Can He Win The Preakness?
During some years, the new shooters at the Preakness include some really talented horses that developed a little too late to make the Derby. Other years, we find borderline stakes horses taking a shot at a big prize. Guyana Star Dweej is an example of a borderline stakes horse taking a shot.
Guyana Star Dweej broke his maiden two races back at Aqueduct in his eighth attempt to win his first race. He followed up his maiden score with a second place finish against $75k Optional Claiming horses at Belmont at the end of April.
While there is no doubt that this colt has improved over the last six months, the caliber of horses he's faced in his previous races pales in comparison to the field he'll run against on Saturday. Anything's possible in horse racing but this colt seems way out of his league in the Preakness and he should go to post at huge odds on Saturday afternoon.
UPDATE: Guyana Star Dweej is out of the Preakness due to an injury.
