"The Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown" has finally arrived with today's Preakness Stakes. Nine thoroughbreds will take the track at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore for a purse of $1.5 million. After shocking the world, Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike won't be participating in this year's event, which means there will not be an opportunity to have a Triple Crown winner.
As the second leg of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes is one of the sports' most-watched events with this year's attendance expected to be near 100,000. Kentucky Derby runner-up Epicenter is the current favorite to win the 147th Preakness but is expected to have stiff competition from Epicenter and Secret Oath.
NBC Sports will be proving coverage of the event, which will be hosted by Mike Tirico. Randy Moss and Hall of Fame jockey Jerry Baily, who is a 2-time Preakness Stakes winner, will be joining as analysts. The race will be called by Larry Collmus.
