     Sway Away Twelfth In Preakness Stakes  --  Sway Away, trained by Jeff Bonde of Pleasanton, finished 12th in the 136th running of the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course Saturday.  “We enjoyed the festivities, we enjoyed the fanfare, and I liked everyone writing about us, but we failed the test,” said Bonde.
