Itsmyluckyday, Goldencents enter Preakness field

Published 1:40am Monday, May 6, 2013

BALTIMORE (AP) — Itsmyluckyday and Goldencents are among five Kentucky Derby also-rans being considered to run in the Preakness on May 18 and take on Derby winner Orb.

Trainer Shug McGaughey said Sunday that Orb will arrive at Pimlico Race Course on May 14.

McGaughey has never won the Preakness in two previous attempts. Easy Goer finished second in 1989, the same result the colt had in the Derby that year.

Itsmyluckyday finished 15th in Saturday’s Derby as the sixth betting choice and Goldencents was 16th as the third choice.

Trainer D. Wayne Lukas said his Derby duo of Oxbow (sixth) and Will Take Charge (eighth) are heading to the second leg of the Triple Crown. Fifth-place finisher Mylute, ridden by Rosie Napravnik, also is a Preakness possibility.

On the list of new horses expected to run in the 1 3/16-mile Preakness are Illinois Derby winner Departing, Sunland Derby winner Govenor Charlie, Fear the Kitten and Bellarmine.
