Hansen Will Take Pass on Preakness Stakes | BloodHorse.com
Hansen, the 2011 champion 2-year-old male, will not run in the Preakness Stakes (gr. I), his majority owner said May 14.
The colt, owned by Dr, Kendall Hansen and Sky Chai Racing, won the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (gr. I) in November and the Gotham Stakes (gr. III) in March to put him among the favorites for the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I). Hansen, by Tapit , was in striking position on the far turn in the Derby but flattened out to finish ninth.
