Watch Legendary Preakness Horse Races, Minutes From Our Downtown Baltimore Hotel


Just a short eight-mile drive from our convenient Inner Harbor hotel, the historic Pimlico Race Course welcomes visitors to take part in the exciting horse races held at the annual Preakness Stakes event.

A tradition originating back in 1868, this middle jewel of the U.S. Triple Crown begins its festivities on the third Saturday in May every year. Generating an average of 112,000 attendees and continuing to grow, Preakness spans over a mile and 3/16, offering scenic views for spectators from all angles. The winner of the stakes earns a prestigious Woodlawn Vase, one of the most valuable trophies in American Sports to date.

As a guest of this renowned race, you’ll find yourself at the edge of your seat from start to finish, watching in amazement as the finest three-year-old horses bolt toward the finish line at exceptionally high speeds. You can even get in the spirit early by checking out the Preakness Week Events, which generally take place up to a week prior.
