Preakness Day all-sources handle sets record

A record total of $99,852,653 was wagered from all-sources on the 14-race Preakness day card at Pimlico. The previous record of $97,118,658 was set in 2017.

Handle on the Preakness alone was $54,463,335

The total handle on Preakness day a year ago was affected by rain, races being switched from turf to the main track, and a high number of scratches.

The announced attendance Saturday at Pimlico was 131,256.
