The 141st running of the Preakness Stakes will be held on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

This year’s 11-horse field will include 2016 Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, who is the betting favorite heading into the race. Exaggerator, who finished second at the Derby, is expected to be the top challenger for the Preakness title.
