GI Kentucky Derby winner Mystik Dan (Goldencents), who was confirmed for the GI Preakness S. Saturday by trainer Kenny McPeek, traveled Sunday to Pimlico Race Course and arrived shortly after 4 p.m. accompanied by McPeek’s assistant trainer Ray Bryner.

“No muss, no fuss,” said Bryner. “He’s a really easy horse to be around, not complicated.”

Bryner indicated that the colt’s plans for the week included a Monday gallop over the Pimlico surface following the 8:30 a.m. renovation break.

Set to join Mystik Dan in Baltimore is the Chad Brown-trained Tuscan Gold (Medaglia d’Oro) who will try to award his trainer a third Preakness after Brown won in 2017 with Cloud Computing and in 2022 with Early Voting.

Shipping from California Tuesday will be the Bob Baffert pair of Muth (Good Magic) and Imagination (Into Mischief), who will leave their Santa Anita base early Tuesday morning and arrive at Pimlico Tuesday afternoon.

“They are both doing well,” said Baffert. “I liked the way they breezed; they were a good team. I am happy the way they are coming into this.”
