The Preakness Stakes

The Preakness Stakes is a thoroughbred horse race for three-year-old horses. Inaugurated in 1873, the Preakness Stakes is held annually on the third Saturday in May. The event takes place at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.

The Preakness is one of three races that comprise the Triple Crown, making up its second leg. It almost always attracts the winner of the Kentucky Derby, a few other Derby horses, and a few more that did not compete in the Derby.  The Preakness is nicknamed “The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans” because a blanket of flowers—Black-eyed Susans—is traditionally hanged around the winner’s neck.

The race is 1 3/16 miles, with the record set in 1985 by Tank’s Prospect (1:53 2/5 seconds). Louis Quatorze (1996) and Curlin (2007) have since tied the record. Secretariat, the 1973 champion, has been credited with equally that time but Pimlico Race Course does not recognize it, as there was a timer malfunction.

Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness Stakes in 2009, becoming the fifth filly to do so (and the first since 1924). Below are the past 20 Preakness Stakes winners:
