Preakness Day 2019 is on Friday, May 17, 2019: Preakness Infield Bathrooms?
Friday, May 17, 2019 is Preakness Day 2019. How to Dress for the Races: Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes ... If race-day style makes you
From a preakness veteran here... Your tolerance for the cleanliness of the bathrooms is directly proportionate to the amount of booze you consume. The lines aren't that bad. As the day goes on people start going in between the port-a-potties. Also, there isn't a superstar horse or story that will bring out a record crowd. The weather will also play a big factor in the turnout. Make sure you get there VERY EARLY and stake out (with wood stakes and rope) a place in the infield. You will lose real estate as the day goes on, but you'll have a spot. What are your transportation plans?
which horse will win the 2012 preakness?
From what I know watching The Preakness for years, is that this race favors stalkers and closers but NOT deep closers, and there's almost always a stretch battle. So, keeping that in mind, these are my picks for 2012-
I'll Have Another- Who is ranked the highest for The Preakness, he won the Santa Anita Derby, and the Kentucky Derby. Form is awesome. I'll Have Another qualifies on almost every factor. With that, he will seek to stay on a roll, looking for a shot at The Belmont.
Bodemeister- Strong contender no doubt. Derby earned him a sharp prep, he set the pace in the Derby only to be passed very late..as said The Preakness doesn't really favor Front-runners, yet ya never know Bode could be the exception. I'll Have Another and Bodemeister are my two key horses, that I will wheel with the field.
Went the Day Well- He could very well be the upset. In the Kentucky Derby he ended up 4th, pretty well for having the worst trip in the race . The blinkers have clearly made him a better horse. Look for John Velazquez to keep him closer to the front. As said, he was 4th in the Derby but only beaten 2 1/2 lengths, a sharp prep set up. He wins from a stalking position, has won at 1 1/8 miles (Spiral Stakes). If he has a trip similar to the one he had in the Spiral Stakes,we could have our Preakness winner.
When is the Preakness Stakes? ?
The 2012 Preakness Stakes was run on May 19th. The winner crossed the finish line at approximately 6:23 PM EDT. (I'll Have Another was the winner.)
The 2013 Preakness Stakes is scheduled for May 18th, 2013. It will most likely go off at approximately 6:20 PM EDT. So you have almost a year to prepare.
