Picking the Preakness: Expect Nyquist, Exaggerator to repeat their Kentucky Derby finish
The Pimlico strip is wet. However, don’t look for Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist to slip up in his bid to win the Preakness on Saturday.
There has been great sentiment that a wet track will benefit Exaggerator, who finished second as the second choice in the Run for the Roses.
It may do that. However, watching some of the early races on the Pimlico card lends one to believe that closing from far off the pace won’t be as simple as Exaggerator found in his splashing romp in the Santa Anita Derby.
So the Preakness picks are:
1) Nyqust 2) Exaggerator 3) Lani.
