With fans returning to Pimlico for the 2021 Preakness Stakes May 15 , the festive atmosphere returned to the Baltimore racetrack for the most anticipated day of racing of the year in Maryland.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the race to be postponed until October and to be held without fans in attendance, but there was a sense of normal back at the racetrack for this year's edition with live music and great racing leading up to the second jewel of the Triple Crown.
Eclipse Sportswire was on hand to capture in images some of the highlights of Preakness day in Baltimore.
