BALTIMORE, MD (WUSA9) - The 142nd running of the Preakness Stakes will feature five horses coming off the Kentucky Derby and five fresh for the middle jewel of the Triple Crown.
Derby winner Always Dreaming was enjoying celebrity status at Pimlico as fans stopped by for a quick look or a picture. He's the favorite to win Saturday.
Conquest Mo Money hopes to be hot on his hooves.
The horse is owned by cattle farmer turned race horse owner Tom McKenna.
McKenna bought the horse for little of nothing, but is pleased with his value, calling him a "gift from God."
"Mo Money's worth the money. Got him pretty cheap. Hundreds of people at the same sale," McKenna said.
