Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming gets rambunctious

Keeping Preakness Stakes Horses Happy

Trainer Todd Pletcher talks to reporters outside Barn

The NBC Sports app-NBC Sports Group's live streaming product for mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs-will offer a mosaic of four different camera angles, including the NBC broadcast, an isolation camera on Kentucky Derby victor Always Dreaming, an overhead camera, and Larry Collmus' Preakness Stakes race call live as streamed by a camera in his booth at Pimlico.

Kentucky Derby victor Always Dreaming is cleaned by a groom after a workout at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Monday, May 15, 2017. Both colts went on to capture the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, earning divisional titles - and in Charismatic's case, Horse of the Year honors.

Trainer Todd Pletcher stands outside Kentucky Derby victor Always Dreaming's stable at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Monday, May 15, 2017. Jockey Julien Leparoux said he was lucky to remain upright, and trainer Mark Casse said his horse never had a real chance to catch Always Dreaming after that. "Everything we've done with him, he's really, really excelled at".

"Yesterday was a little different environment, [which] maybe had him a little fired up". The troubles he experienced in Florida seem to be behind him now.

On Friday morning, Always Dreaming went out on a saturated track and jogged alongside a pony.

Royal Mo just missed qualifying for the 20-horse Kentucky Derby field, and would have been entered in the race if another horse had scratched. "The first couple of strides, he went to try and buck Nick off and kind of stumbled a little bit when he did it. With the weather that we dealt with and the competition, I'm very proud of my horse for what he accomplished".

"From the point of view of speed handicappers, it was much faster than any 3-year-old in the United States ever has run", Beyer wrote.

That sentiment was shared by assistant trainer Norman Casse, who is overseeing the training at Pimlico.

Even when a horse dominates the Kentucky Derby, there's rarely a shortage of overmatched challengers waiting to test him or her in the Preakness.

After carefully reviewing every aspect of the May 6 Kentucky Derby, I am struck by something that Churchill Downs needs to change. He's more aggressive. He's more on the bridle.

"What we're hoping for", he said, "is that they both get fair trips, they both are eyeing each other at the quarter-pole and they can sort it out down the lane". “All signs show that hes going to run a really good race.”. Does it make for a more fairly run race?

Pletcher said the son of Bodemeister was fine when he returned to the barn and cooled out well from his 1 1/2-mile gallop.

"It's like the tank's filling back up to me", Bush said. "[He'll have an] open gallop tomorrow, for the last three furlongs". It is expected that Always Dreaming will do the same at the upcoming Preakness Stakes, as it often happens that the victor of Run for the Roses becomes the favored contender for the upcoming race at the Pimlico.

Tom and Sandra McKenna, who own Conquest Mo Money, feel the same way about the New York-bred they snagged last November for a measly $8,500 at Conquest Stable's dispersal sale. I expected him to come out of it like he hadn't exerted himself, and I think that that's what he's shown. The track had a good bottom. "He's so calm. He doesn't get too excited about anything".

Post positions will be drawn Wednesday.

In 1995, Wayne Lukas took it another step by keeping his Derby victor Thunder Gulch and third-place finisher Timber Country at Churchill Downs until the Wednesday before the Preakness, then won it with Timber Country and finished third with Thunder Gulch.

As of Monday, the betting favorites were Classic Empire and Always Dreaming. I mean, we were elated with the 14 hole and it ended up being our undoing. In the wake of In Reality's Florida campaign, Harold Genter told sports columnist Robert Markus, of his hometown Chicago Tribune, that his preference was to wait for the Preakness. "Hopefully we get a cleaner trip at Pimlico".
