Held two weeks following the Kentucky Derby at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland, the Preakness Stakes is a Grade 1 event with a purse of $1.5 million and is run at a mile and three-sixteenths on the dirt main track. It is well-known as the second jewel of the US Triple Crown of racing that includes the Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes.

The Preakness Stakes dates back to 1873 and is named after the colt Preakness who won the Dinner Party Stakes on the day that Pimlico Race Course opened its doors in 1870. The race has one of the oldest and richest histories of any race in the United States.
