About The Event

Preakness Alibi Breakfast

Preakness Alibi Breakfast

It started with a cup of coffee.  In the late 1930’s on the porch of the historic Pimlico Clubhouse, a group of trainers, owners and greater and lesser dignitaries would gather in the mornings to tout the merits of their horses. Today’s Alibi Breakfast is a descendant of the original gathering at the Old Clubhouse, featuring media, owners, trainers, jockeys and horsemen celebrating Preakness. 

The annual media and awards breakfast has also become an opportunity for the Maryland Jockey Club to recognize those who have made significant contributions to the racing industry and to solicit intriguing race predictions from the connections.
