Looking at Lee, runner-up in the Kentucky Derby, arrives at Pimlico

Three vans transporting five candidates for Saturday's 142nd Preakness Stakes (G1) arrived at Pimlico Race Course within minutes of each other Tuesday afternoon.

A pair of vans carrying four Preakness horses and others targeting stakes on Friday and Saturday passed through the stable gate at 3:40 p.m. Kentucky Derby (G1) runner-up Lookin At Lee was the first to be unloaded from the first van, followed by his stablemate 11th-place Derby finisher Hence. The pair of Steve-Asmussen-trained colts had flown from Louisville, Kentucky, along with Doug O'Neill-trained Term of Art, who had boarded a plan in Southern California earlier in the day, and Kenny McPeek-trained Senior Investment, who were unloaded from the second van minutes later.

The third van that originated from Belmont Park in New York waited several minutes before Chad Brown-trained Cloud Computing could be unloaded.

Brendan Walsh-trained Multiplier is expected to arrive later in the day following a van ride from Keeneland in Lexington, Ky.
