ELMONT, N.Y. - Robert Evans laughed when asked if Tonalist, his Belmont Stakes contender, has been a pleasant surprise. "Anytime you have a horse good enough to run in one of these races, it's a pleasant surprise," said Evans, who owns a 500-acre farm in Easton. He would know. This is his first Triple Crown entrant in almost 50 years as a thoroughbred owner and breeder. On the other hand, his father, Thomas Mellon Evans , owned Pleasant Colony, winner of the 1981 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.

Keepsake memories of Preaknesses past are precious heirlooms, secure in the storehouse of the mind, ready for instant and glorious recall.When those eventful yesteryears come flowing into focus, the Preakness, once more, is off and running. The crowds cheer. The blanket of hothouse daisies, their passive faces painted to create facsimilies of black-eyed Susans, is draped across the withers of the winner. And the infield cupola, painted only minutes after the result, reflects the racing colors of another triumphant owner.

On a day when Pimlico turned surreal, Real Quiet, the crooked-legged horse nicknamed "The Fish," unleashed a run toward history.After a power outage crippled Pimlico, creating bizarre scenes that will long live in memory, Real Quiet ran down Victory Gallop in the stretch to win the 123rd Preakness Stakes . Real Quiet became the second horse in as many years to win the Kentucky Derby and Preakness. And Real Quiet's trainer, the wisecracking Bob Baffert, became the first trainer in history to win the Derby and Preakness in consecutive years.

The morning after a hullabaloo erupted over his sore throat, Preakness favorite California Chrome galloped smoothly over a rain-splattered track at Pimlico Race Course. After his 6 a.m. workout Friday on the wettest track he's ever encountered, the Kentucky Derby winner's connections downplayed his throat condition, revealed Thursday after he coughed in the morning.  "I just want to say that California Chrome is fine,” said assistant trainer Alan Sherman. “His throat is fine.

When Rosie Napravnik ventures to Pimlico Race Course to ride Bayern in Saturday's 139th running of the Preakness, the 26-year-old riding star can expect an emotional homecoming. A familiar face will not be there to greet her. Trainer Dickie Small, who gave her a leg up on her very first winner, died April 4. "There'll be a void at Pimlico," said Napravnik, who guided the Small-trained Ringofdiamonds to victory at Pimlico in her first career ride on June 9, 2005. "When I ride in big races and do well, he's one of the first people I think of. I know how proud of me he would be. " Small's presence will be missed next weekend, but Napravnik can expect a lot of support from family and friends at Pimlico as she attempts to realize a schoolgirl's dream of someday winning the Preakness, as well as the Kentucky Derby.

Joey's earliest memories were mostly "a confusion of hilly fields and dark, damp stables. " But one thing he clearly remembered was the horse sale. "The terror of it stayed with me all of my life," he said. No wonder. Joey was the one being sold. That's how the popular 1982 book "War Horse" by children's author Michael Morpurgo begins. Told in Joey's voice, the story moves quickly from Devonshire in southwestern England, where the horse is lovingly raised on a farm by a boy named Albert, to the hideous battlefields of France in World War I after Joey is sold to the British army for use in the cavalry.

Kentucky Derby winner Orb continues training toward Preakness from the track at Belmont Park. He galloped a mile and a quarter Friday morning for trainer Shug McGaughey, who was happy with what he saw. Orb should arrive in Baltimore by Monday afternoon. The Malibu Moon colt can become the 13thhorse to win both the Derby and Preakness since Affirmed completed the Triple Crown in 1978. Co-owned by Baltimore County resident Stuart Janney III, Orb won the Derby by two-and-a-half lengths, and appears likely to be a heavy favorite in the 138th Preakness.

If indecent exposure laws aren't enough to give adventurous Pimlico infield visitors pause, here's another disincentive: The famous race course lies inside of one of Baltimore's statistical hot spots for gonorrhea. Just in time for the end of national STI Awareness Month (and, unintentionally, in time for the start of the Triple Crown at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday), staff recently added a set of maps to the city's STD page, showing Baltimore ZIP codes' rates for chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis in 2012.

Late Thursday morning, trainer Kelly Breen spoke about his stable's lack of notoriety. "We call it flying under the radar," he said. "You guys might call it lack of respect. We're a small stable. We have some good horses. We've been to the Derby every other year. This is our third one. " On Friday, when his horse, Black Onyx, came up lame after a morning gallop, Breen announced that this would not, in fact, be his third Kentucky Derby. He scratched the winner of the Spiral -- which launched Animal Kingdom toward Derby glory in 2011 -- after X-rays revealed a non-displaced front chip in his front left ankle.

Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I'll Have Another galloped over the track at Belmont on Friday for the first time, about 12 hours after news broke that the colt's trainer had been suspended 45 days . Doug O'Neill is not in danger of missing the final leg of the Triple Crown, as his California suspension - which would likely be upheld by other states - will not begin until some time after the June 9th race. O'Neill was found guilty of racing a horse with a raised total carbon dioxide count in its blood.

The Preakness is, let's face it, the dark horse on the nation's party planning circuit. After all, the second leg of the Triple Crown is squeezed between its more challenging and prestigious cousins, the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes. And, it's held in proudly fashion-averse Baltimore. Nonetheless, there are a few pioneering socialites and trailblazing doyennes living in states such as Kentucky and Pennsylvania and New Jersey. For them, the Preakness' underdog status practically demands a celebration — and the more fancy hats and black-eyed Susan centerpieces the better.
