The Preakness

The 134th running of the Preakness is Saturday, May 16, 2009 at 5:30 cst. As of Tuesday there are just 13 contenders for this second jewel of the Triple Crown. I’m pulling for Mine That Bird, but does he have what it takes to be the next Triple Crown winner?

Although I’m partial to the Derby’s julep, this year I just may try the official drink of the Preakness:

Black-eyed Susan

3/4 oz. vodka
1 1/4 oz. whiskey
3 oz. sweet and sour mix
2 oz. orange juice
garnish with orange slice, cherry, and stirrer
