The inaugural race took place in 1873 in Maryland, getting its name from a champion horse. That first race was won by Survivor, which finished a stunning ten lengths ahead of the other horses. Throughout the decades the Preakness Stakes evolved and became part of the Triple Crown Series. It is the second of the three premier horse races, held after the Kentucky Derby but before the Belmont Stakes. Its position ups the stakes for the entrants, as the winner of the Kentucky Derby must clinch another victory here in order to claim the Triple Crown. Participants in the Preakness Stakes have inspired legendary stories in horse racing, including the 1973 winner Secretariat, 2015's American Pharoah, and 2018's Triple Crown Winner, Justify.
