The Preakness Stakes is coming up this weekend, with a post time of 6:50 p.m. ET on Saturday, May 15. The race will take place at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland and is the second leg of the Triple Crown.

Last year, the coronavirus pandemic caused organizers to rework the three races, with the Preakness Stakes concluding the trio. This year, it is back to the normal spot, following the Kentucky Derby.
