Mission Impazible won't enter Preakness

A field of 13 is likely for the 135th Preakness on Saturday after trainer Todd Pletcher said today that he's not bringing Mission Impazible to Pimlico.

"We were on the fence with him and never had fully committed to going," Pletcher said. "We wanted to see how he trained and felt like at the end of the day that he needed a little more time."

The colt finished ninth in the Kentucky Derby and was being considered for the Preakness. Pletcher said the summer goal for the colt is the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park.
