Preakness Stakes Travel Package

Tickets to the Preakness Stakes are sometimes a little overlooked compared to the prized Kentucky Derby tickets and Belmont Stakes tickets, but the middle leg of the Triple Crown has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years and now is generally considered to be on even footing with those other two races. Just a few years ago more than 121,000 people turned out at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore to set an all-time attendance record for the event. If you want to be there for the next running of the Preakness, SportsTravel is ready to help make that happen with one of our Preakness packages. Our Preakness travel packages include everything you need for a weekend of racing: Preakness tickets, hotel reservations and ground transportation to and from the track. Our 2018 Preakness packages also include several extras that you won’t find anywhere else.

The Preakness Stakes has been run since 1873 and it’s one of the few races in America to be contested at the distance of 1 3/16 miles. Over the last few years it has featured some incredible finishes and dominating performances from the likes of Funny Cide, Smarty Jones, Afleet Alex, Curlin, Big Brown and Rachel Alexandra, who became just the fifth filly to win the race with a stirring victory over Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird. The winner of the Preakness Stakes gets the coveted Woodlawn Vase, which is the most valuable trophy in all of sports (even more than the Stanley Cup). The Woodlawn Vase was made in 1860 and has been valued at more than $4 million and it used to be given to the winning owner to keep for the year until the next Preakness. Although the winner only gets a replica now, you can still see the original Woodlawn Vase on display at Pimlico.

If the Preakness is not enough horse racing action for you, then be sure to check out our Kentucky Derby packages, Belmont Stakes packages and Breeders’ Cup packages.
