Rain Changes some Friday Preakness Events
Updated: Friday, May 16 2014, 02:30 PM EDT
Because of the heavy rains falling Friday, some Preakness events at Pimlico Race Course have been changed.
According to Mike Gathagan, a spokesperson for the Maryland Jockey Club, there are 13 races scheduled for Friday.
The six races that were scheduled to be run on the turf will be moved to the dirt course. The storm is soaking the entire area and there are concerns for the safety of the horses as well as spectators.
Not all of the horses will run that were scheduled to on Friday. Preakness Handicapper Keith Feustle explains some horses cannot handle the mud and sloppy conditions of the track.
Crews are hopeful that the heaviest of the rains will move out by Friday afternoon and are planning on holding the first race at noon, as scheduled.
Feustle expects the track tomorrow to be "lightning fast" and that Friday's weather will not affect the Preakness Stakes on Saturday.
As of Friday morning, all concerts are still on. Special events include Annie Bosko at 4 p.m., followed by The Fray from 5:30-7:30 and ending with the Counting Crows from 7:30-9 p.m.
Saturday will bring sunshine for the main Preakness event.
