What is the Preakness Stakes?
The Preakness Stakes or what is often called "The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans" is the second-leg of horse racing’s “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.
Due to the global 'coronavirus' pandemic, the 2020 Preakness Stakes has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 3 and it will now be the final leg of the 2020 Triple Crown. It has yet to be announced if fans will be allowed to attend Pimlico Race Course for the event.
The Preakness Stakes is also well-known as a social gathering for a younger audience with an 'infield party' in the middle of the race course. Due to the virus, officials have canceled InfieldFest 2020 while delaying the race.
