Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore has been re-accredited by the National Thoroughbred Racing Association’s Safety and Integrity Alliance in advance of Saturday’s Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown. Pimlico is the third track to be re-accredited by the alliance this year, following Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky. and Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.
