Preakness Stakes Results and Winners

Past racing results and payouts for Trifecta and Superfecta

The Preakness Stakes is nestled in between the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes. It forms the middle race in America’s world-famous Triple Crown series. It’s one of the most popular horse races in America, routinely drawing crowds of well over 100,000 people. This is only narrowly eclipsed by the Kentucky Derby, perhaps the only race that has more recognition.

The Preakness Stakes has played host to some of the most exciting horse races since 1871. “The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans,” as it is known, never fails to disappoint fans. (The race’s designation as “The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans” comes from the state’s official flower, as well as serving as a nod to the Kentucky Derby’s designation as “The Run for the Roses.”) If you are even moderately interested in horse racing, the Preakness is a must-see.

Like the other Triple Crown races, the Preakness Stakes is steeped in traditions and customs. Held in Baltimore, Maryland, at Pimlico Race Course, each race is preceded by a singing of the state’s official song, “Maryland, My Maryland.” Whenever a horse wins a race, the Old Clubhouse has the colors of the winning team’s banner added to it, serving as immortalization of their victory.

The Preakness Stakes is the race that fuels interest in the possibility that a Triple Crown winner could occur that year. If the winner of the Preakness Stakes also won the Kentucky Derby, the Belmont Stakes will become REALLY exciting—only then will that horse have an actual shot at winning the coveted Triple Crown. Laying the foundation for what’s to come, if you have your eye on the Triple Crown, don’t ignore the Preakness Stakes!

Early Voting won the 147th Preakness Stakes, edging out favorites Epicenter and Secret Oath. Although it wasn’t quite the upset we saw from Rich Strike in the Kentucky Derby, Early Voting was still a surprise victor. The win was even sweeter as it fell on owner Seth Klarman’s 65th birthday.

Don’t expect to see Early Voting at the Belmont Stakes on June 11th. His next appearance is slated for Saratoga later this summer.

Preakness Stakes winners

The very first Preakness Stakes did not disappoint. In 1873, the horse Survivor managed to win by a staggering 10-length margin, a record that remained unsurpassed for an astounding 131 years. It wasn’t until 2004 that the horse Smarty Jones beat that by an 11.5-length margin. Such victories are as rare as they are extraordinary; 2020’s victor, Swiss Skydiver, managed a margin of victory of just a head over the runner-up, which speaks volumes about the impressive nature of Smarty Jones and Survivor’s victories.

Veterans of horse racing will undoubtedly remember the spectacular run Secretariat had way back in 1973. The Triple Crown winner set an all-time record of 1:53 at the Preakness Stakes, a record that has never been topped. Notably, this time was only certified in 2012 following controversy over the integrity of the timers used. Following a period of recalibration and back-calculation, the official time was established. As for the most accomplished jockey, that honor belongs to Eddie Arcaro, who managed to snag a grand total of six wins during the 1940s and 1950s.

The table below contains the names and finish times of the winners over the nearly 150-year history of the Preakness Stakes.
