Muth, Imagination Have Final Preakness Works

Imagination and Muth (rail) | Benoit

Each slated for a tilt in Preakness 149 May 18, MGISW Muth (Good Magic) and GSW & GISP Imagination (Into Mischief) worked six furlongs in company Friday morning at Santa Anita.

Officially clocked in 1:11.90, Bob Baffert liked what he saw from the pair and mentioned he was still deciding if any other horses would join his Preakness hopefuls on the trip over to Pimlico, but that he'd wait until entry day to make a final decision. If everything goes to plan, both are scheduled to ship to Baltimore Tuesday, May 14.

“[Muth and Imagination] looked good. They stayed together like last week. It was a nice, workmanlike work. I was happy with it.”

Said move May 4 was clocked in 1:11.40 and the co-fastest of five on the morning. Muth comes into the GI Preakness S. off a victory in the GI Arkansas Derby and was the 7-2 favorite for the second jewel in last weekend's Preakness Stakes Future Wager while Imagination closed at 17-1. The latter was beaten a neck in the GI Santa Anita Derby by GI Kentucky Derby-seventh GISW Stronghold (Ghostzapper).

The post position draw for the Preakness is Monday, May 13 at 2:30 p.m.
