'Vanilla' Preakness still has intrigue without Derby winner

BALTIMORE (AP) — Hall of Fame trainers D. Wayne Lukas and Bob Baffert sit side by side in the corner of the stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course sizing up the Preakness.

"There's some nice horses in here," Baffert says. "Pretty evenly matched."
