Preakness Stakes Information:

The Preakness Stakes is a thoroughbred horse race held annually on the third Saturday in May. It’s the second and shortest leg in Triple Crown racing and it’s always held at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. The event has been termed “The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans” due to the way a horseshoe of black-eyed susans (Maryland’s state flower) is traditionally placed around the winning horse’s neck. The race is an American Grade 1 stakes race and the event is 1-3/16 mile. The purse is $1 million.
