Preakness Stakes News | Catching Freedom “50-50” To Run

Albaugh Family Stables’ Catching Freedom, the Kentucky Derby (G1) fourth-place finisher, has been upgraded to “50-50” to run in the Preakness Stakes (G1) May 18 at Pimlico Race Course, according to trainer Brad Cox.

The winner of the Louisiana Derby (G2), which is at the Preakness’ 1 3/16-mile distance, had another strong gallop Saturday morning at Churchill Downs under exercise rider Edvin Vargas. Cox said Catching Freedom would need to continue to “train well” to advance to the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown.

“If he goes, I think he’ll go Monday after training,” Cox said of shipping plans.
