Nyquist lived up to his undefeated status, winning the 2016 Kentucky Derby, and now he will go on on to the Preakness Stakes on May 21 to see if he can win the second jewel of the Triple Crown. Right now, it looks like several of the Derby starters are planning to try the Preakness along with a few who are back that dropped out of the Derby to wait for the Preakness. A maximum of 14 horses are allowed to start in the Preakness, so we will have to wait and see if we get there this year.
