General Sports Todd Pletcher takes sure and steady approach to Preakness

Is Always Dreaming still the horse that was almost three lengths better than runner-up Lookin At Lee and at least seven lengths better than everybody else?

"It was always our dream to get a horse in a big race, and we're always dreaming in life, not just in horse racing", he said. "It could be interesting". They also have a cheat sheet with a rundown of all the Preakness starters as well as a look at payouts for bets on the Preakness Stakes since 1990.

Well, yes, but by far the nicest appear to be the Todd Pletcher-trained Always Dreaming, victor of the Kentucky Derby, and the 4-5 morning-line favorite for Saturday, and the Casse-trained Classic Empire, reigning juvenile champion and a 3-1 second choice for the second jewel of the Triple Crown. His Derby victory was impressive and marked his fourth straight triumph, all since switching to trainer Todd Pletcher's barn past year.

For one thing, it won't be as crowded in the starting gate.

"I love (them) being side by side, and I like it a lot better that we're outside and he's inside", said Casse.

While lacking the stature of the Kentucky Derby and the possibility of consummating the Triple Crown that the Belmont may offer, those that really know believe The Preakness Stakes is the best race of the Triple Crown. Those colts had won many more major races at this stage so there is just not enough evidence to put the 2017 Derby victor in the class of the 2014 and 2015 Derby winners who, of course, won five of six Triple Crown races. Conquest Mo Money, second in the Arkansas Derby, is expected to challenge Always Dreaming on the pace.

I find that any Kentucky Derby run on a wet track, there's kind of a "yeah, but." narrative that follows.

Which brings us to Classic Empire.

The original favorite in the Kentucky Derby when the initial live odds dropped, Empire finished the first leg of the Triple Crown fourth.

Besides Classic Empire, Derby also-rans back for another try at catching Always Dreaming include Lookin at Lee (second), Gunnevera (seventh) and Hence (11th).

Always Dreaming is the early 4-5 favorite for the race Saturday at Pimlico, where hell break from the No. 4 post.

"If we break running and Always Dreaming doesn't, we may be on the lead". "I would be really surprised if you don't see Conquest Mo Money (post 10) up in the picture early".

Three of the Kentucky Derby holdovers are running for redemption.

Always Dreaming is undoubtedly the horse to beat on Saturday.

Trainer Todd Pletcher shipped him to Pimlico three days after the Derby to give him ample time to acclimate and said the colt could not be happier. First, it has been well documented that Classic Empire was obliterated in the cavalry charge out of the gate at Churchill Downs.

I feel as though the entire parish at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Williamsburg is praying along with us. Of those 48, only three have returned two weeks later to chase the Black-Eyed Susans.

"The two weeks is a quick turnaround, and sometimes you don't know until they get in the stretch and you see what you have in reserve", he said. Conquest Mo Money, second most recently in the GI Arkansas Derby, briefly stood by the rail after galloping two miles beneath jockey Jorge Carreno as training hours began to wind down with the crowd heading toward the annual Alibi Breakfast. "I think he's better than he looked on paper".
