- This Saturday, 13 horses will run in the Preakness Stakes, the second race of the Triple Crown.
- Post positions and the morning line were set on Wednesday, finalizing the field for the “Run for the Black-Eyed Susans.”
- After the controversial finish to the Kentucky Derby, the field is wide open, with some familiar faces expected to contend, and a few other horses that skipped the Derby competing as well.
- Country House, who won the Kentucky Derby after a highly-debated review, will not run in the Preakness, meaning there will be no Triple Crown winner this year.

The “Run for the Black-Eyed Susans” will feature 13 horses, with the winner taking home the second of the three biggest prizes in horse racing.
The race will be broadcast on NBC with post time for the race set at 6:48 p.m. ET.
Fans can tune into pre-race coverage on NBCSN beginning at 2:30 p.m. The main broadcast begins at 5 p.m. on NBC and can also be streamed live through the NBC Sports app.
This year’s Preakness won’t hold the tension that previous runnings had, as we already know that the Triple Crown will not be won this year. Kentucky Derby winner Country House is skipping the race, and Maximum Security, who crossed the finish line at Churchill Downs first but was later disqualified, will be skipping the race as well.
The Preakness should still be a thrilling race, with contenders including Improbable and War of Will looking to improve on disappointing runs at the Derby.
On Wednesday, post positions for the race were drawn. Last year, Justify won the Preakness out of post seven.
