Maryland Million set for October 24
LATEST MARYLAND NEWS
Though there’s been no Maryland racing in two months, trainer Claudio Gonzalez has kept stakes winners Lebda and Princess Cadey home.
Preakness 145 will take place – as rumors had suggested – October 3 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
The date for Preakness 145 will be unveiled Saturday on NBC as part of a two-hour – half-online, half-TV – celebration of the Middle Jewel.
It does not include live racing dates, but in a positive sign for the return of racing, Laurel Park has released a condition book for its return to action.
With a stunning 46-1 upset in the Oaklawn Stakes earlier this month, lightly regarded Mr. Big News made headlines himself and earned a spot in the Preakness.
Stronach Group exec Craig Fravel, in an interview with NBC Sports, said Wednesday that the Preakness might end up running prior to the Kentucky Derby.
