Barbaro injured, Bernardini wins the Preakness
I’m stunned. First Barbaro broke the gate early. Then shortly into the race he pulled up lame. Bernardini was an 11:1 shot but managed to win convincingly. Mark Belling’s alternate pick, Sweetnorthernsaint, looked like a decent bet at 8:1, but the horse led too early and faded, ending a distant second. Hemingway’s Key at 22:1 really had no chance but makes the trifecta value shoot up finishing third.
I saved myself $50 by not making it to the track.
