As the field for the 125th running of the Preakness begins to take shape, two trainers--one who'll run at Pimlico, one who won't--are suggesting that Fusaichi Pegasus, the Kentucky Derby winner, won't be able to mail in victories in the remaining Triple Crown races. "I respect [Fusaichi Pegasus], but he's definitely beatable," said Joe Orseno, who'll run Red Bullet on May 20 in the Preakness. "I can't say he's an iron horse. Not yet. We have to try him. He had a perfect trip in the Derby.

It annoys trainer Joe Orseno that his counterpart, Neil Drysdale, is using the slick track as an excuse for Red Bullet's stunning upset of Fusaichi Pegasus in Saturday's Preakness. "The track at Aqueduct was more greasy the day they ran the Wood Memorial," Orseno said. "But we didn't make that our excuse then." Red Bullet was undefeated in his only three starts when Fusaichi Pegasus soundly beat him in the Wood, run April 15 on a track labeled wet-fast.

"Ichi" in Japanese is No. 1, "ni" is No. 2. So Fusa-ichi Pegasus was unofficially Fusa-ni Pegasus Saturday at Pimlico. The first favorite to win the Kentucky Derby in 21 years and the shortest-priced favorite to run in the Preakness since Spectacular Bid in 1979, Fusaichi Pegasus saw his Triple Crown hopes dashed in the dampness and chill of Baltimore, where 98,304 gathered in 59-degree weather for the coldest Preakness in 50 years.

Claiming horses are fashionable. The rage may have started last year with Charismatic, the Kentucky Derby-Preakness winner who could have been claimed twice but wasn't, and it continued with Budroyale, claimed three times en route to $2.8 million in purses, and Early Pioneer, the winner of Sunday's Sempra Energy Hollywood Gold Cup.

The record crowd of 115,318 that was crammed into Pimlico Race Course on Saturday for the 130th running of the Preakness had more than picking winners on its mind. All day long, track officials, state and city politicians and fans were absorbed by the possibility that this might be the last Preakness staged in Baltimore. A fixture here since 1873 -- except for 15 runnings in Brooklyn, N.Y.

These things are known about the Preakness, the second leg of racing's Triple Crown: * Gate-to-wire winners are almost nonexistent. * Last year's winner to the contrary, horses that haven't run two weeks earlier in the Kentucky Derby can usually save themselves the trouble and stay home. * Horses that draw an outside post position, beyond the No. 7 hole, are also up against it. * And favorites are sitting ducks.
