After the Kentucky Derby, horse racing is back on the American sports radar for a few weeks, at least until the Preakness Stakes. Then it could go one of two ways — a Triple Crown quest into the Belmont Stakes, or not. The good news is that betting on horse racing is legal across the United States, unlike betting on other sports, so you won't have a problem getting picks down online.
Once upon a time, the port-a-potties in the infield of Pimlico Race Course on Preakness day were lined up in long rows. At that same time, patrons could bring their own alcohol into the event, and they brought a lot of it. This led to one of the most infamous traditions in the history of day drinking, one that ended in 2009 — the "Running of the Urinals" at the Preakness.
Just because the Kentucky Derby is more popular and the Belmont Stakes crowns the rare Triple Crown-winning horses doesn't mean we should ignore the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course. Below are the past winners of the Preakness, the second jewel of horse racing's Triple Crown, along with the fastest winning race times and the best moments in the event's long history. Here is a list of the winning horses and jockeys of the Preakness Stakes.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
