(LEX 18) — More changes are coming out of the horse racing industry, as the second jewel in horse racing's Triple Crown has been postponed.

The 145th running of the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Racecourse in Baltimore, Maryland was originally scheduled for May 16. While the Maryland Jockey Club did not announce a new date, they did say this year's race won't include the usual infield activities and events that surround the race.

The Kentucky Derby, which is the first jewel in horse racing's Triple Crown, has already been postponed to September 5.
