Last year, the Preakness Stakes took place this past October and served as the final leg of the Triple Crown due to the schedule being delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. There were no spectators allowed at the event, which was won by Swiss Skydiver.
This year, 10,000 socially distanced fans will be admitted into Pimlico Race Course on Saturday to take in the 2021 Preakness.
Horse racing fans, be sure to tune in a little before 7:00 p.m. ET to ensure you do not miss the Preakness Stakes.
