Preakness Stakes

On Saturday, October 3, 2020, Swiss Skydiver became the sixth filly in the race’s 145-year history to win the $1 million Preakness Stakes (G1) at Pimlico, where the 2020 Triple Crown trail made its final stop.

Because the 2020 Preakness became a part of the Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge Series, Swiss Skydiver earned an all-expenses-paid berth into the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), the headlining event of the year-end World Championships that will be held in early November at Keeneland. She previously earned her place in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1) for winning the Alabama Stakes (G1) at Saratoga.

Race Recap/Replay

Sent away as an 11/1 longshot in the field of 11, Swiss Skydiver and jockey Robby Albarado sat a close stalking trip while Authentic dueled with his Bob Baffert stablemate Thousand Words early. An early move put Swiss Skydiver on terms with Authentic through the far turn and down the front stretch. The filly surged forward inside the 1/16 pole to win by a neck while completing the race in 1:53.28, the second-fastest in race history behind only Secretariat’s mark of 1:53 that he set during his legendary 1973 Triple Crown run.

Swiss Skydiver’s win was the sixth of her career, with each victory coming at a different track, and improved her record to 11-6-3-1. The Daredevil filly, purchased for just $35,000 as a yearling, has now earned $1,792,980.
