Even without Nehro, Preakness could draw 14 horses

Even without Nehro, Preakness could draw 14 horses

There will be no rematch between Animal Kingdom and Nehro at the Preakness.
Nehro, who finished second in the Kentucky Derby behind Animal Kingdom, will skip Saturday's second leg of the Triple Crown and focus on next month's Belmont Stakes.
Nehro's owner, Ahmed Zayat, made the decision Tuesday.
The Preakness is expected to attract the maximum 14 horses. It would be only the third time since 1991 that 14 have run in the race.
With Nehro out, Isn't He Perfect joins the field. Isn't He Perfect has more than $90,000 in earnings but hasn't finished in the money in three stakes races this year.
It will be the first Triple Crown race for trainer Doodnauth Shivmangal, a native of Guyana who is based in New York.
