The Preakness Stakes or what is often called "The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans" is normally the second-leg of horse racing’s “Triple Crown” but due to the global 'coronavirus' pandemic, it has now become the third leg in 2020.
The 2020 Preakness Stakes has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 3 and it will now be the final leg of the 2020 Triple Crown.
The race takes place at Pimlico Race Course from Baltimore, Maryland in the United States and features the top three-year-old horses in the world.
Tiz the Law captured the Belmont Stakes in June but the colt came up short to Authentic by 1 1/4 lengths in the Kentucky Derby in September.
Unfortunately, we won't see a highly anticipated rematch in the Preakness as Tiz the Law will skip the event and start training for the Breeders' Cup Classic on Nov. 7.
With Tiz the Law sitting out, Authentic has been made the morning-line favorite at 9/5 odds (Bet $100 to win $180).
