Rodeo Creek Stables LLC’s Blazing Sevens was led off a Sallee Horse Van at 9:20 Sunday morning at Pimlico Race Course to prepare for Saturday’s Preakness Stakes (G1).

The son of Good Magic left trainer Chad Brown’s Belmont Park base at 5 a.m.
“Good trip, pretty easy ship,” said Jose Hernandez, Brown’s assistant, who met Blazing Sevens at Pimlico. “I flew down and got here almost at the same time as the van. I was parking the car and the van was coming right behind.”
Blazing Sevens last ran in the April 8 Blue Grass Stakes (G1) at Keeneland, finishing third. Even though he had enough points to run in the Kentucky Derby (G1), Brown opted to skip that race and point to the Preakness.
Brown used the same tactics to win the Preakness last year with Early Voting and in 2017 with Cloud Computing.
Blazing Sevens has two wins in six career starts. He is one of three offspring of Good Magic being pointed to the Preakness.
The other two are Kentucky Derby winner Mage and Perform, who won the Federico Tesio at Laurel on April 15. The Tesio is a win-and-in Preakness prep.

Hernandez said that Blazing Sevens will get his first look at Pimlico on Monday when he heads to the track just after 8:30 a.m. to jog.
Two other Brown horses were on the van with Blazing Sevens: Head of Plains Partners LLC’s Up and Down, who is being pointed to the Hilltop Stakes on Friday; and Eminent Victor, owned by Michael Dubb, Elkstone Group LLC and Louis Lazzinnaro LLC and Michael J. Caruso. Eminent Victor is targeting the Gallorette (G3) on Saturday.
Brown is expected to arrive at Pimlico Thursday or Friday.
