Push comes to shove, Nyquist looks tough to beat in the Preakness. However, the race before the Preakness is the Dixie Stakes (GII), and this grass race for older horses looks like a far more wide-open affair.
This year’s edition of the Dixie drew a field of thirteen runners, many of whom have a legitimate shot. I sift through the race, and find some solid contenders who will be very nice prices.
Also, as Paul Mazur and I continue to handicap Saturday’s stakes races, we will have a grid with selections for all of those races, available on this page as well.
