The Preakness explains his entry today:
“Paddy O’Prado took an unusual route to the Triple Crown races. He made his first start in the Churchill Downs mud last July, finishing a distant seventh. It would be his last trip on conventional dirt until the Derby.
“In between, he made four starts on turf, encountering traffic trouble running second to Dean’s Kitten at Saratoga Race Course, then finishing third to Interactif a month later in the Grade 3 With Anticipation.”
