Preakness Stakes: Mylute confirmed as part of field
By Marty McGee
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Trainer Tom Amoss confirmed Mylute as a starter for the 138th Preakness after the gray colt went through a routine gallop well before dawn Saturday over a muddy and harrowed track at Churchill Downs.
Amoss said he is satisfied with how Mylute came out of his fifth-place finish in the Kentucky Derby and that after consulting with the colt’s owners, they have agreed to run in the Preakness, which is set for next Saturday, May 18, at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
Mylute is owned by the Gold Mark Farm of T. Paul Bulmahn and the Whisper Hill Farm of Mandy Pope.
Amoss said Mylute will be on the Tex Sutton charter flight that will transport many of the Churchill-based horses to Baltimore early Wednesday. He added the colt most likely would breeze Monday at Churchill, although that is dependent on weather and track conditions.
Mylute will be ridden again by Rosie Napravnik in the 1 3/16-mile Preakness. The colt was beaten just two heads for third by Revolutionary and Normandy Invasion in the May 4 Derby at Churchill. He received a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of 99.
Orb won the Derby by 2 1/2 lengths and is expected to be a solid favorite in the second jewel of the Triple Crown.
ORB, goes to the Belmont with a chance for the Triple. Sure would like him to take both!
Ragozins back him as a contender. More than likely not on top but very solid chance at late involvement. Not opinion, evidence.
Outside chance. He did finish well in Derby but hung a little. Did have a bad trip first half. Maybe.
Mylute was crowded at the start and was forced to steady. With a smaller field and a dry track there should be lots of running room.
Rosie gives this horse a Exotics chance. I will add
My Lute would have had better shot in the derby with Shaun.
Shaun rode 5 straight winners at Churchill yesterday for 5 different trainers.
Mylute has a good chance with no mud was my Derby longshot pick before the muddy cousrse
The owners of Mylute have all the right to try the Preakness are they suppose to just let Orb run by himself thats why they have long shots an Rosie started her career at Pimlico.
Oh great, now I am going to have to hear about Rosie all week.
