Vyjack won't run in Preakness Stakes
There will be no Preakness for Vyjack, who finished 18th in the Kentucky Derby.
David Wilkenfeld, who grew up in Hewlett Harbor, owns Vyjack, who was 4-for-4 before finishing third April 6 in the Wood Memorial, his final Derby prep.
The withdrawal leaves nine likely entries -- Kentucky Derby winner Orb, Mylute, Departing, Oxbow, Goldencents, Itsmyluckyday, Will Take Charge, Titletown Five and Govenor Charlie. If nine run, it will be the smallest Preakness field since 2007, when Curlin beat eight opponents.
