Saturday morning column. Perfect. That’s what I’m meant to do when I flip open my laptop on this steamy Saturday morning. Fair Hill in seven hours, but I’ve got time to write an eloquent, thought-provoking expose on life.

Preakness morning. Rainy morning.

So, where were we?

A lot of water under the bridge (horses over fences) since we last spoke. For me, it was Aintree, Iroquois, Churchill Downs, Claiborne, Calumet, Mill Ridge and Riverdee – either in person or on my computer.

The Kentucky Derby is over. The Iroquois Steeplechase is looming. The Preakness gate is locked and ready. Saratoga is on the horizon.

Time flies.

Post time: 9:00. A long awaited coup about to be unleashed. Gamblers, pundits, fans and scribes wait for the moment. The Saturday moment. The race of the day.
