Top Emerald Downs trainer Blaine Wright hits the big time, has contender in Preakness Stakes

Local trainer Blaine Wright, right,  will have his horse Anotertwistafate run in Saturday’s Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course.

Wright appears to be the first locally based trainer to have a horse in a Triple Crown race since 1956, when Longacres of Renton trainer Lloyd Lawson started locally owned Count Chic in the Kentucky Derby and finished fourth.
