Preakness Day dawning as wet as feared as it rains steadily with forecast saying it will continue. Expect sloppy as opposed muddy as it doesn't look like there will be a 'drying out' track scenario. Grass portion of the card is destroyed with only the Gallorette staying on the soft turf. Let's try to make the best of it and get them all around safe here and everywhere today.
