The day after the Preakness, and all horses have turned out well. For the first time ever, the Preakness was a Breeders' Cup "Win and You're In" race. With her win the Alabama, this means SWISS SKYDIVER has a couple of options. Will it be the mile and a quarter Classic? Or the mile and an eigth Distaff?

McPeek said this morning he prefers the extra distance for his filly. "It's a little early and ee don't have to make a decision right now but I do like her at a mile and a quarter. The further, the better. She gets to settle in a nice rhythm and that distancw, I really like better."

McPeek states that he will look at the past performances of the probables as the races draw nearer and make a final decision. The only filly or mare to win the Classic is ZENYATTA at the ge of 5. Could SWISS SKYDIVER be the next Queen Z?
