Next Wednesday is the 25th annivarsary of the greatest hose race I ever saw.  It was the 1989 Preakness as Sunday Silence nipped Easy Goer after an epic battle.  

Since the Preakness is this Saturday, I thought I would re-live this today.

Here is the famous footage is from ABC with Dave Johnson on the call.   

Here is a link to a different version of the classic featuring a fabulous call from veteran horse racing announcer Trevor Denman.

Sunday Silence won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness but as you can see here, Easy Goer got revenge in the Belmont. 

This Satuday, California Chrome looks to take one more step toward becoming the 1st Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
