Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Preakness Field Dependent on Earnings


I’ll Have Another leads all Preakness prospects with $2,060,600 on the graded earnings list, on which the first seven automatically earn a berth in the 14-horse field. Pimlico listed the other prospects.

Bodemeister, Creative Cause and Went the Day Well earned an automatic Preakness start by earning a check in the Kentucky Derby. Hansen, Union Rags and Liaison round out the top seven among those considered possible for the race.

In the second-tier of qualifying, the four horses with the most stakes earnings (minus restricted stakes earnings) are Isn’t He Clever, Optimizer, Hierro and Tiger Walk.

The remaining prospects are ranked by total earnings, including Pretension, Paynter and Zetterholm.

In the unlikely event that all of the above horses are confirmed for the Preakness, Cozzetti and Brimstone Island would be on the also-eligible list.
