Preakness 2011: Oh Yeaaaah!

This is about as an easy a wager as there's ever been for a race, assuming there is one and the world doesn't end prior.  If you don't have your money on #9 Mucho Macho Man, given Friday's sad passing of the great Randy "Macho Man" Savage, then you don't understand what a "hunch" bet is.

Besides the name likeness to Mr. Poffo, he also has a decent resume, and has a much better running style for Pimlico than Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom.  I also like Shackleford again, he ran a big one at Churchill but couldn't quite carry his speed the full 10 furlongs.  Flashpoint is a longshot pick if he can get away from the field like he did in the Hutcheson (Gr. II).
