The Kentucky Derby winner "Always Dreaming" comes to Baltimore to prepare for the second leg of the triple crown.

The American Thoroughbred, who has won four races in a row, flew into Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport Tuesday morning.

Unlike former Kentucky Derby winners, "Always Dreaming" arrived at Pimlico Race Track 11 days before the 142nd Preakness Stakes. The horse's trainers said they wanted him to get adjusted to the track and his surroundings. 

"Always Dreaming" will be out early Wednesday morning for a jog around the track. His trainer, Todd Pletcher, is expected to arrive at Pimlico Wednesday afternoon.
