Animal Kingdom clearly had the speed and the will to win the Preakness, but the jockey Johnny Velasco, held him back too long.  He misread the "pack" speed midway through the race, and started his surge much too late.  I don't mind seeing a horse lose, I hate seeing a better horse lose because of a poor performance by the human aboard...

There certainly is not a Secretariat out there right now, but we could have had a Triple Crown winner...

Just DANG it...
