Ria Antonia might run against the boys in Preakness

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Ria Antonia might challenge the boys in the May 17 Preakness Stakes.

"It's going to be a gradual process," her new trainer, Tom Amoss said. "A decision will be made on Tuesday, as to whether or not we are going to do that. That will involve how she trains, how she works and how she comes out of her work. If the decision is to run in the Preakness, it'll be a decision that I also stand behind. I'm willing to take that responsibility because I would not run a horse unless I thought we had a shot to win."

Ria Antonia finished sixth the last time out, in the Kentucky Oaks. The Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies champ was previously trained by Bob Baffert.
