The Preakness undercard features seven other stakes races, including four graded races. The purse for the Dixie Stakes (G2) has been increased from $200,000 to $300,000 and the Gallorette Handicap (G3) goes from $100,000 to $150,000.

The May 18 card features eight stakes races, six for fillies and mares, highlighted by the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (G2) for three-year-old fillies. The purse for the Black-Eyed Susan was increased to $300,000. The Preakness eve card also includes the return of the historic $300,000 Pimlico Special (G3), which has run just once since 2007. The Special replaces the William Donald Schaefer Stakes in the stakes lineup.

“Having a strong stakes schedule at Pimlico is important,” said Maryland Jockey Club president Tom Chuckas. “The return of the Special combined with the purse increases for the Black-Eyed Susan, Dixie and six other stakes races over Preakness weekend improves our profile. We are working hard to make the other races desirable to the horsemen and bettors. Increased purses will hopefully lead to larger fields and more wagering.”

One other modification is that the name of the Federico Tesio Stakes has been changed to Canonero II, after the 1971 Preakness winner.

The Pimlico spring stand will begin March 30 with live racing taking place four days a week on a Thursday through Sunday schedule (with holiday exceptions). The 29-day meet will end with the Preakness day card.
