Preakness Stakes Day 

When: Sat., May 17, 12:15 p.m. 2008
Price: $4-$15

The new Tapeta turf has gotten more attention than usual after the tragic breakdown of the filly Eight Belles at the Kentucky Derby earlier this month. Golden Gate Fields (1100 Eastshore Hwy., Albany) installed the synthetic surface last fall and is pleased with the increased safety record racked up since then. Come see for yourself when the ponies start racing on Wednesday, May 14, and catch the next leg in horse racing's Triple Crown on Saturday, May 17. If you want to watch or wager on the locals, you've got all spring to do so. 12:15 p.m., $4-$15. www.goldengatefields.com
