Mystik Dan Enters Preakness; Triple Crown Possible at Belmont

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND — Mystik Dan, winner of this year’s Kentucky Derby, will compete in the Preakness Stakes, trainer Kenny McPeek announced last Saturday. 

“All systems go,” McPeek told the Associated Press. “The horse is doing fantastic.” 

The decision impacts the upcoming Belmont Stakes at the Saratoga Racecourse. If Mystik Dan is able to pull off another victory at Preakness, he’ll be competing for a Triple Crown in Saratoga Springs this June.

“If we’re looking at a non-Triple Crown year, I would say that the Belmont Stakes is still going to have the buzz and excitement that you see [at] the Travers Stakes,” NBC racing analyst Donna Barton Brothers told Saratoga TODAY last month. “But if you’re looking at a Triple Crown year, then you can take Travers and multiply it by at least two, if not more.”
