Preakness Stakes: The Greatest Trainers in Preakness Stakes History

D. Wayne Lukas And Bob Baffert Have 11 Preakness Wins Between Them

D. Wayne Lukas And Bob Baffert Have 11 Preakness Wins Between Them, But Robert Wyndham Walden From The Late 1880′s Had Seven Of His Own

How about California Chrome, who has now won both the 2014 Kentucky Derby and 2014 Preakness Stakes – just one more win to go at the Belmont Stakes June 7th for the coveted (and extremely rare) Horse Racing Triple Crown.

Art Sherman, Chrome’s trainer, has snagged his first wins of the first two legs of the Crown.

We’ve already checked out trainers with multiple wins at the Kentucky Derby.

Today, it’s the Preakness Stakes’ turn. R.W. Walden from the beginning days of the race (the first was in 1873) won seven. He’s tops, followed by two guys you probably know, or at least have heard of, if you have a pinky in racing: D. Wayne Lukas, who won last year, has six Preaknesses to his credit and Bob Baffert, who won not long ago in 2010, has five, tied with Thomas J. Healey.
