Does anyone know where to get the results of the Preakness? One of my aunts had a horse entered ,I'm trying to find out how it did.

Unless she owns War Emblem (she doesn't), I wouldn't worry about it LOL

That said, I got these results from ESPN.com:
1st place: War Emblem
2nd: Magic Weisner
3rd: Proud Citizen

Also ran: 6 - Harlan's Holiday , 7 - Easyfromthegitgo , 1 - U S S Tinosa , 4 - Crimson Hero , 5 - Medaglia d'Oro , 3 - Straight Gin ,11 - Menacing Dennis , 9 - Table Limit ,10 - Booklet ,13 - Equality

Wow,that's pretty cool,she trained Magic Weisner,2nd place,I'm really surprised-the horse was a 40 to 1 shot,maybe it will be going to the Belmont now.Thanks for the results.

I hope War Emblem wins the Triple Crown..that would be cool.

Did it race in the KY Derby?

War Emblem definitely is the class of the field, but not by much. I wouldn't count on him winning the Belmont.

Silver Charm, Real Quiet, and Charismatic were supposed to be all that...Maybe War Emblem will win because he's not expected to...heh...

OK now Magic Weisner is in the Belmont,11th pole position,running next to War Emblem at 15-1 odds.This is going to be a major upset-no Triple Crown this year.

The weird thing is, these horses have been optimized. I bet they wouldn't survive long enough if put onto a couple hundred acres of plains with some predators and other dangers to reproduce.

Perhaps they don't even rate too well on Horsey attractiveness... after all, the breeders simply chose the fastest.
Thus, those with the lightest bodies and the most muscle per body weight got to be Race Horses. A short fall will break one of these thing's bones and I doubt one would have the cuning to evade predators in a pack.

And this has what to do with the thread?

And what about using the horses for anything except racing?

They've been trained not to be skeered too easily, and to respond to the rider instantly... but they're way too frail to be war horses!

Too breakable to do any labor.

Too stupid to be in a circus be the Counting Horse.
