Preakness favorites joined in the starting gate

They know Always Dreaming is capable of winning in a number of ways, including from off the pace or leading, and they also know their horse wants to run.

"If I could draw it out, Always Dreaming would go full tilt and him and Conquest Mo Money go at it for about three-quarters of a mile, and we sit behind them and watch", Casse said. "It could be interesting". He was clobbered at the start, lost position early while being shuffled back, rallied wide, and emerged from the race with minor cuts on his legs and a swollen right eye.

Five Oaklawn-raced horses are scheduled to be entered for the second leg of the Triple Crown, the $1.5 million Preakness Stakes (G1) Saturday at Pimlico, including Classic Empire, Conquest Mo Money and Lookin At Lee, 1-2-3, respectively, in the $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1) April 15.

The closest thing to a controversy happened before the Derby, when Pletcher changed exercise riders and added draw reins to Always Dreaming's morning workouts.

Always Dreaming's odds will be wholly unappealing but he's a threat to make it five straight wins and walk into the Belmont Stakes with a shot at joining a select few by winning the Triple Crown. Only 12 horses have managed the feat, the most recent of them American Pharoah in 2015 to end a record drought that had lasted since 1978. The Preakness Stakes is a 1-3/16 mile affair and will feature 10 runners including Kentucky Derby victor and morning line favorite Always Dreaming.

For the trifecta, I'll play it with Classic Empire keyed in the first position with Gunnevera, Conquest Mo Money, and Always Dreaming boxed in the second and third position.

Classic Empire likely will be the second choice behind Always Dreaming, owing to his overall form - including being the 2-year-old male champion of last year - combined with a brutal trip in the Derby.

The morning line established Always Dreaming as an odds-on favorite at 4-5 to win on Saturday. “If we cant win, I want Always Dreaming to win because this sport is so important to me.

At the Derby, Todd Pletcher, trainer of Always Dreaming, conceded that "the start of the race compromised a number of horses". "I think we'll be back here next year, I really do".

Hence never really showed me much, but the beat pundits loved him at the Derby.

Three of the Kentucky Derby holdovers are running for redemption. He went on to finish second in the Preakness and third in the Belmont.

"The horse is doing unbelievably well in the two-week turnaround", Pletcher said, via He is not just cheap speed to push Always Dreaming.

Gunnevera, Lookin At Lee, and Hence all have raced four times this year, as has Always Dreaming.

"As far as I know, he hasn't taken it off", Bonomo said. I guess they felt the three weeks in between the Arkansas Derby and the Kentucky Derby was too small of a window. Casse claims Classic Empire is "fired up and ready".

The pace of the race is going to be dictated by the #10, Conquest Mo Money, and the lightly raced Multiplier, victor of the Illinois Derby, who will break from the rail.

Third Confederate monument taken down by New Orleans
Speculation began to surface Thursday that the the final monument, the one of Lee, would come down sometime Thursday into Friday. Local media displayed images of monument supporters waving Confederate battle flags while the opponents stood nearby peacefully.
