Preakness Stakes

The Preakness Stakes (G1) first ran in 1873. The middle jewel of the Triple Crown finds its home at Pimlico Race Course in Maryland and is traditionally run on a Saturday. The race is preceded by the Black-Eyed Susan for fillies and mares on Friday. 

The Preakness Stakes winner is awarded the famous Woodlawn Vase, originally created by Tiffany and Company in 1860, and adorned with a blanket fashioned from Black-Eyed Susan flowers. 

A unique long held tradition of celebrating the Preakness winner is to paint the weather vane that sits on top of the Old Clubhouse copula replica.
