Owner George Bolton has had success at the Preakness, taking the title with Curlin in 2007 and Rachel Alexandra in 2009. Astrology didn't race the Derby because of a missed month of training that resulted from an illness last December. The talent is there, and unlike many of the favorites, he enters the race fresh. Astrology has finished in the top three in all seven of his starts, and if he can avoid getting trapped along the rail, he could stay in contention.
