We asked some of our Churchill Downs trainers who they think will win Saturday’s Preakness Stakes….

Tom Bohannan (trained Preakness winners Pine Bluff, ‘92 and Prairie Bayou, ’93): “I miss not being at Pimlico with a good horse. Always Dreaming is the one to beat.”

“Buff” Bradley: “Always Dreaming looks tough. I’ve liked him since I first saw him this winter in Florida but got off him for the Derby because of how aggressive he was training.”

Pat Byrne: “I think it will be tough to beat Always Dreaming. I think the way that he won the Derby that horse has a legitimate chance to win the Triple Crown.”

Brad Cox: “Always Dreaming will be tough to beat. I thought Cloud Computing looked good in his training but I don’t know how far he wants to go.”

Mark Danner: “As soon as I saw Always Dreaming train I knew he would be tough to beat. He’s full of energy. I think he’ll win again.”

Greg Foley: “Always Dreaming and Classic Empire look to be the horses to beat but we’ll be rooting on (Kenny) McPeek’s horse (Senior Investment). We have his 2-year-old full sister that Tamaroak Partners purchased that is coming to our barn next week.”

Wes Hawley: “Always Dreaming is the one to beat. Classic Empire should improve and even Lookin At Lee deserves another shot.”

Dale Romans: “Todd (Pletcher) will be tough to beat with Always Dreaming. He’s a good guy so I’ll be cheering him on.”

Mike Tomlinson: “I don’t think I could bet against Always Dreaming.”

Ian Wilkes: “I think Classic Empire will sit a closer trip. Conquest Mo Money will probably have to go from the outside post so it will be interesting how close Always Dreaming is to the pace.”
