What time is Preakness today? Message time, TV channel, horses and more to watch the 2021 race
The second jewel in the Triple Crown is up for grabs on Saturday.
The 2021 Preakness Stakes, which will take place at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, will help determine whether Medina Spirit can become the first horse since Justify in 2018 to win the Triple Crown. Even if the horse wins Saturday’s race, however, this high achievement might not be guaranteed.

It is because Medina Spirit returned a positive test for 21 picograms of betamethasone after winning the Kentucky Derby 2021. Pimlico decided to let the horse race Saturday but, if a second test confirms the first, Churchill Downs will invalidate the Medina Spirit Derby victory and grant runner-up Mandaloun the retroactive victory. The results of the new tests are not expected for several weeks.
Mandaloun is not part of Saturday’s Preakness Stakes race.
Just another mouthwatering treat for punters and sports fans alike ahead of Saturday’s race, which will feature 10 horses and jockeys – including prohibitive morning line favorite Medina Spirit (odds 9/5).
With that, here’s everything you need to know about the issues at Preakness 2021, including the release time and how to watch the event.
