Preakness Day kicks off with sun and a fast track

Good morning, Baltimore, and welcome to the 139th Preakness Stakes at Pimlico.
It was a sunny 62 degrees at Pimlico when the first race went to post Saturday, with the track in fast condition after Friday morning’s rain soaked the track.
There are 13 races on the card, with the highlight coming at 6:18 p.m. when Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome (a 3-5 morning line favorite) takes his shot at a Triple Crown bid.
Challengers Bayern, Ride On Curlin, Dynamic Impact (all 10-1 morning lines) and Social Inclusion (5-1) all figure to have a say in the 11-horse race.
Check out The Sun’s live blog for running updates, make sure to tip your bet takers, and enjoy the day.
