Win – Always Dreaming
Always Dreaming is the odds-on horse for this Saturday’s Preakness. He’s the number 4 horse, a great starting position. As of writing, Always Dreaming’s morning line odds are 5/6, paying $100 for $100 wagered. That makes him a heavy crowd favorite. He was first at the Kentucky Derby and Florida Derby on April 1, 2017.
Place – Looking at Lee
Looking at Lee is actually one of my favorite horses this season. He’s finished top 3 in every Graded Stakes race since September 17, 2016, when he was second to Not This Time at the Iroquois Stakes. He later finished second again at the Grade 1 Breeders Cup Futurity Stakes to Classic Empire.
Show – Conquest Mo Money
Astute racing fans will know Conquest Mo Money hasn’t actually won a graded stakes event in 2016 or 2017. But he was second to Classic Empire at the Arkansas Derby and second to Hence at the Sunland Derby. He won the non-graded Mine That Bird Derby and Riley Allison Futurity. Clearly this horse can run, though he hasn’t notched a big win just yet.
Alternate – Classic Empire
Classic Empire’s 4th place Kentucky Derby finish was actually a shock. His past performances foreshadowed immense potential, including victories at the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile, Breeder’s Cup Futurity, and Arkansas Derby. He was third at the Holy Bull Stakes on February 4, 2017, behind Irish War Cry and Gunnevera. While Classic Empire sits second behind Always Dreaming, I think he peaked a couple months ago. Maybe the Derby was just an off day? We’ll find out soon enough!
