The Preakness Stakes is set to run this Saturday at Pimlico in Baltimore, Maryland and again, talk will begin about a Triple Crown winner, a feat not achieved since Affirmed turned the trick back in 1978.

[ Article courtesy of where the Super Saver took the Kentucky Derby a few weeks ago, so the question is, will the colt end a 30-something year drought in 2010?

Super Saver was somewhat under the radar at the Run For The Roses but is now tagged by the online sportsbooks as the odds-on favorite at of anywhere between +250 to +225. Besides being the Kentucky Derby winner, there is another reason why Super Saver is favored to win on Saturday - he will be guided by jockey Calvin Borel, who also led Super Saver to victory at Churchill Downs.

Borel himself missed the Triple Crown last year after taking both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes but fell short of the distinction when he and Mine That Bird finished third at the Belmont Stakes. But he is a proven winner and that could bode well for Super Saver and he going into Saturday - the colt drew Post 8 for the Preakness. Borel seems confident in Super Saver as well. “He has the talent to do it,” Borel told the AP when asked about whether Super Saver could do what Affirmed did in 1978. It’s hard to say you’re going to win it, but he’s peaking at the right time.”



But while all eyes are seemingly on Borel and Super Saver leading up to the Preakness, might colt Lookin At Lucky take the win? Lookin At Lucky was the odds-on to take the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs a few weeks ago and going into this weekend’s race, is second only to Super Saver -- Lookin At Lucky is currently listed at +250 for Saturday’s race at Pimlico. is reporting steady action coming in on the impressive colt, and we might even see him go off on Saturday as the favorite if the action keeps coming in this way. Lookin At Lucky drew Post 7 for Saturday’s race, meaning he will run right beside Super Saver.
