Chase the Chaos completed his trek from Golden Gate Fields close to midnight Tuesday.

“He traveled about 16 hours, but it looks like he handled it good,” Moger said. “He cleaned up his food and he was pretty happy this morning,”

Chase the Chaos earned his fees-paid berth in the Preakness with a victory in the win-and-in El Camino Real Derby on Feb. 11 at Golden Gate, where the Moger stable is based.

Though the gelding disappointed in his next two starts, Moger said he is training well, and his connections decided to bring him to Baltimore. 

“It’s just the opportunity,” Moger said. “We’ve never run a horse in a Triple Crown race, myself or my owners. We’re excited to run. We’re a longshot, but he’s a good horse. We’ll have a chance.”

Maryland-based jockey Sheldon Russell will ride Chase the Chaos, who is 50-1 on the morning line, from Post 2.
