Pimlico Race Course is a pureblooded equine racetrack in Baltimore, Maryland, most famous for hosting the Preakness Stakes. Its name is acquired from the 1660s when English settlers called the location where the center presently stands in honor of Olde Ben Pimlico’s Tavern in London.

The track has a one-mile dirt oval, surrounding a seven-furlong lawn oval. There are stables for about 1,000 horses. Pimlico’s capability, including the infield, is over 120,000 people.

The track location is bounded by Park Heights and Winner Avenues to the west, West Rogers Avenue and West Northern Parkway to the north, Preakness Way to the east, and West Belvedere Avenue to the south. (Its namesake street, Pimlico Road, runs from the city line near Greenspring Avenue to Park Heights Avenue south of Cold Spring Lane, but is rendered alternate to with traffic between Northern Parkway and Belvedere Avenue.).

Pimlico Race Course was the original United States site for Virgin Festival from 2006 with 2008. Its name was changed, to Virgin Mobile Festival, when it returned to Pimlico on August 9– 10, 2008, with 5 headliners: The Foo Fighters, Kanye West, Stone Temple Pilots, Jack Johnson, and Nine Inch Nails.
