Pimlico Race Course comes alive every year for Preakness Stakes weekend as the spotlight of the Thoroughbred racing community shifts focus to the historic Baltimore, Md. venue. The 148th edition of the Preakness Stakes, the middle jewel of the U.S. Triple Crown, is the marquee event of the weekend on Saturday, May 20. Entertainment for Preakness Live was top-notch, featuring Bruno Mars, SOFI TUKKER, Zack Bia, DJ Chantel Jeffries, Martin 2 Smoove, and local artist DJ Quicksilva. The weekend at Pimlico also featured on Friday the 98th edition of the George E. Mitchell Black-Eyed Susan Stakes.
