The Preakness lacks intrigue, a new PGA champ and more

Fat Guy Corner

The Preakness did not provide an 80-1 to bomb winner like the Kentucky Derby horse Rich Strike. The Preakness winner was a 5-1 shot Early Voting who prevailed by defeating the favorite Epicenter who was 7-5.

No Triple Crown winner and a look at NHL and NBA playoffs

Fat Guy Corner

The Preakness Stakes runs this Saturday, and we will have no Triple Crown winner in 2022. The Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike has withdrawn from the race. Owner Rich Dawson wants the horse to have ample rest before its next race. I personally hate Dawson’s decision to skip the Preakness. I wanted to see if the last race was totally […]

A look at the history-making Kentucky Derby

Fat Guy Corner

The Kentucky Derby shocked the horse racing world with an 80-1 longshot winner Rich Strike. In horse racing anything is possible. This is why the race is won on the race track and not on paper in the racing form. I can tell you, I was at a race track watching the race with a big crowd of people. The […]
