Preakness

Preakness Day

May 21, 2016

On a late summer evening in 1868, an agreement among sportsmen to stage a special race to commemorate a memorable occasion became the foundation for the middle jewel of racing's Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes.

The Preakness Stakes has remained throughout history a true test of a horse's ability and class, a race where remarkable horses meet one another in a great classic.

Preakness Alibi Breakfast

May 19, 2016
In the late 1930s on the porch of historic Pimlico's Clubhouse, a group of trainers gathered most mornings to tout the merits of their horses or give alibis as to why their horses were not competing so well. Today's Alibi Breakfast is a successor of these original gatherings where trainers, jockeys and owners of Preakness horses give unique insight to racing fans and media about the Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown and what it takes to possibly become Thoroughbred racing's next greatest legend.
