The middle jewel of horse racing's Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes is run every third Saturday of May at Baltimore's Pimlico Race Course. Besides a full day of horse racing action, Pimlico's infield hosts a festival atmosphere known as InfieldFest with concerts by music's biggest stars, wagering windows, and copious amounts of beer..
Now in its 142nd edition, the Preakness Stakes is a grade 1 thoroughbred horse race run just two weeks after the Kentucky Derby featuring many of the top three-year-old horses in the world.
Payment for this event reserves your position on a shared roundtrip shuttle from Washington Union Station to Baltimore with a designated driver provided. It also includes a short tutorial on how to read a racing form, hopefully helping you make the best wagers possible.
The fee charged here does not include the cost of the ticket to the Preakness. While InfieldFest tickets will be available for purchase the day of the races, you are encouraged to purchase your own tickets in advance, as prices increase each month. Mug Club, Mug & Vine Lounge, and Grandstand tickets may sell out in advance of the race date. Budweiser InfieldFest tickets can be purchased here. Grandstand tickets may be purchased here.
The fee charged here does not include transit within Baltimore. Please budget $5.90 for transit within Baltimore.
Our meeting point is near Gate G at Washington Union Station at 9:30 am. Departure will take place shortly thereafter. Missing the shuttle is not considered a cause for a refund; please try to arrive early.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Strictly speaking, the minimum age for this event is 18. However, those under the age of 21 may find their ability to enjoy the event more limited. While ID is not required for the shuttle, Pimlico security will check photo ID to verify the age of anyone holding a Mug Club or Mug & Vine Lounge ticket.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
What's the refund policy?
