When you think Pimlico you naturally think of the Triple Crown and the fabulous world of horse racing. It all begins with Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby. The winner of the derby is suddenly in the spotlight that descends on Pimlico Race Course and the second leg of the Triple Crown, The Preakness. The strength of the Triple Crown is in the incredible diversity it takes for one horse to win all three races. Faced with varying lengths and track conditions it’s extremely difficult for one horse to master.

Pimlico Race Course features The Preakness, a 1-3/16 mile race that is held every year during the Month of May. The Preakness is the shortest race in the Triple Crown and demands pure speed rather than endurance. Pimlico has also been holding The Preakness two years longer than Churchill Downs has been holding the Kentucky Derby, making it one of the oldest races in the country. Be sure to mark your calendar for May and let SportsTravel.com put you in the grandstands of Pimlico for The Preakness, then move on to Belmont to catch the next Triple Crown winner in action.
