The 147th running of the Preakness Stakes will take place Saturday at the Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.

While Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike will sit out the race, this year's Preakness will be interesting to watch with Derby runner-up Epicenter and Kentucky Oaks winner Secret Oath in the nine-horse field.

Post time for the race is 7:01 p.m ET. In last year's edition of the Preakness, Rombauer upset Medina Spirit as a 12-1 underdog with a last-second push down the homestretch.
