In his first visit to the track over which he will race Saturday in the 148th Preakness Stakes (G1), Bill Dory and Adam Ference’s Chase the Chaos took a couple of get-acquainted laps around Pimlico Race Course Thursday on a nippy sunny morning.

Chase the Chaos made the 16-hour trip from Northern California to Baltimore Tuesday and had a very low-key Wednesday. Trainer Ed Moger Jr. said the gelding went out to the track around 6:45 a.m.
“He was nice and sharp,” Moger said. “He was a little quiet yesterday; he was great today.”
Moger is based at Golden Gate Fields, which is located approximately 14 miles northeast of San Francisco, and Chase the Chaos trains over its synthetic surface. Five of his eight career starts, which include two wins, a second and a third have been on the synthetic surface at Golden Gate.
Chase the Chaos has raced twice on dirt, a win in the mud at Canterbury Downs in his career debut in August and a well-beaten seventh in the San Felipe (G2) at Santa Anita on March 4. Moger said the son of Astern got over the Pimlico dirt surface well.
“He went great. He looked super,” Moger said. “He was kind of looking at the infield a little bit with all the commotion on the infield when he first went around. The second time he was perfect.”
Chase the Chaos won the El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate on Feb. 11 and earned the fees-paid berth in the Preakness. He will be the third winner to compete in the Preakness since the El Camino Real Derby became a win-and-in race for the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown. Anothertwistafate was 10th in 2019 and Rombauer was the winner at Old Hilltop in 2021.
Maryland-based jockey Sheldon Russell will ride Chase the Chaos in the Preakness. Russell watched him train Thursday.
Chase the Chaos will start from Post 2 and is 50-1 on the morning line.
