Maryland permanent home for Preakness

May 17th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

WBAL reports Tim Ritvo, the COO of Stronach, said Friday tthat the Preakness is never leaving Maryland. "We are always open to discussions with the city and state," said Ritvo. "The Preakness will never leave Maryland, as far as we know, for the control we have on it."

Baltimore City is suing the Stronach Group to keep the Preakness in Baltimore after the group talked of moving the race to Laurel Park. 

This announcement comes the day before the 144th Preakness Stakes and the day of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, when all the horses racing are fillies.

On Tuesday, much of Pimlico Race Course was without water after a water main break caused water to bubble over the asphalt. Crews worked tirelessly over the week to fix the break and the massive holes just in time for the weekend races.
