The 140th running of the Preakness Stakes is this Saturday, May 16th from Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.
On Wednesday, the 2015 Preakness field will be set. Here is the updated list of horses that have been confirmed to compete on Saturday in the second leg of the Triple Crown — including jockeys, trainers and owners:
|American Pharoah||Victor Espinoza||Zayat Stables||Bob Baffert|
|Dortmund||Martin Garcia||Kaleem Shah, Inc.||Bob Baffert|

Bob Baffert won his 4th Kentucky Derby two Saturdays ago when American Pharoah emerged victorious by outlasting 2nd-place finisher Firing Line and 3rd-place finisher — fellow Baffert trained horse — Dortmund. Baffert is on a historical pace with American Pharoah. With two of the horses in this year’s field, Baffert looks to add another Preakness win to his resume.
Post time for Saturday’s Preakness is 6:24 p.m. ET and the race will be broadcast live on NBC. Coverage leading up to the 2015 Preakness begins at 4:30 ET.
