Northfield Park is the place to be this Saturday (May 18) for this year’s running of the Preakness Stakes live from Pimlico Racecourse.

Doors open early at 9:30 a.m. and first post at Pimlico is set for 10:30 a.m. Early bird wagering on the Preakness will be available Saturday morning, along with simulcasting action both day and night from over 40 tracks across the U.S., Canada and Australia.
 
There is still time to reserve your private seating carrel and television for your viewing pleasure.  Carrel seats are currently on sale at the grandstand center program stand.  If you arrive early on Preakness Day, join us for a special morning snack of a donut and coffee.  The $1.00 special begins at 9:30 a.m. and will be served while supplies last.

Be sure to join Bob “Railbird” Roberts and our track announcer Ayers Ratliff for a free Pimlico handicapping seminar which begins at 11 a.m.
 
There is a free $2,000 Pimlico handicapping contest beginning with race four with a top prize of $1,000 cash. Northfield Park will also offer prize drawings throughout the day. Just fill out the entry blank you receive when upon entering and deposit it in the contest bin located in the center of the grandstand. Winners will be drawn randomly throughout the day. Thousands of dollars in cash and prizes will be given away including a grand prize of $2,500.
 
Visit Northeast Ohio’s finest food trucks outside on the trackside apron to satisfy your hunger. The trucks 216 Bistro, Barrio, Crooked Kettle Popcorn, Smash Time, Super Hero Food Truck and The Bus Stop will be on-site from 2-7 p.m. offering delicious gourmet food items while you listen to live music by The Benjaminz and Unknown Reason.
 
After the Preakness, stick around for a night of live racing with a first race post time of 6 p.m. while enjoying the great view and buffet from the Lady Luck’s Clubhouse Restaurant. The buffet price is $19.95. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 330-467-4101. Admission and parking are free every day at Northfield Park.
