The Preakness Stakes, first contested in 1873 and called “The People’s Race…The People’s Party,” is one of the largest single-day sporting events in North America and the biggest in the Mid-Atlantic. A record Pimlico crowd of 131,680 and a nationally-televised NBC audience watched American Pharoah dramatically win the Preakness. Three weeks later, the Bob Baffert-trained colt would go on to become the first horse Triple Crown winner in 37 years.

Black-Eyed Susan Day, which this year attracted more than 42,000, is a celebration of the spirit and strength of women and helps to raise awareness for the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and Susan G. Komen Maryland. The afternoon was highlighted by Commissioner’s victory in the Pimlico Special and Keen Pauline’s victory in the Black-Eyed Susan.

InfieldFest has become one of the country's most eclectic music festivals featuring two stages, unique attractions and the popular MUG Club.
