On Monday, the Maryland Jockey Club unveiled the logo for next year's Preakness, the 140th running of the middle jewel of horse racing's Triple Crown. For the 16th straight year, the Leffler Agency designed the logo, according to a news release. "Creating the 140th Preakness logo was its usual challenge in terms of building flexibility for everything from embroidered merchandise and painting on grass to use on HD television," Leffler Agency chief executive officer Heather Connellee said in the release.

Animal, plan it Neil Milbert Chicago Tribune Granted, Animal Kingdom outran a relatively weak field when he made his dirt racing debut and won the Kentucky Derby as a 20-1 long shot. Going into the Derby with six weeks of rest, he proved to be the best and raced the final quarter in a razor-sharp 24.55 seconds. All of that suggests the well-bred colt is capable of a comparable performance at Pimlico — where he will be facing an even weaker field than the one he dominated at Churchill Downs.

After a weekend of calling fellow horse owners "cowards" and "cheaters" for running fresh entrants in the Belmont Stakes, California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn said Monday that he needed to apologize "to the world," including the connections of winner Tonalist. Appearing on "Good Morning America" with his wife, Carolyn, Coburn told host Robin Roberts that "I'm very ashamed of myself. " California Chrome was trying to become the 12 th Triple Crown winner in Saturday's Belmont, but he finished tied for fourth . Tonalist, a horse who skipped the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes because he spiked a fever before the Derby, won a close race over Commissioner, another horse who didn't run in the first two legs of the Triple Crown.

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.

Stewart Elliott chuckled when he was asked the question. Why is winning the Triple Crown so difficult? Elliott, Smarty Jones' jockey in 2004, rattled off a laundry list of reasons why no horse has captured the sport's most prestigious honor since 1978. You need an adaptable horse - one who can adjust to the longer distance at the Belmont Stakes. A horse that can handle running three races in five weeks. One that can handle the hubbub and not get flustered. And a little bit of luck.

Patrice Wolfson is talking about a poster. It's a pretty special poster because it shows her favorite horse racing memory. The poster displays a picture from the finish line of the 1978 Belmont Stakes, Affirmed edging out Alydar for the third time in 35 days. On it are the words, "The Last Triple Crown Winner. " "Sometimes I think that's my name, Mrs. Last Triple Crown Winner," said Wolfson, who co-owned Affirmed with her late husband, Louis. That could change this weekend.

"Since Affirmed in 1978" - it has to be the most overused phrase in thoroughbred racing. And yet it's inevitable every spring, when a new crop of 3-year-olds takes a shot at the sport's most cherished prize - the Triple Crown. Affirmed was the last to do it, 36 years ago, and the ensuing drought has coincided with a long downturn in popularity for racing. The sport's stakeholders have hungered for a new superstar, and a Triple Crown seems the surest way to make one. Which is where California Chrome enters the picture.

This was my fifth consecutive time attending the Preakness Stakes with my husband, sister and brother-in-law. Our seats are located in the Turfside Terrace section of the racetrack. Everything, as usual, was fantastic. All of the employees from security, tellers, waiters and waitresses, bathroom attendants, and I am sure countless others who I failed to mention were great! Special thanks to our Baltimore City police officers. I even got to speak to Maryland Jockey Club President Thomas Chuckas personally that day about a parking issue we had. He listened to my problem very patiently and told me how to resolve it next year when I purchase my tickets.

With the short-lived nasal strip controversy resolved and wins in two Triple Crown races on his resume, California Chrome arrived in Elmont, N.Y., shortly after 11 a.m. on Tuesday, where his connections plan to run the Preakness Stakes and Kentucky Derby champion in the Belmont Stakes on June 7. Chrome, who won the 139th Preakness by 1 1/2 lengths on Saturday, will try to become the first winner of horse racing's Triple Crown since Affirmed...

A man was shot and killed Saturday just a few blocks from the Pimlico racetrack where crowds were gathered for the Preakness Stakes, police said. Officers went to the corner of W. Belvedere and Elmira avenues at 4:30 to investigate a shooting. The victim was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced death about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Police do not believe the incident had any connection to the Preakness racing. Officers were still gathered at the scene a half hour after the shooting, and spots of blood marked the sidewalk and the street.
