Trainer Bob Baffert once called the Preakness Stakes the easiest of the Triple Crown races to win. Of course, he said that in a year when he didn't have the Kentucky Derby winner staring at a bit of horse racing immortality.
Baffert knows a little bit about the Preakness, having won it six times. He's also four-for-four when he has taken the Kentucky Derby winner to Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
This time, expectations are sky-high, scaring off most of the horses that ran in the Kentucky Derby almost two weeks ago.
