Can Cherry Wine pull off the upset?
He should be considered as one of the darkhorses to win the Preakness, yes. Why? Because he's seemingly coming into his own at the right time. He won back-to-back races by a combined margin of 15 1/4 lengths before finishing fourth in the Grade 2 Rebel Stakes and third in the Grade 1 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes. He was beaten by just a head in the Blue Grass, which subsequently cost him a spot in the Kentucky Derby. He's at least a sleeper to finish in the money.
