The weather looks great. The horses have arrived at Pimlico. The Preakness Stakes is ready to go, and the party is on at the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

Doors open Saturday (May 18) at 9:30 a.m., with the wagering windows open at 10 a.m. Post time at Pimlico is 10:30 a.m., and the Preakness Stakes is race 13 with an approximate post time of 6:45 p.m.

The trackside bars will be open at 2 p.m. with all kinds of ice-cold refreshments, including the famous Black-Eyed Susan in a souvenir glass. Fans have plenty of seating options, with a big tent with TV monitors, along with tables and benches on the apron. Dress to impress and bring your friends to enjoy the second jewel of the Triple Crown!

In between the racing action at Pimlico, enjoy a free concert on the track apron starting at 4 p.m. featuring Encorz and The Fellas with a “Tribute to Soultown.” Dance to the sounds of these Motown tribute bands, or just put your feet up and enjoy.

Pacer’s Clubhouse opens at 5:30 p.m. with a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet.

After the Preakness is official, the Downs has a massive live racing card set to go at 7:30 p.m. There will be plenty of excitement on the track all night long, so fans are encouraged to stay and play well into the night.

Advance wagering on the Preakness is available on Friday (May 17), Black-Eyed Susan Day, starting at 11 a.m. Post time at Pimlico on Fridya is 11:30 a.m.
