Entries were taken yesterday for Pimlico’s Saturday Preakness Day program consisting of 12 races, all stakes, beginning at 10 a.m. The Preakness Stakes attracted 11 entries with Authentic , winner of the Kentucky Derby, drawing post 11 as the 9/5 morning line favorite. Art Collector, who bypassed the Derby due to a heel injury that developed during training, is 5 to 2 and breaks from post three.

A change for 2020, aside from the obvious date difference, is the normal Friday fixture, the Black-Eyed Susan, being run on Saturday. The Canterbury Racebook opens at 9am on Friday and at 8am on Saturday. Reservations, for which there is no charge, are recommended and can be made HERE.

Keeneland opens its Fall meet Friday. Hawthorne opens Friday. Keeneland, Belmont and Santa Anita all have significant stakes races Saturday along with Pimlico.
