The field for next Saturday's Preakness seems to be shrinking, with only eight confirmed starters. Entries are due Wednesday and the field is limited to 14.

King of the Roxy trainer Todd Pletcher seemed to indicate yesterday that he is thinking of adding a second starter, but declined to indicate which horse.

Here are the confirmed starters:

* Street Sense

* Hard Spun

* Curlin

* King of the Roxy

* CP West

* Mint Slewlep

* Flying First Class

* Xchanger
