!

  • Yes! The number 8 AND the horse’s name “Laoban” means “boss” in Mandarin Chinese. It’s fate.
