The Alibi Breakfast is a Preakness tradition dating back to the 1930s. It has evolved over the years into a chance for fans and connections to rub elbows while trainers crack jokes and make predictions about the weekend's race. The event has expanded to include a handful of awards for industry and media members, as well as interviews in which trainers explain why their horse will take home the Woodlawn Vase (or providing reasons they may not).
This year, discussions centered around two things: the race's pace scenario, which is likely to be a hot one, and equine personalities. Find out why trainer Keith Desormeaux feels Exaggerator is ready for a big effort two weeks after the Kentucky Derby, whether Doug O'Neill thinks Nyquist is better than I'll Have Another, and what Lani's trainer thought of the colt's behavior and performance leading into the first Saturday in May.
