Notes: Brown also entered Tuscan Gold in the Grade 3 Peter Pan Stakes at Aqueduct but made the call Thursday to go forward with the Preakness. … Brown has won the Preakness twice with colts who did not run in the Kentucky Derby and will look to accomplish the feat again with Tuscan Gold. Brown won with Cloud Computing in 2017 and Early Voting in 2022. … Tuscan Gold broke his maiden in his second career start, coming Jan. 31 at Gulfstream Park.

What they’re saying: “My first instinct was to always run in the Preakness,” Brown said. “I wanted to enter the Peter Pan to give myself some options. I wanted to look and survey the field and see who was actually going to show up in the Preakness. … At the end of the day, the reward is so much greater if he were to run well in the Preakness, going for a much bigger prize.”
