On Saturday, May 20, Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland will host the 142nd running of the Preakness, the second jewel in the Triple Crown.
Roughly 100,000 people will be in attendance, filling the grandstand and the infield.
Always Dreaming was scheduled to fly there on Tuesday. He’s the 10/11 favorite on the Preakness futures market at press time, leading a pack of nine other horses – five of whom didn’t race at Churchill Downs. Royal Mo (12/1), one of the two “also eligibles” for the Kentucky Derby, has the shortest odds among this fivesome.
The biggest test for Always Dreaming should come from Classic Empire, who managed to finish fourth in the Derby; he’s priced at 5/1 for the Preakness, followed by Lookin at Lee (11/1).
