Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland will host its 143rd Preakness Stakes today on NBC. The track first opened its doors in 1870. It’s the second oldest horse racing track in the nation after Saratoga in New York.
The Maryland Jockey Club purchased the land for just $23,500 and built the complex for $25,000.
Justify will look to be the first horse since American Pharoah in 2015 to win the first two legs of the Triple Crown today on NBC at Pimlico in the 2018 Preakness Stakes.
