Preakness Entrants listed Tail female family with Their BMSire any stamina Chefs in Their line

More Preakness Data:
Exaggerator was the only KY Derby place horse who won the Preakness in 28 years. However, sometimes I play with stats like that though, as the race this year was unusual and not "formful" in the true sense, so some may consider Epicenter the "winner" for use with historical stats, which would mean Zandon would have no chance in the Preakness, but he's not running so it's a moot point.
