2017 Preakness Stakes Favorite

Always Dreaming remains the favorite, though the early odds have shifted slightly. The opening line was 4-5, but the Kentucky Derby winner is currently being bet at 3-2. Classic Empire, which will break from the gate right beside Always Dreaming, is currently at 5-2.

“He’s generally a very good horse away from the gate,” trainer Todd Pletcher told reporters at the draw. “We’ll just try to come away, establish some position, and see what some other horses are doing.

“He’s training forwardly, agressively, manageably, everything we’d like to see.”

“Hopefully (Always Dreaming and Classic Empire) both have a great trip and break good. It could be interesting. They may go at it right from the start. Classic Empire is fast. All you have to do is look at the Breeders’ Cup. I think people forget about how fast he is.”
