Preakness 2014 Logo Unveiled

Preakness 2014
BALTIMORE, 10-29-13---The Maryland Jockey Club today unveiled the Preakness 2014 logo for the 139th running of the $1 million Preakness Stakes (G1). The middle jewel of racing's Triple Crown will take place May 17 at Pimlico Race Course.

For the 15th consecutive year, the Leffler Agency designed the official Preakness logo. The agency's creative branding division, BrandNU Marketing, created the logo under the design guidance of senior art director Jeffrey Sewell. 

In the 2014 logo, the race is well underway as three horses gallop over the word Preakness (in the logo). Stylized horses and  jockeys seem to zoom in from thin-air giving a sense of movement to the illustration. A nod is given to Maryland as the state flag colors of red, black and gold are boldly used. Fresh and fun, the logo attempts to capture the race excitement that is unmistakably the Preakness.

"Creating the Preakness logo is an annual tradition for our design department at Leffler Agency and BrandNU Marketing," stated agency president/owner Bob Leffler. "We have had the honor of creating this national branding mark ever since 2000. This year's logo is all about the speed and excitement of the race." 

The annual running of the Preakness is a classic American institution. First contested in 1873, it is one of thoroughbred horse racing's most valued Grade 1 stakes races. Now one of the largest single-day sporting events in the United States, "The People's Race...The People's Party" has hosted up to 121,309 for the pivotal middle jewel of thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown.

Tickets for Preakness 139 have been on sale since Oct. 1 and can be purchased by calling the Preakness ticket office (877-206-8042) or by logging onto www.ticketfly.com.
