After a six-race winning streak, Alwaysmining – the horse owned by Unionville residents Greg Bentley, the CEO of Exton-based Bentley Systems, and his wife Caroline – is preparing to run in the Preakness Stakes on May 18, according to a report from BloodHorse magazine.
Last week, the energetic, three-year-old gelding returned to training at the Fair Hill Training Center in Cecil County, Md. This was his first workout since the latest in a string of victories. These earned him an automatic berth in the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown at the legendary Pimlico Race Course.
“We’re very happy,” said trainer Kelly Rubley. “I’d say his confidence level continues to improve. My rider thought he was a bit aggressive today, which is great to hear.”
The training was also observed by the Bentleys, who race as Runnymede Racing LLC.
Alwaysmining will remain at the training center for the majority of his Preakness preparations, including a final workout this weekend, before heading out to join the other contenders at Pimlico.
