Preakness Stakes fun facts
• The Preakness is named after the horse who won the first stakes ever run in Pimlico when its doors first opened on May 27, 1873.
• The Preakness Stakes is sometimes dubbed "The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans" because a blanket of Viking daisies, decorated to look like Black-eyed Susans, is traditionally placed around the winner's neck. Actual Black-eyed Susans -- the state flower of Maryland -- are not in season during the Preakness.
• The Friday before the Preakness is Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico, where a party atmosphere prevails, including the running of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes for 3-year-old fillies and appearances by notable female jockeys.
• While pre-race celebrations in Baltimore last for days, the actual Preakness Stakes race lasts an average 2 1/2 minutes.
