Trainer Chad Brown, a two-time winner of the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown, said it was very likely that he would ship the Good Magic colt from Belmont to Baltimore on Sunday. 

Blazing Sevens has worked four times since he finished third in the Blue Grass Stakes (G1) on April 8 at Keeneland. Brown and the owners opted not to run in the Kentucky Derby (G1) to prepare for the Preakness.

It is similar to the path Brown followed with his Preakness winners, Cloud Computing (2017) and Early Voting (2022).

Brown used one word, “excellent,” to describe the work, the fastest of 11 recorded workouts at the distance. 

“Irad Ortiz came out and worked him,” Brown said. “He’s ridden him once and had never worked him before. I just wanted a little bit more experience between the two of them together. The horse worked super.”
