Preakness question, please chime in with your thoughts?
« on: March 22, 2019, 08:26:01 pm »

With all the instability at Pimlico and with those who own it...would it be too crazy for Oaklawn to try and get the Preakness?  If not Oaklawn...how about Keeneland, Fairgrounds, or another track that does not have similar ownership groups like Pimlico?
Think about it...Oaklawn would push the season 2 weeks later than now and could have the Preakness on closing day.
Yes...I know it is a pipe dream, but...

I am sure this thread brings a whole new approach to March Madness in horse racing lol...but nobody ever dreamed Oaklawn would have a MSW with a $101k purse lol!

Preakness before the Ky Derby? That would play hell with the triple crown records.

The Preakness would still be run two weeks after the KY. Derby and three weeks before the Belmont Stakes.

Right now Oaklawn ends on KY Derby day.  If we added 2 weeks, our last day would be exactly 2 weeks after the KY Derby which would be the day the Preakness is ran.

Shows you how much I get to keep up with Oaklawn in Ga. I still thought Oaklawn ended Ark Derby day as years past. Hope to be at Oaklawn next weekend. First time in several years.
