First contested in 1873, the annual running of the Preakness is a classic American institution. The Preakness is the second leg of horse racing’s Triple Crown, between the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes. One of the largest single-day sporting events in the United States, the Preakness has hosted up to 121,309 people.
Don’t know a superfecta from a tote board? It’s not all about the horses. Preakness InfieldFest is a multi-entertainment festival featuring national artists (recent headliners include Maroon 5, Wiz Khalifa, Bruno Mars, and Train) on two stages and bottomless beer in the popular MUG Club.
Check out what the Maryland Jockey Club, organizers of the Preakness, had to say about Ticketfly:
“Ticketfly is one of the most tech-savvy and forward-thinking young companies out there. We’re confident that Ticketfly will help us expand our market reach and offer our customers easy, efficient ways to purchase tickets and stay engaged with us online.”
