Why Nehro should run in the Preakness
By his admission, the horse he owns "couldn't look any better," but Ahmed Zayat won't be running Kentucky Derby runner-up Nehro in the Preakness Saturday. So he owns a horse that is in perfect health and would be the second choice in a $1 million event that happens to be one of the most prestigious races in the world, but the colt won't be leaving his stall Saturday afternoon. Welcome to modern horse racing, the sport that has gone insane.
