Horse Born In Capital Region Entered In Preakness
SPECTRUM NEWS VIDEO: In Saturday's Preakness Stakes, many racing fans are wondering if Always Dreaming can capture one more jewel on his way to claiming the sport's second Triple Crown since 2015. As our Matt Hunter reports, trying to stand in his way is Conquest Mo Money, a colt who was born in the Capital Region. The colt, who’s trained by New Mexico-based Miguel Hernandez, has finished second in each of his past two races, getting passed just before wire by Classic Empire in April’s Grade 1 Arkansas Derby. The runner-up finish was good enough to earn Conquest Mo Money a spot in Saturday's Preakness Stakes, where he'll try to become just the second New York-bred since Funny Cide to capture the second jewel of racing's Triple Crown.
