What is the Preakness Stakes?

The 141st running of the Grade 1 Preakness Stakes comes our way on Saturday, May 21, 2016. The Preakness Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race for three-year-olds held on the third Saturday in May each year at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. It is a Grade I race run over a distance of 9.5 furlongs on dirt. Colts and geldings carry 126 pounds (57 kg); fillies 121 lb (55 kg). It is the second leg of the US Triple Crown, with the Kentucky Derby preceding it and the Belmont Stakes following it. The horse must win all three races to win the Triple Crown.

The Preakness Stakes has been termed "The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans" because a blanket of Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta, the state flower of Maryland) is traditionally placed around the winner's neck. With the exception of the Kentucky Derby, the attendance at the Preakness Stakes usually surpasses the attendance of all other North American stakes races including the Belmont Stakes, the Breeders' Cup and the Kentucky Oaks.

141st Running of the Preakness Stakes (GI)

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.

The phrase "Triple Crown" was not coined until the 1930's, but it is this race on every third Saturday in May where the best Derby horses gather to see if there will be that window of opportunity for a Triple Crown Prospect. Much goes on during this colorful time at Pimlico, but it has always been the horse that draws the fans. As poet Ogden Nash wrote:

"The Derby is a race of aristocratic sleekness, for horses of birth to prove their worth to run in the Preakness."
