he Preakness Stakes -- the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown -- is annually Maryland's biggest sporting event and one of American horseracing's greatest Classics.  It's a national happening that's also a local event.  In this week's Preakness Moments podcasts, we learn from various horseracing folks:

  • what it feels like to ride -- and be injured by -- a Preakness runner;
  • how Marylanders reacted to the last Maryland-bred to win the Preakness, Deputed Testamony in 1983;
  • how it was spending the Preakness with Chick Lang, the legendary Pimlico publicist known as Mr. Preakness;
  • and more!

In this episode: racing radio personality Steve Byk -- a native New Yorker -- recalls the Preakness triumph of another native New Yorker, Funny Cide.
