The Preakness Stakes - Second Jewel of the Triple Crown
Tickets to the Preakness grandstand sell out completely months before the race. Tickets to the best seats are gone well in advance. For information, call 877-206-8042.
The Preakness grandstand crowd, while not as formal as the Kentucky Derby patrons, is still a party for the rich. There is a tunnel connecting the grandstand to the infield, but as at the Derby, the two areas are very different.
