Horse Country Connections: 2023 Preakness Stakes

The middle jewel of the Triple Crown is set to be contested in Baltimore, Maryland today, Saturday, May 20. The Preakness Stakes, set two weeks after the Kentucky Derby, is run at Pimlico Racecourse over a distance of 1 3/16ths miles. 

Seven horses will head to post this Saturday for their chance at the blanket of black-eyed susans and the history books. Kentucky Derby winner Mage is the sole contender from the Run for the Roses to contest the race, and faces six newcomers to the 2023 Triple Crown.

The field for the G1 Preakness Stakes has connections to several of our Horse Country members, and we will be rooting them on this weekend! Post time for the Preakness Stakes is approximately 7:01 p.m. ET, and the race and all pre-race coverage will be streamed live on NBC, and the Peacock app.
