Watch the Preakness Stakes Online - 2011 Internet Broadcast Live
May 21, 2011
Get set to catch the second installment in the American Thoroughbred Triple Crown series when you watch the Preakness Stakes online May 21, 2011 from Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Md. This is the second most watched race in the series after the Kentucky Derby. Iíll be one of those avid fans watching, but Iíll be viewing the race from the comfort of a chair pulled up in front of my own computer. You could, too, if you grabbed a hold of this great software I found on the Internet that gives me access to all the great drama and excitement provided by the Preakness Stakes.
Ironically, although the Preakness is called the ďRun for the Black-eyed Susans,Ē none are ever used. Black-eyed Susans, the Maryland State flower, bloom in June and July. The 18 X 90 inch blanket laid around the winnerís neck is actual a blanket of Rudbeckia hirta painted black to mimic Black-eyed Susans. Other traditions include presenting the winner with a $30,000 replica of the famed Woodlawn Vase that is permanently kept. The actual Woodlawn vase is on display at the Baltimore Museum of Art and is brought out only once per year for the presentation at Pimlico under strict security.
You wonít need any strict security to enjoy watching live streaming video of the Preakness Stakes on your own computer screen. Simply download the software that is easy to install and use and youíre all set to watch the Preakness Stakes online.
