10 horses enter Preakness

May 19, 1994

Kentucky Derby winner Go For Gin will start second from the inside rail at Pimlico in Saturday's 119th Preakness, the second event in horse racing's Triple Crown.

Go For Gin is the only Grade I stakes winner in the field of 10, which includes just four horses that ran in the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago. That's the fewest number to continue on the Triple Crown trail since only four made it from the 1985 Derby to the Preakness.

Also from this year's Derby are third-place Blumin Affair, sixth-place Tabasco Cat and eighth-place Powis Castle.

Tabasco Cat drew the No. 1 post position.

Last horse to win the Preakness without starting in the Derby was Deputed Testimony in 1983. In '85, the four Derby horses in the field finished 1-2-3-4 in the Preakness.
