For tickets not bought directly through the official Preakness Stakes website, the costs are determined by third parties. It is generally cheaper to purchase directly through the official channels than when buying on ticket resale sites like StubHub or SeatGeek.

If you’re not planning to enjoy from home and bet on Preakness Stakes racebooks, plan ahead. Costs will be much higher if you are dining, or want prepaid drinks or table service.

When Do Preakness Tickets Go On Sale?

Preakness Stakes tickets usually go on sale around November of the previous year. This means you can secure passage to the “Middle Jewel of the Triple Crown” in time for Christmas.

Head over to the official site of the Pimlico Race Course to see what is available – you can also view a little history of the race as well as past Preakness Stakes winners and other horses of note.

Preakness general admission tickets are often the first to go. We can’t say with certainty that any are held back for later releases, but there will always be resale options available elsewhere. Again, these are often more expensive than if you buy them directly.

Where Can I Buy Preakness Stakes Tickets Online?

Like making Preakness Stakes picks at various betting sites, you can purchase your Preakness Stakes tickets from several different outlets. Although prices differ depending on where you buy them from, and if there are resale fees and other costs associated.

  • Preakness Stakes Website – The best place to purchase from a choice of tickets for the Preakness Stakes and full weekend packages.
  • Ticketmaster – Trusted site with plenty of resale race tickets, but fees can be excessive on the average ticket price from all tiers and brackets.
  • SeatGeek – This resale site charges both service and delivery fees on top of ticket prices for major events, which can add up.
  • StubHub – Another resale site, StubHub allows sellers to set prices that can often be on the high side (even the cheapest ticket prices) for events like the Preakness.
  • Vivid Seats – Like SeatGeek and StubHub, you can expect to pay service fees and charges on all ticket options that will take the price above face value.
  • Eventbrite – This American company charges its own Ticketing Fees to sellers, with costs to watch Preakness Stakes horses run often passed on to buyers.
  • Events Companies and Other Sources – Travel companies, local businesses, and even online sellers on social media may have event tickets to sell if you don’t get them directly.

Whether it’s Preakness infield tickets or boxes, the best way to secure a positive and safe buying experience is to buy directly from When this is not an option, you can use one or more of the above to check out costs. Always make sure to verify sellers before you buy, and to keep yourself safe when handing over money.

This is particularly important when buying on social media platforms. If you feel as though the best race tickets are not available and cannot afford the cost of resales, perhaps considering how to bet on the Preakness Stakes while watching from home is not a bad alternative.
