Ron Paolucci believes you're entitled to your opinion, but he has plenty of ways to refute the overwhelming sentiment that his 30-1 long shot filly Ria Antonia will be overmatched running with the colts in Saturday's 139th Preakness Stakes. The horse's co-owner will point to the race sheet, which says his horse is the second-highest earner of the Preakness entrants behind Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome, thanks to a November win at the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies. He'll boast that he and his filly don't mind their long odds, because neither horse nor owner cares much about respect.

Forget The Sopranos. Must-see TV last weekend was the Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the most emotionally satisfying Triple Crown series in years. A combination of excellent equine athletes, colorful supporting players and the sheer unpredictability that is horse racing produced a show that gave the sport so important to Maryland a shot in the arm. And, OK, this isn't really about girl power - except perhaps in the most literal sense. But when Rags to Riches dueled Preakness winner Curlin through the Belmont's closing stretch to become the first filly to win the mile-and-a-half classic in 102 years, the nearly three decades without a Triple Crown winner suddenly didn't seem to matter so much.

Mounted next to Stall 40 in the Preakness Stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course is a three-foot plaque emblazoned by black-eyed susan flowers. Each year, Stall 40 houses the Kentucky Derby winning thoroughbred, and the adjacent wooden sign commemorates the horses that ended their stay at Pimlico with a Preakness victory. If trainers were immortalized on the plague, John Servis would find his name near the bottom, next to one of the latest celebrated horses. Ten years ago, Servis trained Smarty Jones to wins in the 2004 Derby and Preakness before just falling short of claiming the Triple Crown with a second-place finish at the Belmont Stakes.
