Vintage pins from 1988 Preakness Stakes, Baltimore The 1988 Preakness Stakes was the 113th running of the thoroughbred horse race. The race is held on the third Saturday in May each year at the Pimlico race course in Baltimore, Maryland.  These are two of the official pins.  I grew up in Baltimore and went to the race every year.  I worked at the race in 1988 and these were part of my uniform.  I've saved them all these years.  Hoping they go to a good home.
