Preakness Stakes Banned Items List

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Fans planning to attend the Preakness in Baltimore this weekend will have to make note of the new security policies implemented at Pimlico Race Course.

A number of items have been added to the prohibited items list after the Maryland Jockey Club consulted with law enforcement and public safety officials following the Boston Marathon bombings.

The lists vary slightly for party goers in the infield and their counterparts watching from the grandstands.
