Pimlico Race Course announced Wednesday a spring schedule featuring 21 stakes races, including eight graded on Preakness Weekend May 15-16, and two bonuses for owners and trainers. The 140th Preakness, the $1.5 million middle jewel of thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown, to be run May 16, will highlight a weekend that will include the $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan (G2) for 3-year-old fillies, the $300,000 Longines Dixie Stakes (G2) for 3-year-olds and up on the turf, and the $300,000 Pimlico Special (G3) for 3-year-olds and up. Preakness weekend also will include two bonuses, one for the possible return of any winner of a Triple Crown event, and another for trainers. Pimlico will offer a $50,000 bonus to each owner and trainer who runs a horse in the Pimlico Special that has won a previous Triple Crown event. If a horse has won two Crown events, the bonus will be $100,000 to both the trainer and owner. Meanwhile, Pimlico will offer bonus money totaling $100,000 to trainers who run in at least five stakes and starter races during Preakness weekend. The trainer with the most points will receive $50,000, second $25,000, third $12,000, fourth $7,000, fifth $4,000 and sixth $2,000. For trainers to earn any part of the $100,000 point bonus, they must saddle a minimum of five horses in the Preakness, Longines Dixie, Pimlico Special, Black-Eyed Susan, James Murphy, Gallorette (G3), Chick Lang, Sir Barton, Deputed Testamony, Maryland Sprint Handicap (G3), Jim McKay Turf Sprint, Hilltop, Allair DuPont Distaff (G3), Miss Preakness (G3), Skipat and Kattegat's Pride and The Very One. Pimlico also will offer a Whips International Turf Starter Handicap for colts and geldings and fillies and mares which have run for $5,000 or less in 2014-2015 on April 4, May 2 and June 6. There will be a $5,000 bonus to the trainers of horses that have the most points after the series. Points will be awarded from first to third with every starter getting a point.
