Preakness Ticket Sales Up, Positioned for Record Attendance

Ticket sales for the 138th Preakness are up nearly 10% year-over-year. According to the Maryland Jockey Club President, the increase may be due to a change in the race's brand and the winning Kentucky Derby horse's ties to Maryland.
Orb, winner of the Kentucky Derby, was bred in Maryland at County Life Farm in Fallston and his owners are from Baltimore County.
Race organizers believe attendance will rise for the fourth straight year, surpassing last year’s record of over 121,000 people. According to the Pimlico website, "Preakness day ranks as one of the largest single-day sporting events in the United States. At least 100,000 have attended on-site in 10 of the last 12 years, including a record 121,309 in 2012."
