The Preakness Stakes serves as a launchpad for the biggest horse racing excitement of the year or it muffles the excitement for the casual horse bettor.
Just two weeks after the Kentucky Derby has crowned its champion, horses gather again in at Pimlico Racetrack in Maryland for the second jewel in the Triple Crown. If the same horse wins again, it sets in motion three weeks of major hype around the Triple Crown (which is run weeks later at Belmont in New York).
