"A nice 3-year-old will raise his hand and say, you know, ‘I want to get better and I’m going forward,’ and he certainly gives us every indication that he’s that type of horse," he said.

That could set the stage for a replay of 1988 when the Phipps’ Seeking the Gold, trained by McGaughey, and Claiborne’s Forty Niner squared off. Forty Niner edged Seeking the Gold by a nose in both the Haskell Invitational and the Travers.

"We went through it before with Seeking the Gold and Forty Niner, so it’s not something that I’m altogether not used to," McGaughey said. "Departing is a very worthy participant in the Preakness, and just as we do, they’ve got every right to be there. I hope we both have some good racing luck."
