Pim: Fri. scratches

Email

There are quite a few key scratches on the 13-race marathon - though none on the Preakness eve feature, the Black Eyed Susan Stakes (race 12) - that we'll have here today at Old Hilltop, where the sun has been out sporadically and where temps are supposed to hit the mid-80s later today. The weather for tomorrow, by the way, is supposed to be spectacular: breezy, highs in the mid-70s, no chance of rain. Perfect for the 135th Preakness.

The Lady Legends (race 4) should be quite interesting . . . hope you have a chance to watch.

Also, a reminder that there's the two-day, $2 Black Eyed Susan-Preakness double available today.

Fast track, good turf. First post is earlier than usual, 12:15 p.m. ET. Tomorrow, we start at 10:45 a.m. ET.
