This year several of the Preakness horses were already at Pimlico on Tuesday morning and five others arrived by van Tuesday afternoon. Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming arrived on May 9 and was the first on the grounds, along with the now injured Royal Mo, and several others have trickled in since. Only one horse was left to arrive this afternoon, Multiplier, and he was expected sometime Tuesday evening on a van from Keeneland.

Trainer Todd Pletcher was delighted to report Tuesday morning that everything went according to plan when his Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Always Dreaming galloped 1 1/2 miles at Pimlico Race Course. Always Dreaming was on the track at 5:30 a.m. with exercise rider Nick Bush for his daily exercise and was better behaved than on Monday. Pletcher said, "I'm really, really pleased with the way he went this morning. Everything went very smoothly good energy. good controlled gallop, just moving really well," Pletcher said. "It was, as they say, 'exactly what we were looking for.'"

Classic Empire chilling in his stall on Tuesday afternoon. He got acquainted with the Pimlico racetrack Tuesday morning while jogging a mile and galloping a mile. "I thought he was really awesome this morning. I'm always a little apprehensive the first time a horse goes out to a track, especially when you come to a place like Pimlico that has a bunch of tents and a lot of things to look at," said Norman Casse, the son and chief assistant to trainer Mark Casse. "A lot of times, he can be a little lackadaisical, but he was on the bridle. He looked really good. He had a lot of energy and more importantly, he was moving really good, looking really smooth. All of those are positive signs."
