The starting time is 6:21 p.m. ET.

The Preakness Stakes is the second leg of the Triple Crown. All eyes will undoubtedly be on American Pharoah, who is also favored to win this race. The other horses competing include Dortmund, Mr. Z, Danzig Moon, Tale of Verve, Bodhisattva, Divining Rod and Firing Line. The length of the race measures out to 1.1875 miles.
This is an essential race. If American Pharoah wins the Preakness Stakes, that’ll make the Belmont Stakes an unforgettable event because he’ll be chasing the coveted Triple Crown. However, rest assured, the other horses and their jockeys will be right behind him. Who else is feeling a little bit of anxiety?
