Jockeys just go along for the ride, right? Not quite. A great jockey can elevate the horse's ability. An average jockey can make a great horse look, well, average.

That's not the case this Saturday. A lot has been made of the horses in the Preakness Stakes and, let's face it, they do most of the work. Still, they need a pilot and not all pilots are created equal.

We've seen jockeys bring home long shots, but in recent history the Preakness is chalk, chalk, chalk.

A confident jockey with a live horse is about as lethal a combination as peanut butter and chocolate. And, as you'll see, this group of riders is no different.

The following jockeys are listed in post position order, from the outside in. Jockey stats come courtesy of Equibase and Preakness.com.
