Oxbow has won the 138th running of the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course, meaning there will be no Triple Crown winner for the 35th consecutive year.
Fans planning to attend The Preakness this weekend will have to make note of the new security policies implemented at Pimlico Race Course.
Since 2000, seven post-time favorites have won the Preakness. There is no doubt that this year’s post-time favorite will be Kentucky Derby winner Orb.
It’s hard to surmise a scenario where we aren’t talking about yet another pending attempt to end racing’s long wait for the twelfth Triple Crown winner after this year’s Preakness.
Enormous crowds are expected for this weekend’s Preakness Stakes and Maryland authorities are encouraging racing fans and party-goers to use MTA’s Light Rail, Metro Subway or the local bus to Pimlico.
