The 142nd Preakness Stakes – the second leg of the Triple Crown – will be run May 20 at Pimlico Race Course.

This year’s crowd set an attendance record of 135,256, despite a day of fog and rain. The drenched throng saw Kentucky Derby runner-up Exaggerator beat the derby winner, Nyquist.

Tickets also go on sale Monday for Black-Eyed Susan Day, which is the day before the Preakness.
