"If it's not I'm going to murder the jockey" stated Dogwood Stables President Cot Campbell about Aikenite. "We're certainly going to tell him that and we have a great rider in Javier Castellano and we're going to tell him to take hold of him when he comes out of the gate and drag him back about 10 lengths off the pace. Then ask him the question at about the half mile pole and hopefully get the right answer."
Dogwood Stable is based out of Aiken, South Carolina and the last time they produced a Preakness winner was in 1990 when Summer Squall won. Aikenite is trained by Todd Pletcher. Bet on the 2010 Preakness Stakes Odds at online racebook BODOG.com.
“He (Aikenite) broke off a couple lengths behind Megaholtz and they finished on even terms,” stated trainer Todd Pletcher after Aikenite worked 5 Furlongs in a Preakness Prep on Monday. “It was a good work, typical of how he works, and he had a solid gallop out. He will walk tomorrow (May 10) and go back to the track Tuesday (May 11).”
