(LEX 18) — The Preakness Stakes has a new date, though no fans will be allowed to attend.

The race is usually held on the third Saturday in may, but "The Run for the Black Eyed Susans" was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The middle jewel of the 2020 Triple Crown will be held on October 3rd, four weeks after the rescheduled Kentucky Derby on September 5th.

There's still no word on when the third leg of the Triple Crown, The Belmont Stakes, will be held.
